one word driving me mad!
« on: Sunday 05 May 19 21:27 BST (UK) »
Please, what does this say? Not important really but I don't like to be beaten.  The usual wording is "a true and just inventory" or "perfect" but for the life of me I can't work out the third word. 

A true [] or Inventory of all the Goods and Chattels, debts and credits of Benjamin Crossley of Nether House in Langsett in the Parish of Peniston....
Pearson (Bradwell Dby & Stocksbridge)
Donkersley
Crawshaw (Bradfield)
Evans (Bradwell Dby and Stocksbridge)
Crossley (Penistone)
Rogers (Nottinghamshire & Stocksbridge)
Bramall (Bradfield/Wadsley)
Walton (Hunshelf)

A mis -spelling of Schedule?
The word can be used to mean a list ,as inventory is,but it is a bit archaic
these days.

I'd never have come up with Schedule!  Thanks.  The rest of the spelling wasn't bad, but I just couldn't imagine what this word was.  From 1781, so quite archaic, though I've more usually seen pfect [perfect].  You live and learn, thanks!
