Joseph (Francis) Bouchette Jr. (1800-1881), son of the Surveyor-General of Lower Canada sought funds to support his “Canadian Atlas”, an enlarged edition and more detailed version of his 1831 work. He was unsuccessful.
A surveyor in his own right from 1820, J. F. Bouchette was Deputy Surveyor-General by 1840 and – following the abolition of the Surveyor-General Office – was appointed Senior Surveyor with the Crowns Lands Department in 1851.
