I suspect, but cannot prove, that this is the John Derneley named in a court action of 1555 in Doncaster (various documents on the web) to recover a debt from the estate of William Rawlynson/Raulynson, administrated by his father Richard Rawlynson. Another similar action by Roger Wolhouse, haberdasher of London, in 1556-58, is for a 'debt for haberdashery supplied'. -JAD.

There is a crease down the centre and odd letters missing at the ends of lines so apologies for errors. A diccar, line 23, may be a dick or dick (these are also mentioned in the inventory) which the OED says is a leather apron used in the North by children or shoemakers, etc but it appears to say a "halfe diccar" which doean't seem to fit with that meaning.

line 13 dicker. In the OED I found this as a leather apron but Stuart A. Raymond in /Words from wills and other probate records 1580-1800 / pub.2004 says that a dicker is "the usual unit of exchange ie ten in dealing with hides and skins".
line 14 over leather is for making shoe uppers (Stuart Raymond)
line 16 clout leather is thick leather for patching.(Stuart Raymond)
line 26 Latten is an alloy of copper zinc, lead and tin similar to brass but weaker.(Stuart Raymond)
line 37 wort is unfermented beer and a lead is a large cauldron for the same.(Stuart Raymond)
line 40 bulting. The OED and Stuart Raymond only give a boulter, a line with fish hooks, but that seems unlikely here.
