Will and Inventory of Thomas Holmes, yeoman, 1664

Holmes was a yeoman and left a modest will valued at £17 12s. 4d. His belongings were held in three separate houses in Basingstoke with his wearing apparel, musket and sword held in the house of Joseph Mansfield. He had high quality goods such as gold rings and silver dish and a number of books. Perhaps he was only visiting in Basingstoke.
