Samuel Pepys, Fenchurch Street, The Mitre
Daniel Rawlinson became a vintner in London where he kept the Mitre on Fenchurch Street. He was a friend of Samuel Pepys and a staunch royalist who hung out a sign in mourning of the execution of King Charles I. His wife Margaret died in 1666 of plague and his business also burned down in the Great Fire of that year. He later rebuilt the Mitre. His son, Thomas Rawlinson, became Lord Mayor of London in 1705, and his grandson, Richard Rawlinson, became a great benefactor to the Bodleian Library.
