We are most grateful to Steve Podd who has sent us the following information:

John and Margaret Scarlet are listed in the 1715 Ecclesiastical Census, and the parish register records in 1734 the burial of John Scarlett, son of John and Margaret Scarlett. There is a probate inventory of John Scarlet, deceased, 'ale draper' (i.e. seller of ale), dated 1728 (SRO/I FEI/19/135). Of the goods in the house, the most valuable were ‘2 hogseds of milde ber’ valued at £3.12.0d; very few brewing utensils are listed however. 'Tenn Scots' (cattle) valued at £23.10.0d were kept on the pasture by the house. Fattening Scottish cattle was a common practice in East Anglia in the 18th century, albeit more prevalent in coastal marshlands than in the wood-pasture areas…
