Notes

Philip Goodyer was buried on 6 Oct 1707. Sarah his widow married William Swanhill of Padbury in 1714. Thomas Goodyer, who married Joan Wilston in May 1705 was probably his son; he is described as labourer for his marriage but fell(monger), i.e. a dealer in skins and hides, for the baptism of his daughter Joan the same month. Philip must have been involved in this trade as well as making horse-collars.

Cheney = china

Cart Saddle: the small saddle placed on the back of a cart- or carriage-horse to support the shafts (OED).

Pipe: A tube of leather, wood, or metal on a horse's collar through which the traces (or sometimes the reins) are passed to prevent chafing against the horse's sides (OED s.v., n.1,6)

Goody = Goodwife, the equivalent of "Mrs".

Sturbridge fair: Stourbridge Fair near Cambridge, held mainly in September, was one of the biggest fairs in England at the time.

Bellman = town crier.

Wadnold: wadmal was a thick woollen cloth (Chambers Dictionary).
