On This Day in Trinity House History – 15 February


Samuel Pepys sworn a Younger Brother of Trinity House

From Samuel Pepys’ diary:

“With the two Sir Williams [Penn and Batten] to the Trinity House; and there in their society had the business debated of Sir N Crisp‘s sasse [a sluice or floodgate] at Deptford. After dinner I was sworn a Younger Brother; Sir W Rider being Deputy Master for my Lord of Sandwich; and after I was sworn, all the Elder Brothers shake me by the hand; it is their custom it seems.”
