Created by two of the Virginia colony’s most accomplished surveyors, Joshua Fry and Peter Jefferson (Thomas Jefferson’s father), A Map of the Inhabited Part of Virginia containing the whole Providence of Maryland, with Part of Pennsylvania, New Jersey and North Carolina, also known as the Fry-Jefferson map was the definitive map of Virginia in the eighteenth century. First published in 1753, the map delineated for the first time, the entire Virginia river system and the northeast-southwest orientation of the Appalachian Mountains. The map was widely copied, including several French editions and served as an important resource for later mapmakers, who relied on the map to create new maps of British colonies and of Virginia.
