Inventory of Estate

On 4 October 1593, administration on the estate of John Hopkyns of Winchester was granted to widow Elizabeth with William Hopkines posting bond. Hursley historian S.C. Rawdon arranged to have the following transcription made by Mrs. Barbara Burbridge of Ampfield (near Romsey), Hampshire, which we have checked against a copy of the original.

Particularly interesting items in John Hopkyng's inventory are his military uniform and equipment kept in the kitchen: '1 bow & sheaf of arrows, 1 sword, 1 dagger, 1 skull [i.e., helmut], greave & warbrace [i.e., armor for arms, hands and lower legs].' Most likely he was a yeoman archer serving in the militia. From his military apparel. one can form a graphic picture of an Elizabethan bowman fully dressed and ready for battle.

From the variety of beds included in all rooms of the house, we can conclude that it was full with family members and perhaps some servants. There were thirteen bed spaces: four in the parlor, two in the fore chamber, four in the second chamber, three in the kitchen. While it is impossible to determine if all beds were in use, the number certainly indicates that the four rooms provided a large number of bed spaces and this does not include two more in the little chamber, which was probably used for storage.
