Lt. Robert  Kearsley Dawson R.E. (1798-1861)
Later Lieutenant-Colonel, was the son of Robert Dawson a Devonian, who had been active during the first Ordnance Survey of 1809.  R. K. Dawson entered the Royal Engineers in 1818 and worked in Scotland under Thomas Colby, Superintendent of the Ordnance Survey.

Dawson prepared the boundary surveys for 277 county maps and the city plans of England and Wales which were printed as a result of the reform bill of 1831 and related to the boundaries act passed in July 1832.  The maps and plans were subsequently published in two volumes in 1832 in Plans of the Cities and Boroughs of England and Wales.   The whole work was produced by Lithography by James Hansard in London and is an early example of the use of this process.
