What does the phrase "was borne over a bridge into the water" mean here?
[Anthony] Sherley ‘hath been lately assaulted in this city, or at least maketh it to be given out so, and that one of his company was sorely hurt; himself happily escaping the blow, was borne over a bridge into the water’.

"Bourne" in that context means carried or transported.
As in bearing (carrying) a load, but a past tense.
