An excerpt from husband William's page:

Woolwich Storekeeper William Acworth was married 3 times:
first in 1638 to Avice Cole, whose elder sister married Peter Pett, son of Phineas Pett. There were 4 sons of his marriage to Avice Acworth who died in 1643.
second to Elizabeth Munday who died in 1646 childless,
and third to Elizabeth Smith in 1647 by which she had two children.

William Acworth is the Mr. Ackworth of Woolwich in Pepys' Diary and Elizabeth, 3rd wife, the Mrs Ackworth whom Pepys was always mentioning.
