Since Pepys took his bachelor's degree in 1654, and Edlin entered in 1653, it is possible they knew each other, and certainly knew people in common. He must have been pleasant company because Pepys ate with him a lot.

L&M: Rev. Samuel Edlin of Watford (died 1698); graduated Magdalene College in 1657 (cf. his association with Herefordshire; i.59 and ii.139, and with Clement Sankey of Magdalene: iii.58). He took orders in 1662, becoming Rector of Silchester, Hants., in 1667. But there are several families of this name in Westminster around 1660.
