Another copy of the inventory, presumably written by John Robinson, is recorded as being registered at St Albans in 1716. The original uses Roman numerals.

Notes

Thomas son of John Robinson was baptised at Winslow on 10 Nov 1611. He is probably the same man although it would mean that he had his children unusually late in life:

Simon's baptism is not recorded at Winslow.

The total value of the goods did not cover the legacies.
