Daily entries from the 17th century London diary
Will Bowyer was among the friends and colleagues that Sam hangs out with early in the diary. Claire Tomalin, in “Samuel Pepys: the Unequaled Self,” lists out the names of these young men.
[p67] “Will Bowyer was only a doorkeeper, but his father Robert was an usher at the Exchequer…”

William Bowyer (1624-94) was the eldest son of Robert Bowyer, Usher of the Receipt in the Exchequer, under whom Pepys worked early in his marriage. William held the post of doorkeeper in the Exchequer from c. 1655. He died a bachelor. (L&M Companion)
