About Richard Pepys (cousin)

No, the Richard Pepys who was Lord Chief Justice of Ireland isn't mentioned in the diary; Wheatley was correct. This Richard is his son, as the 1893 text describes.

I've corrected the Lord Crew link and added some more explanations to his page and a few relations, in an effort to clarify things in future!

Nine years later I've changed the "my man William" link from Will Howe to Will Hewer. Better late than never!

L&M's index says it's the James Douglas, the 2nd Marquess of Douglas, so I'll leave the link as it is. Which isn't to say they're infallible!

Simon - is there any particular text that's hard to read, or is it all of it? Even the lighter text looks pretty dark to me, but these things can vary quite a bit depending on display and computer settings, never mind individuals' eyesight. Let me know, as I'd like to make sure it's easy to read for everyone!

Sorry for the slow reply; it's been a busy week. Many thanks for the kind comments. It's difficult to change anything on a site that people visit frequently and are fond of because, understandably, it's very easy to disrupt habits.

john: I'd have to ask Dean, the designer, why he chose the green. I think we tried a couple of other colours too, although that was nearly 18 months ago. Green seems to work -- there's something of the leather-bound book or luxurious wallpaper about it I think!

William: I don't use Facebook much myself. Any suggestions for what format Pepys would be most suited to on Facebook? (No promises though; there's always so much to get done!)
