Daily entries from the 17th century London diary
Wife of William Wood (jun.).
Wife of William, http://www.pepysdiary.com/encyclopedia/5055/ .Elizabeth Pepys lodged with them during the plague and following the fire.
Why, in Latham, is it implied that Wood's wife and Barbary Sheldon are two different women (a comma appears after 'his wife'#, an implication further compounded when, later in that entry, Latham suggests that the two people who accompanied the Pepys's and Creed to the Bankside inn were not Mr and Mrs Wood at all, but Barbara Knipp #and her husband#?
I have to say I am rather disappointed by Latham, whose notes are distinctly sketchy. Heresy?
