It's interesting to me that Vice Admiral Sir William Berkeley, the refused potential husband, also was dead within the year. He captained HMS Swiftsure against Dutch, but outran his squadron, was surrounded, and lost both his life and his ship. He's buried in Westminster Abbey.

To reiterate Barry Reich's comment from '07: "Happy New Year to all the folks who make my daily visit to this site so enjoyable. Here's to a 1665 of thought-provoking diary entries." And thanks anew to Phil Gyford to making this available a second time around.
