Daily entries from the 17th century London diary
Wife of William: http://www.pepysdiary.com/encyclopedia/911/
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#?
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.
Thanks Mary, clearly the family tree on this site (http://www.pepysdiary.com/background/familytree/) is incorrect.
The family tree is now corrected.
