William Faden (1750-1836)
Faden was a cartographer and publisher who took over Thomas Jefferys's business in 1771 and held the position of Geographer to His Majesty the King and the Prince of Wales. Faden's work was of the highest standard and he was chosen to produce the very first map for the Ordnance Survey - a map of Kent in four sheets - in 1801.
