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." Her husband, Abraham Jaggard -- L&H identifies as "... a wealthy grocer who often supplied navy victualling". Sarah Day Jaggard is apparently the daughter of Pepys' Uncle John Day. So she was a distant step-cousin once removed from Pepys. Or something. "after supper Mrs. Jaggard did at my entreaty play on the Vyall, but so well as I did not think any woman in England could and but few Maisters, I must confess it did mightily surprise me, though I knew heretofore that she could play, but little thought so well." High praise.
