From Latham-Matthews on Kate Sterpin:
"'Catau' (Kate) Sterpin, a maid-servant to Elizabeth Pye of New Palace Yard." - 1/16 & n.6

SPOILER ALERT:
On August 8, 1660, she married Henri Petit, who was a French educator.

We'll learn more later!

I too am reading one entry a day on the anniversary of the Pepys writing it.

The spoiler from Pauline above about the monarchy being restored is disappointing. There was a plea earlier to avoid such things. The author requesting for no one to say if England is a monarchy to this very day or not.

It is fun to live in 1659/60!
