Oh thank you so much, horselydown86 !!
I'll be very interested to see what you make of his sister's name, which is in the 3rd secction.

Rest of first section:

3 pease of [poulder?] vessel

one girdell

3 kites

one [trowfe?] tongues and [speae?]

certane plough geare



Last section:

debtes yt he ought    [I think it is ought although he hasn't crossed the top of the g.]

I agree it's sister annas or similar.  Compare the a in totalis above.

I suggest mandaugh but not sure.  Again there's the issue with the g.

In the total, I think the shillings is:  xixs

I'm inclined towards vjd as the pence but can see why you chose as you did.  You can calculate to check, of course.

In the two instances of the name William he has written willa with an upwards sweeping contraction mark.  I would transcribe as will(i)a(m).

You are getting pretty good at these now.

...Lynstocke for a horse...

...Armestrong...

John Bowman...

...crucke
for yowes...

...Hetherington of the [thonnemore?] m(er)chand...
  [ie merchant]

In the Grayson entry, I would say 18d.  They dotted Arabic 1 for a period around this time.

...Bell
of the parke [Nouke?] three score poundes lacing two shilling(es)


In the surety for Thomas Atkinson, I make the amount:  viijli saveing xvj grot(es)   [The x is crossed-out, IMO.]

I will finish it later if no-one else does so first.

Regarding words like shilling(es) in the Bell entry, the last character is a brevigraph which usually stands in for -es or -is.

See the line 10 (mainly) and line 8 of the table here:

Thanks, horselydown86 - and for that link to the brevigraphs which is very helpful - am slowly beginning to recognise some of the "shorthand" of that time.
One of the useful things about this inventory too is the names of his siblings - a little window into the previous generation.
