Wife of Mr Lovett, a varnisher.
"Thence home, where I find Mr. Lovett and his wife came to see us. They are a pretty couple, and she a fine bred woman. They dined with us, and Browne, the paynter, and she plays finely on the lute. My wife and I were well pleased with her company."
I wonder if Pepys is making a class statement by not giving us Mr. and Mrs. Lovett's first names, no matter how finely she plays the lute.
