Biographical History

Aaron Arrowsmith, British cartographer, founded a mapmaking firm in London in the late 18th century. In 1791, the Hudson's Bay Company appointed Arrowsmith to prepare maps, and gave him access to the Company's archives and to information collected by the Company's traders in North America. Arrowsmith's first map of North America, published in 1795, charted large parts of Canada on a map for the first time. Arrowsmith's maps were regularly updated and, after his death in 1823, his sons Aaron Jr. and Samuel, and later his nephew John Arrowsmith, continued the firm.

From the description of A map exhibiting all the new discoveries in the interior parts of North America, [1820-1833?] / inscribed by permission to the honorable governor and company of adventurers of England trading into Hudsons Bay, in testimony of their liberal communications to their most obedient and very humble servant, A. Arrowsmith, January 1st 1795. (Unknown). WorldCat record id: 702181047
