Daily entries from the 17th century London diary
From Claire Tomalin TUS: family tree: died 1676: brother to John [papa] and Robert of Brampton:X ref : http://www.pepysdiary.com/encyclopedia/2934/Sam sees him, when he needs advice about Brampton and the family?
from L&M Companion(1595-1676). Pepys's uncle; elder brother of Pepys's father; described in his will as of St Alphage's parish. Possibly the Thomas Pepis who was admitted to the freedom of the Mercers' Company in 1615 after apprenticeship to Ricahrd Craicrofte. He quarrelled with Pepys over his brother Robert's will and was by then clearly a poor man. In 1660 he had enquired about a place in the order of Poor Knights of Windsor, and at his death was living as an almsman in Sion College. His wife was Mary Syvret or Chiveret of Jersey. They had three children: Tom the Turner, Charles the joiner and Mary, who married a weaver, Samuel de Santhune.
Thomas, son of Thomas the elder, the Black is probably the baptism in Wisbech where Thomas had married Mary Day a year before. In which case Thomas was baptised in 1597, and so was too young to be the Thomas who was apprenticed to Richard Craycroft. That was probably Thomas son of Elizabeth Pepys nee Bendish who married Richard Craycroft in 1607.
