Sir Lestrange Calthorpe (1624-78) was a lawyer; Bencher of the Middle Temple 1667; and knighted 1675. He acted as man of business to his cousin Sir James Calthorpe. His kinsman in the city was Edward Calthorpe, member of the Grocers' Company and a Turkey merchant. They were family friends of the Pepyses -- Pepys himself consulted Sir Lestrange about Robert Pepys's estate, and Roger Pepys witnessed his will. In 1637 Sir Henry Calthorpe had made a will in which his 'loving friend' Talbot Pepyse had been appointed overseer.
