A Visit to Vauxhall

11 May 1741
Went to Vauxhall with Miss Monyard and Miss Hodgson by water spent 5s10d

Entry to the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens was 1/- per person so the rest must have been the boatman's fee and for food & drink.
Here are two pictures from about the right era

And click here for lots more information about the gardens.

Monyard doesn't seem to be a name - Maynard?
