Alsop, Timothy

All that L&M say is...

Brewer to the Royal Household; dead by 1666.

Second Reading

Either Mr. Alsop did more than brewing, or he brewed enough to provision navy ships from time to time:

"Mr. Alsop and his company came and consulted about our Tangier victualling and brought it to a good head."

Another Pepys pun!

The pop-up note on Alsop says dead in 1666--but here we are in '64. Is Pepys mistaken to report Alsop's death? Did he recover to live another two years?
