I have one more question about a 1600 will I am working on transcribing, and it mentions a tool, which I can't decipher. It reads:
"I give & bequeath unto my sone John Tilly one mault stone, one mault Quirne, one Iron Bound Cart, one peare of [tscyethes?], one Furnace."
Honestly, the leading "t" looks more like a "k" to me, but that seems it would be a very strange spelling. It appears to be a pair of scythes, which seems reasonable. Has anyone ever seen this spelling? I'm worried I might be mistranscribing it.
It is in the fourth to last "Itm" found here:
Could someone with better paleography skills or knowlege of early modern tools make out the proper transcription?
