                       FUNERAL CUSTOMS

       There is only one reference to funeral customs to be found in these records.
      At the June, 1674, court, George Godfrey, a carpenter, who appears, as were
      most carpenters, to have been an undertaker as well, entered suit for 250 pounds
      of tobacco against Richard Beck at whose instance he “did make and deliver
      two Sevall Coffins for the desent buriall of the Father and Mother of him the
      sd Richd at Sevall tymes.” He also sued Beck for two pairs of gloves valued
      at 6o pounds of tobacco, and a pair of shoes valued at 25 pounds, apparently
      worn at the funeral. The carpenter won his suit (p. 562).
