Biography:
John Rocque
Of Huguenot extraction, Rocque began his career in 1734: his French extraction is reflected in the subtitle to his Small British Atlas, which was Le Petit Atlas Britannique. Surveyor, engraver andpublisher, Rocque earned a considerable reputation as a skilled large scale surveyor, especially for his town plans which included a very large scale plane of London on twenty four sheets, and a large scale map of Exeter. By 1753 he had become Topographer to the Prince of Wales.

A fire in 1750 destroyed a large amount of his stock . On his death (c.1762), his wife Mary A. Rocque carried on the business.
