A quick glance in The 1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue shows 'molly' (must be an abreviation of 'mollihawk') and the term 'sodomite' also seemed to be frequently used. I haven't seen any words or phrases that would apply to lesbians-- even in the 18th century they did not seem to be acknowledged, at least as far as I know.
