Notes

Administration was granted on 10 Sep 1730 (167AW27) but there are no further details. It is very unusual for an inventory to have survived at St Albans from this period.

John Deverill was buried at Granborough on 27 May 1730. He had a wife Joan (bur. 12 July 1720) and sons George (b.1718) and William (b.1720). He also seems to have been the father of John Deverell, ironmonger, of Winslow, and to have lived at Biggin.

Cives: probably sieves

Flaskett: a long, shallow basket (OED)
