Pepys in Love: Elizabeth’s Story

By Patrick Delaforce

In 1655 a beautiful, talented young Huguenot girl of 15 married a humble ‘mean little clerk’ called Samuel Pepys.

Pepys in love – Elizabeth’s Story is a totally factual account derived from Lord Braybrook’s edition of the Diary. It also incorporates new research, including Huguenot and French records of Elizabeth’s life, her eccentric family, her wild tempestuous marriage with the ‘Saviour of the Navy’ and her numerous admirers – from the Duke of York, ‘My Lord’ Edward Mountagu and the Bordeaux wine shipper William Batailley to Samuel’s lifelong friend, William Hewer.
