"Thursday 24 August 1665
"... At noon down to Sir J. Minnes and Lord Bruncker to Greenwich to sign some of the Treasurer’s books, and there dined very well; and thence to look upon our rooms again at the King’s house, which are not yet ready for us."

I read this to say that the Navy Offices were to be in the King's House at Greenwich Palace. Pepys is never this specific on the location again.
