Ayscoughfee Hall

Ayscoughfee Hall Museum stands in Ayscoughfee Gardens, five acres of public park. It is known that the present footprint and acreage of the Gardens dates back to at least 1732 when they can be compared to John Grundy's map of Spalding from that date. Maurice Johnson II (barrister and founder of the Spalding Gentleman's Society, 1688 - 1755) was probably responsible for laying the Gardens out. They were influenced by the fashions of the time and Johnson's strong connections with London.
