1721 Items in the Kitchen


This is part of the inventory of the estate of Samuel Sargent which was filed in 1721 in Middlesex County, Massachusetts. Part of the difficulty in analyzing any of records of this type is getting through the handwriting. This part of the inventory was of items "In the Cetchen[kitchen]" 

How many can you read?
Part of the inventory of Samuel Sargent, Middlesex County, Mass., estate files, Estate 19896, obtained on microfilm through the Family History Library
 One thing about reading estate inventory items is that some of the words used are the same as today and that can help us in determining how certain letters were written in parts of the document where we may not have a good idea of what the word is.
