"I find that the very pretty daughter at the Ship tavern, at the end of Billiter Lane, is there still, and in the bar: and, I believe, is married to him that is new come, and hath new trimmed the house."
"Mercer tells me that the pretty maid of the Ship tavern I spoke of yesterday is married there, which I am glad of."
July 19 and 20, 1667
So it is with surprise that I see we don't know the name of the proprietor, or of his pretty wife, since Pepys was certainly on her trail.
It was a large establishment and must have paid Chimney taxes.
