Glossary and Notes

(5239 total words in this text)
(6 Reads)   

Many of the words and phrases used by Pepys in his Diary are now obsolete. Many others, although still in use, have acquired quite different meanings since his time. In addition, Pepys makes occasional reference to institutions and customs which either no longer exist or have been completely forgotten about.

Each and all of these can prove a barrier to the full enjoyment and appreciation of these diaries in the twenty-first century. The following list is an attempt to remove the majority, at least, of these barriers. It is by no means exhaustive and will, moreover, be augmented as the complete set of diaries are uploaded to this site. Anyone reading the diaries here and who comes across an obsolete word, term or expression which is not included in this list is encouraged to alert us to the omission and we will do our best to see that it is included.
