A penny was a silver coin, and a weaver who did not get food or lodging as part of the compensation might get 5 pence per day. A penny might buy one of the following:

  • a quart of cheap wine
  • a cup of good wine
  • a gallon of medium grade beer
  • a quarter of a pound to a pound of dried fruit or nuts
  • a third of an ounce of pepper
  • one to two chickens
  • two dozen eggs
  • two pounds of cheese
  • three to five salted herrings

Bread, potage, meat, and beer, prepared at an inn, could cost 2 pence per day for one person.
