John Cary (d.1835)
Regarded as one of the finest Engish cartographers, well known for his county maps, he also produced world atlases, road maps, sea charts, town and canal plans. He became Surveyor of the Roads to the General Post Office, commissioned to survey the roads of England in 1794.

Originally from Wiltshire, the son of a maltster, he was born in February 1755, the second son of George and Mary Cary. He had three brothers, Francis (1756-1836) also an engraver, William (1759-1825) a map publisher and globe maker with whom he collaborated, and George the elder (d.1830) who was a partner at 86 St. James Street, London (1820). His two sons, George the younger (d.1859) and John, joined the firm in 1820. The business passed to G. F. Crutchley c. 1844 and later to Gall and Inglis.
