Regarding the Berties / Bertus... Although L&M say that this pair was "Robert and Edward Bertie, sons of the 1st Earl of Lindsey", Wikipedia says that the 1st Earl and his wife (Elizabeth Montagu) had only one son, Montagu, the 2nd Earl.

Montagu had several children, among them Robert and Edward, so I'm assuming these are the two Pepys mentions.

The 1st Earl's family: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Bertie,_1st...
The 2nd Earl's family: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Montagu_Bertie,_2n...
