Richard Everard, grocer of the parish of St. Olave in Old Jewry, where he has lived for fifteen years, literate, of free condition, thirty years old, as he says. Inducted as a witness etc., he says that he has known William Halley for ten years, and Agnes Wellis for a year or thereabouts. This witness, questioned further about and on the contents of the libel, each and every article successively, by the fame and truth of the articles, he says that he knows only that he had heard someone named Butler, recently the husband of Agnes`s mother, saying that the aforesaid William would marry Agnes and that he would have with her twenty pounds of English money. And otherwise he knows nothing concerning the contents in this libel as he says in virtue of his oath.Ricardus Everard Grocer de parrochia sancti Olavi in veteri Judaismo, London, ubi moram traxit per xvcim annos, literatus, libere condicionis, xxx annorum etatis ut dicit. Testis et cetera, dicit quod Willelmum Halley per x annos, Agnetem Wellis per annum vel circiter bene novit ut dicit. Ulterius interrogatus iste juratus de et super contentis in dicto libello, omnibus et singulis articulis seriatim, fama et veritate dictorum articulorum, dicit se tantum scire videlicet quod audivit quemdam cognominatum Butler nuper maritum matris dicte Agnetis dicentem quod prefatus Willelmus maritaret dictam Agnetem et quod haberet cum illa xx libras monete Anglie. Et aliter nescit deponere de contentis in dicto libello ut dicit in virtute juramenti sui.
