Daily entries from the 17th century London diary
Travel by boat on the Thames was the quickest way from point to point in the London/Westminster area, and on downstream to Gravesend.
Here's a link to a table of established passenger fares (1655) for various types of boats plying the Thames to and from Gravesend:http://www.shipbrook.com/jeff/boatfare.html
Please note: the common price was in Latin [xvi d] note also with or agin' the tyde.
