Captain William Mudge
Person Male Born 1/12/1762 Died 17/4/1820
Surveyor. Born Plymouth, godson of Samuel Johnson. Served in South Carolina. 1791 joined the Ordnance Trigonometrical Survey and became its director in 1798. Thus a very important figure in the work of the Ordnance Survey at this period. Lived at the Tower of London, and then at 4 Holles Street.
We can't find a picture of Mudge so we've used one of his maps.
