At Fort Number Four, someone asked me what the value of the 18th Century British Money is, as compared to our money today?

The information is part of an article that I'm writing and I figured that the info would be of some interest to you folks.  

Here's what I came up with:
18th. Century British £ New British £ U.S. $ Canadian $
One Pound 95.78 162.94 212.13
One Shilling 4.79 8.03 10.62
One Pence .40 .68 .88
