Perkins noted in Old House of Antient Town of Norwich: 1660-1800, (Norwich, CT: Press of the Bulletin Co., 1895), p. 193 that his house was opposite side of Long Hill road.  the inventory is a wonderful snapshot of a late seventeenth century Connecticut household.  It makes reference to a number of various pieces of furniture including a ‘Great Chest valued at £15 and a small table and a great table cloth valued at £19.  The most interesting item of note is a “Rugg + blankett” valued at £7.  This may be the earliest mention of use of a bed rug in America.
