Lt. David Hoyt, born in 1651, was captured by French and Natives at the time of the Deerfield Raid in February 1704, and died of starvation at Coos, New Hampshire, in May 1704. The list of his household possessions, tools, and clothing help us to understand the life and material culture of an early 18th century resident of a frontier town. As one can see by the totals, his estate (79/19/3) far outweighs the debts he owed (27/06/0).
