A few things I spotted:

<> --> 'Architects had clamoured for years to redesign and plan a more elegant London.'

<> --> 'Robert Hubert, a French silversmith and watchmaker, confessed to starting the fire.'

Good job overall! I'm quite impressed.smiley - ok

Hi Mina, good job on the collaborative entry smiley - smiley

I think the sentence 'He could not describe the bakery, or where it was but was sentenced to hang at Tyburn anyway.' requires an extra comma after 'where it was' ie:

'He could not describe the bakery, or where it was, but was sentenced to hang at Tyburn anyway.'

Apart from that, I didn't spot any typos and can't think of any omissions right now. It might be nice to mention the entry about the fire in the Diary of John Evelyn, as it makes a nice complement to the superior Pepys: http://www.geocities.com/Paris/LeftBank/1914/ed_1666.html#fire (Perhaps you could either link to this website, so interested researchers can read more). I'm a big fan of the use of the tag in historical entries to incorporate a bit of (copyright-free, of course!) primary source material.
