During the diary period the mother of Anthony Lowther FRS (c. 1641 - 27 January 1693) is called Elizabeth Whistler (second wife of draper Robert Lowther (died 1655); married again in 1657 to Daniel Whistler).

...Mr. Lowder with his mother and wife.
...Mrs. Lowther, and old Mrs. Whistler, her mother-in-law http://www.pepysdiary.com/diary/1668/05/10/

"Madam Lowther" could conceivably be either
- AL's aunt Elizabeth Hare, second wife of Sir John Lowther of Lowther ( SP would call her Lady Lowther, wouldn't he?)
- till her marriage 4 April 1668 AL's sister Margaret (Pegg) Holmes born Lowther http://www.pepysdiary.com/diary/1668/04/08/
- or (most probably) AL's wife Margaret Lowther born Penn http://www.pepysdiary.com/diary/1667/05/24/
but certainly not AL's mother.
