I only recently discovered that I could order wills and inventories for my British ancestors from the Kent History & Library Centre in England. After a few hours searching I found and ordered 17 (yes 17!!) for my direct ancestors.
This is page 2 of the 1577 Inventory of my 12th great-grandfather Sylvester Spencer.
This is one of the earliest that I received and I am slowly struggling through it.
Take a look at the enlarged portion below with the bits that I've managed to figure out (I haven't done the cash amounts for each item):
Item: His wearing apparrel
Item: three featherbeds that belong to (Thomas smyth?)
Item: One tablecloth and two rowels [rolls] and fower [four] pillowcotes [ancient word for pillowcases] and fower [four] table napkins
Feel free to drop your suggestions here! This is tough. It's a 2 1/2 page inventory and his will which I have not yet looked at is one page.
