Wills, bequests and Inventories

Attached is an inventory for Jonathon Snowdon. An inventory lists all a persons belongings including money and livestock upon his or her death. This one has been copied by me from the original and all items are the original spellings. Most items are easily identified but there are a few items that we are not sure of. Cushins are of course cushions so have a read and enjoy. Carol Narey
