Inventory of administration of John Gell of Carsington 1574
« on: Sunday 14 April 19 12:45 BST (UK) »
Hi all, I am having some difficulty reading most of this inventory from the administration of the estate of John Gell of Carsington in Derbyshire in 1574. I have previously asked for help deciphering the text above and below the inventory, but not the inventory itself. This was my previous request: https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=773226.0

Many thanks for any assistance on the inventory that anyone is able to give.
