Per L&M Companion:

The pretty widow of a naval lieutenant, Anthony Burrows, who was killed in action in 1665. Her mother Mrs. Crofts kept a shop in Westminster where Elizabeth seems to have worked. An entry in Pepys's private accounts for 1667-8 ('Burroughs ... gloves') may refer to a purchase that was innocent. Most of his dealings with her were not.
