On further looking, I believe this has been mistranscribed and the 'Holl' isn't a location. I think it actually reads 'William Bent of Cosby, Holl in mynde' (Whole in Mind) etc etc

It could do.  We would need to see more of the text to comment, of course.

An example of a backwards c from 1594.

Thanks for that, but I'm not wholly convinced. If the apparent tail is attached to the R in the line below, as you suggest, I note that the initial letters R of Rog' and of Ryc' don't have such tails.

I do wonder if he wrote x and then attempted to erase it?

Perhaps the OP needs to roughly add up the inventory, just to get a 'ballpark' result?

Yes MrD, I agree with your reading:

...off cosby holl In mynd and w(i)t(h) a p(er)fett...

To confirm the total of the inventory - as per Bookbox's suggestion - can you add the individual amounts (or post images of the amounts)?

I would gladly add up the inventory but I unfortunately cannot read this number script.
