Biography:
John and Charles Walker
John and Charles were the sons of John Walker Snr who worked for Alexander Dalrymple, Hydrographer to the East India Company in 1779 and for the Admiralty in 1795. John took over as hydrographer in 1808 and when he died Sir Francis Beaufort (wind force scale) was appointed. John the younger also became hydrographer to the East India Company in 1836. He and Charles continued the family firm until 1890.

They were prolific engravers for other cartographers as well as for themselves and they published maps of India, the provinces, the Americas, the world and in their most important work, British Atlas, including 47 maps of the English and Welsh Counties.
