The Four Pillars of Mayfair
by ©Tyne O’Connell
Mayfair was created by four great women of the 17th Century Restoration whose names remain sacred to every cobble, brick and garden square of Mayfair today.
MayfairEccentrics is campaigning for statues of these four great Mayfair Pillars of Eccentricity without whom Mayfair would not exist.
These four women are:
1. Lady Elizabeth Wilbraham 1632 – 1705
The first woman architect who designed Mayfair as the eccentric hub of Eccentric Women
2. Lady Mary Davies (Lady Grosvenor) 1665 – 1730
3. Margaret Cavendish Duchess of Newcastle 1623 – 1673
4. Aphra Behn 1640 – 16 April 1689
