Biography Cemyuel Pepys (Pepys Samuel)
Born February 23, 1633 in London, the son of a tailor. He studied at St. Paul's, cheekbones and Modlin College, Cambridge. His diary (1660-1669), reflecting the author's zest for life and an extraordinary breadth of interests, left the rare complete picture of the time. Entries in the diary were in shorthand, the system of Shelton, but it took more than a century before they were deciphered and partly published (1825).
In 1660 as a private secretary of Admiral E. Montague (in the near future graph Sanduicha), his cousin, made an expedition to The Hague, to return from exile of Charles II and his brother King James. There is no more vivid picture of the Restoration of the Stuarts (and the official coronation of 1661), than the one presented in the diary of Pepys. Equally impressed by the stories about the plague of 1665 and the Great Fire of London 1666.
Man express public temperament, keenly conscious of civic duty, Pepys showed himself very actively in the public service. He served twice as Secretary of the Admiralty (in 1673 and 1684), two terms as head of trinity house service. In 1690 published the memos on the status of the Royal Navy (Memoires Relating to the State of the Royal Navy). Pip died in Klapeme May 26, 1703.
