Testator owed several debts, but only the materials he owed were listed, not to whom. The real value of the inventory is the list of men (and a few women) who apparently owed debts to the testator, because it reads like a virtual head of household census for the area in 1645.
In the order listed these were: Barnard WELLS,   Alles NEEDAM,   widdow WILLKENSE,   Anthony WILD,   Thomas DEPLIDGE,   Nicholas BANES,   Richard WARDLOW,   John BARBAR,   Elizabeth GARRAT,   Thomas ROWLAND,   Thurston ELOT,   John SLATER,   Nicholas DEPLITCH,   Henrie SIMPSON,   John SOMERSALL,   ffrancis HALLAM,   ffrancis BARBAR,   Anthony COCKER,   Robert MASLAND,   Robert ELOTT,   John HALLAM,   Henrie HABERJAM,   James MAUNTFORTE,   Adam FFURNIS, Thomas FFURNIS,   ffrancis COWPER,   Arthur NELOR,   James GREGORIE,   Roger LINLIE,   John PADFIELD,   Henrie ELOTT,   francis HALLAM,   Thomas COCKER,   George BARBAR,   William NELOR,   William THORPE,   Robert HILL,   francis PAGE,   William STONE,   Xtofer ABELL, John ABELL,   John ELIS,   ffrancis COWPER,   William TURNER,   Thomas BARBAR,   Adam ELLOT,   William THORPE,   John BERRIE,   Robert GREGORIE,   Anthony COCKER,   Thomas HAWKE,   ffrancis BARBAR,   Thos.
