In addition to the above, three Glanvills, being of sufficient fiscal means, were required to supply resources according to a set of 'tax bands'. All of the Glanvills included fell into the category called "G7", a projected outlay of £10-20.
G7 required the handing over of: "One bow, one sheaf3 of arrows , one steel cap and one bill."
The "G7 three" were:
John Glanvill, of Tavistock & Brentor, who supplied what was required plus "one caliver4, two pikes"
Richard Glanvill, of Broadwoodwidger
Richard Glanvill, of Paignton
1 A bill was a six foot long pole with a hooked, sharp metal end, frequently with a spike on its tip. Billmen largely replaced spearmen in English warfare.
2 Gunner
3 A sheaf consisted of 24 arrows
4 A long-barrelled pistol
