I took a stroll from my office in the City of London at lunchtime today, and stumbled upon the gravestone of William White - Fishmonger and Citizen of London.

Is this known about ?

Any dates on the gravestone? Mary's husband William was a fishmonger.

Is Aunt Wight (Mary, nee Kite) related Samuel Papys' mother Margaret #nee Kite#?

Mary  •  Link

Aunt Wight was not a Kite, but a Sutton.
She married John Pepys's half-brother, William Wight.

John Pepys mother, Mary Day, first married Thomas Pepys ("the Black") by whom she had 6 children, one of whom was Samuel's father, John. She subsequently married Rice Wight of Guildford, by whom she had William.
