My brother Tom [ The one working with Papa] came to me with patterns to choose for a suit. I paid him all to this day, and did give him 10l. upon account http://www.pepysdiary.com/diary/1660/06/28/

"Tom" was born in 1634, was apprenticed to his father and followed him into the tailoring trade. He struggled socially, in part because of a speech difficulty, which rendered him less than desirable as a mate. Nor did he husband his business well. At his death 15 March 1664, he left debts of more than £300 and an illegitimate daughter by his maid who had been put in a foster home. (L&M Companion and the Diary)
