THOMAS KITCHIN (1718 - 1784)
Thomas Kitchin (or Thomas Kitchen) was an English engraver and cartographer, who became hydrographer to the king. He was also an author, who wrote about the history of the West Indies. He was born in Southwark, and was apprenticed to Emanuel Bowen in 1732. Originally based in Clerkenwell, by late 1755 Kitchin was established on Holborn Hill. From 1773 Kitchin was royal hydrographer to the king. He married Sarah Bowen, daughter of Emanuel, in 1739, and then Jane, daughter of Joseph Burroughs, in 1762. He died in St Albans 23 June 1784. Kitchin lived and worked in London.
"The World From the Best Authorities " engraved by Thomas Kitchin, published in Guthrie's New Geographical Grammar, 1777. He produced John Elphinstone's map of Scotland (1746), Geographia Scotiae (1749), and The Small English Atlas (1749) with Thomas Jefferys. The Large English Atlas (with Bowen 1749-60) was a serious attempt to cover England at large scale. In 1755 Kitchin engraved the Mitchell Map map of North America.[citation needed] He worked for London Magazine. He produced 170 maps for London Magazine (1747-83). Kitchin was the head hydrographer for the King of England. Kitchin frequently stole the works of other cartographers, which is one reason why he "created" so much work as a cartographer.
