Avens (Geum urbanum, Linn.) - "The Augsburg Ale is said to owe its peculiar flavour to the addition of a small bag of Avens in each
cask. The fresh root imparts a pleasant clove-like flavour to the liquor, preserves it from turning sour,
and adds to its wholesome properties. "  http://www.botanical.com/botanical/mgmh/a/avens083.html,

Burnet - In Culpepers at http://www.bibliomania.com/NonFiction/Culpeper/Herbal/chap055.html or modern info at http://www.botanical.com/botanical/mgmh/b/burgre88.html 

As for regency berries, I have no idea but it is possibly a term used either in period or locally for a common berry variety.
