John was educated at Westminster School and Trinity College Cambridge before becoming a travelling tutor to the sons of the nobility, guiding them on Grand Tours. In 1723 he went to Europe with George Cholmondeley (1703-70), Lord Viscount Malpas and later 3td Earl Cholmondeley, publishing this account of their tour. Here the travelling companions are depicted among antiquities, with an elevation of George's seat, Cholmondeley Castle, on a banner held up by two allegorical figures.
