      mentioned in fathers will

      Leasee of Graveney Court Faversham

      Left £877 in his will which should have made him one of the wealthiest men in the county but his debts were such that his estate was left £188 in debt.

      Within the last fifteen years, historians have become increasingly aware of the limitations of probate inventories. A particular concern is that, while inventories give details of money owed to the deceased, they do not list debts owed by him, and thus often give an exaggerated idea of his wealth. Margaret Spufford has discussed the limitations of probate inventories with particular reference to her research into the financial affairs of petty chapmen and London stationers and Lincolnshire yeomen, husbandmen and labourers.' She cites the example of Charles Yarwood of Macclesfield, whose probate inventory listed goods worth a total of £9226 4s 8d, but whose will showed him to be deeply in debt to Francis Dashwood of the City of London. 35 Another example is that of Henry Hougham of Graveney in Kent, who from his probate inventory appeared to be a well to do yeoman worth £875. At his death the rent he owed was £566 19s in arrears; and when this and his other debts had been paid, his estate was left with a negative balance of £188 14s l1d
