http://www.pepysdiary.com/diary/1664/02/19/ Friday 19 February 1664 "... we on foot to Mr. Jaggard, a salter, in Thames Street, for whom I did a courtesy among the poor victuallers, his wife, whom long ago I had seen, being daughter to old Day, my uncle Wight’s master, is a very plain woman, but pretty children they have." That's Abraham Jaggard -- L&H identify: "... a wealthy grocer who often supplied navy victualling". And his wife, Sarah Day Jaggard -- L&M Companion -- apparently the daughter of this John Day. So she was a step-cousin once removed from Pepys. Or something.
