1831 Estate Inventory: Translation Help, Please!

Hi --

I am on the track of an elusive ancestor, Sven Cantzoff, and have been searching through any and all records that might pertain to him. He appears in Stockholm in 1799-1800 from...unknown. With a generous supply of help from this message board, for which I am very grateful, I have learned a wealth of important detail about his life post-1800 in Stockholm (though the period before that is still dark).

Again, with the aid of a kind poster, who let me know that Sven Cantzoff did, after he died, leave enough behind to merit an estate inventory. I have found this record and, though I can translate a few items, such as the names and birthdates of his children, the rest of the material is a challenge to me.

I will attach the few pages of the inventory, if anyone has the time and inclination to help with translation of any details that seem noteworthy about this "mysterious" individual. The originals can be found in the Stockholms radhusratt 1:a avdelning Ella 12:458 (1831-1831): image 3060/page 264; image 3070/page 265; image 3080/page 266; image 3090. Again, I'm looking for just a few details and the general gist of what Sven left behind; no need to translate every item.

By understanding what Sven left behind, it may bring me closer to where he came from, if that makes sense. I very much appreciate any advice, translation or suggestions.

Thank you, thank you --
