Notes

Roger Atwood married Anne Wells at Winslow on 25 April 1659. They had a daughter Anne, bap. 18 Oct 1660.

The premises in which the inventory was taken seem to be part of The Bell. The names of the rooms correspond to those used in earlier inventories of The Bell, and Roger Atwood had some connection with Henry Pym (d.1666), baker and innkeeper of The Bell, who left Roger the use of his "cake-print".

ministers chamber: This room could seat a number of people but was not used for sleeping. If "minister" means a clergyman, was Samuel Dix the current vicar unable to use the vicarage, or was there a curate using the room? Or had the name survived from an earlier use of the room? Alternatively, it could be "ministers" of the law, and the room was used by JPs or for the manor court (as certainly happened at The Bell later).

turky worke: imitation of Turkish tapestry work (OED)

flag = wicker

pastree: cf. the pestary in the inventory of John Malens the baker (1661), whose business Roger had presumably taken over.
