Say it isn't so:

from L&M Companion – Lettice (Lissett) Howlett was sister of Pepys' mother. She married firstly, ____ Haines, and secondly ____ Howlett.

Lettice Kite Haines Howlett’s sisters = Margaret Kite Pepys (Sam's mom), Katherine Kite Fenner (married Thomas Fenner), and Ellen Kite (who appears to have been unmarried).

SO Betty Howlett Mitchell is Pepys’ cousin?

Yikes!

"Say it isn't so."

It isn't so ... per Phil Gyford.

Lettice Kite Howlett is Pepys' aunt ... and Mrs. Howlett, Betty's mother, is no relation.

I am relieved.
