Further Information

In 1764 Blaskowitz was assigned by Samuel Holland to chart the coast of Rhode Island, no doubt to ascertain the suitability of the area of Newport as a harbor for ships of the British Navy.In the course of this work he also accepted a private commission by the local Rhode Island farmers in around 1770 to create a map for their purposes.It is a particularly charming feature of this map that the names of the principle farmers have been added by Blaskowitz, apparently in his own hand as if as a note to himself or perhaps as an afterthought. Note the inclusion of the Fourth Baptist Meeting House ('G' on the index) which was founded in 1770.
