Another Visit to Vauxhall

28 May 1741
Spent going to Vauxhall with Mr & Mrs Scott & Madam Warterland the prince and princess of Wales was their. 3/-

Here are portraits of Frederick, Prince of Wales and Augusta. They married in 1736. George II and his Queen loathed Frederick. He was prevented from visiting his mother as she lay dying and George seems to have been relieved when Frederick died, so the throne would pass directly to Frederick's son, George.

Where was Madam Warterland's husband? If, as I suspect, he was a clergyman, it may have been unseemly for him to be in such a place on a Sunday?
