Sauthier, Claude Joseph

Maps by the surveyor and topographer Claude Joseph Sauthier of the provinces and towns of New York, New Jersey, North Carolina and Canada published in the 1760's and 1770's, including during the American War of Independence. Sauthier (1736–1802) was employed by the British colonial government in the American colonies prior to and during the American Revolutionary War. Original copies of Sauthier’s maps are archived in King George III's Topographical Collection at the British Library in London, the Public Record Office in London, the North Carolina Division of Archives and History in Raleigh, North Carolina, and the Clinton Collection at the William L. Clements Library at the University of Michigan. Sauthier was appointed surveyor for the Province of New York in 1771. In this role, he was instrumental in surveying the boundary between New York and Quebec. In 1776, he surveyed and mapped Staten Island, New York, for British General William Howe, and surveyed and mapped Fort Washington on Manhattan Island after troops under the command of General Hugh Percy attacked and captured it. General Percy retained Sauthier on his staff when he commanded the British forces holding Rhode Island.
