This inventory arises from a very complex lawsuit that was initiated in July of 1339. Bartholomeus Martini senior had been married to a woman named Sanxia, and she bore two sons, Bartholomeus junior and Raolinus. Both sons got married, Bartholomeus to a woman named Francisca and Raolinus to Nicolaua. Fourteen years ago, Sanxia died, naming her two sons as her heirs, but granting her husband Bartholomeus senior usufruct of the inheritance for life. She herself had been the sole heir of her father Raymundus Raolini, so her estate was worth a great deal. After Sanxia's death, Bartholomeus senior married a woman named Nicolaua, and together they had children. Because he is old and senile, according his sons, they are concerned that the Raolini inheritance will go to his children by Nicolaua. Accordingly, they are taking steps to recover the Raolini estate from the estate of their father. In addition, their two wives are seeking to recover their dowries from the estate. Francisca's dowry is worth 300l., and Nicolaua's 600l. The entire case may be found in ADBR 3 B 38, folios 135r to 164r. The images provided here are limited to the signature containing the inventory, which was bound into the court register.
