Shoemaker, on the n. side of fleet St close to Fetter Lane. In 1666 he had two apprentices and paid tax on eight hearths. He was a liveryman of the Cordwainers' Company and a man of some breeding, to judge by the frequency with which he gave Pepys news of theatrical events. The 'Wooton' who was Pepys's manservant in 1699 may have been a relative.
