Library notes
Probate inventory: "14 bookes"
Tyler notes: "His inventory, which is a very interesting one, amounted in tobacco to 6361 lbs, and consisted chiefly of articles of wardrode - 3 pr gloves, 3 broadcloth suits, periwig, rapier, ribbon, slippers, cuffs, &c. He was probably a royalist, who had figured in the civil wars in England. His will mentions his eldest son Thomas, living in England on 'Fair Church street' (London?), and son John living on 'Gracious street,' and gives 'my Bible-booke also my Eare-Ring with a diamond in itt" to daughter Elizabeth Broadnax."
