Benjamin Barker (1766 - 1824)

Born in London into a family of instrument-makers. At the age of fifteen or sixteen was briefly apprenticed to a local watchmaker, but after two months transferred to the workshop of the map and lettering engraver William Palmer (1732 - 1812), a close neighbour of the Baker's, in New Street Square. Palmer's reputation was considerable. From his workshop came a number of engravers who wer to establish their reputations in the field of mapmaking - John Cary, John Russell, Robert Rowe, John Lodge, and Benjamin Baker.

After his apprenticeship, Baker worked for fifteen years from premises in Islington. In 1804 he was appointed principal engraver to the Ordnance Survey. For the remainder of his career he led a team of engravers assembled, initially at the Tower of London, to work on the original series of the famous one-inch maps.
