This is Sir George Mackenzie of Rosehaugh, Scottish judge, antiquary, political philosopher, essayist, persecutor of the Covenanters and reputed poltergeist: not to be confused with Sir George Mackenzie of Tarbat (later Earl of Cromartie) who, long after the Diary period, indirectly provided Pepys with some information about 'second sight' among the rural Scots (letter from Sir George Reay quoting Mackenzie, 1699, in de la Bédoyère, 'Letters of Samuel Pepys' [2006]).

Pepys calls Mackenzie of Rosehaugh 'a sorry man'; however, long afterwards he would acquire the same author's 'A Moral Essay preferring Solitude to Public Employment' (1685 edition, still in the Magdalene College collection).
