      I can find no mention of Ann's birth, nor anything of her existence,
      in the entry James -- family children, L&M Index, vol xi. For the
      birth of her elder sister Mary ('William & Mary")
      http://www.pepysdiary.com/archive/1662/05/01/index.php ; the
      christening of her brother:
      http://www.pepysdiary.com/archive/1663/07/22/index.php . I do not
      believe she has an Encyclopedia page as yet and perhaps may never
      have one.
