Christopher and John Greenwood
A surveyor of Wakefield, Christoher Greenwood (1786-1855) moved to London in 1818. He compiled and published large scale maps of the counties of England during the years 1817-1831 (the first to be completed was Yorkshire, surveyed 1815-17). From 1821 he was in partnership with his brother, James, who was also a surveyor and publisher (fl. 1821-40) and they traded together as C&J Greenwood.

They carried out entirely new surveys in opposition to the Odnance Survey. Their accurate and detailed maps of the country took only 17 years to complete compared to nearly 100 years by the OS!
