      This Inventory of the Estate of Benjamin Berryman Gent decd was return'd into Court upon Oath by - Elizabeth Berryman his Relict & Exetutrix and Ordered to be Recorded.

      GTCCW Test: G Turbervile CClerk
      _______

      MB Notes on the above Inventory:

      The Inventory has been resequenced from the original and a few items have been combined.
      "Do" (ditto) marks have been replaced with appropriate text and some of the spelling has been updated.
      Although I've tried to explain the obscure terms there are still some "unknowns". For instance, the "Chamey" sugar box and the punch bowl and also the "Flagg" chairs.
      I believe flagg refers to a type of fabric on the chair
      seats and Chamey may be a type of glass, crystal or perhaps enamel on metal.
      I believe the word "Hide" in the bedstead items refers to a "tanned leather hide" that was laid over the ropes (and below the feather bed).
      A "Rugg" was a type of blanket (perhaps a "bedspread") not a floor rug.

      As lengthy as the inventory is ... I think they missed a few things.

      I didn't find Benjamin's clothing, shoes, wigs, eye glasses (if any), tobacco pipes, rings, or other personal items.
      It is also little surprising that he didn't have a carriage or wagon by 1729. I know the roads were "horse paths", but I thought they might at least have one wagon. They did have an Ox cart (waine). Also they seemed to be a "little light" on saddles, harness, etc. given as many horses as he owned ... unless the other saddles were considered the property of Elizabeth and the children.
      I would have liked to have seen an inventory of Benjamin's Mill, but the "large grinding stone" may be a millstone. MB
