Vincent Woolsgrove of Ramsgate, Kent was jailed for two years and ordered to pay £35,000 costs after declaring five cannon that he recovered to be from two different wreck sites. Two of the cannon were from the English vessel London and the other three were Dutch cannons which he declared to be from a different site. The Dutch cannons originally came from the city of Amsterdam and were later established as having been loaned to Dutch vessels which had subsequently been captured by the English and their cannons subsequently assigned to English warships such as the London so it was established that all five cannons had been aboard the London.
