11 August 1741
Went to Tottenham Court Fair wth Mr Jolley & spent with several whores their 2/6

Tottenham Court Fair, held at junction of Euston and Hampstead Roads, abolished 1808
Most of the references which Google provides seem to refer to crime.
However, there seem to have been play booths and other entertainments not to mention "Smock Races".

13th or 14th August (Thomas doesn't make it clear)
This day Old Mr Thomas Hinchcliffe was Buried at East Hamm in Essex

I wonder who Thomas works for now? I am hoping that a visit to the Guildhall Library will tell me.
