Thanks, Terry, cleared that one up.
Amazing how little Pepys is known in France, in spite of the French connection.

I tried to put this in the encyclopedia, but can't find an entry, although I know it has been discussed before.
Listening to French radio (France Culture) yesterday as they revued a French edition of Tomalins book and was struck by their pronounciation of Sam's name and wondered if it was perhaps closer to the way Pepys was pronounced in his time:
Two syllables - pip-psie is the nearest I can get, this being the way french treats the letter y (as yee).

I see that Gutenburg has re-issued The Diary today, (Wheatley version) presumably with the scan errors corrected.
