Per L&M Companion:
Benjamin Scott was a relative, his wife being Judith, daughter of Sir Richard Pepys (Lord Chief Justice of Ireland 1655-9), and a member of a branch of the family with strong Essex connections. He was a citizen and pewterer of St Sepulchre, Holborn; to judge by the names in his will, he himself came of an Essex family. His wife died in Apr. 1664, he in the following December.

Pepys records an apparent contradiction:

26 April 1664 "My wife gone this afternoon to the burial of my she-cozen Scott, a good woman; and it is sad consideration how the Pepys's decay, and nobody almost that I know in a present way of increasing them."

16 December 1664: "Thence to my cozen Scott’s"
An L&M footnote reads: "Her husband, Benjamin Scott, citizen and pewterer, of St Sepulchre's, Holborne, had died. In his will (of the 9th) he had left Pepys 20s. for a mourning-ring." https://www.pepysdiary.com/diary/1664/12/16/#c5...
