Despite the Pandemic, the Public Engagement Office at the House of Commons is responding to its email: I received this clarification today:

"Thank you for your email to the History of Parliament, ...

"I have spoken to my colleague Dr Robin Eagles, who is the editor of our 17th/18th century House of Lords project, and he has confirmed that there were indeed two William Sandys, but they sat in differing houses.

"In his diary Pepys is referring to William Sandys, 6th Lord Sandys (1626-1668), who was married to a daughter of the 2nd earl of Salisbury. He has an entry in our Lords 1660-1715 volumes which, although unavailable online, has been published and can be purchased, or read via all major reference libraries (the British Library, etc.). This is the William Sandys you are interested in. [AUGUST 11, 1667]

"The other William Sandys (1607-69) wasn’t a lord but the MP for Evesham that you have found within our Commons 1660-90 vols. ..." [MARCH 6, 1668]

Best wishes,
