Further Information

This beautiful manuscript chart is in the hand of Mr. George Alexander Frazer but it is the work of Henry Wolsey Bayfield and his team of surveyors.Bayfield is revered, even today, for his dedication to surveying the Great Lakes region of Canada and the United States as well as for his attention to detail.

The beautiful chart presented here almost belies the suffering which Bayfield and Collins had to endure in the making of it.Frequently having to endure ‘clouds’ of ‘moschettoes’ at the west end of the lake, along the Detroit river and up in to lake St. Clair. Poor diet, inclement weather and sheer loneliness weer also factors. Bayfield completed the survey of the north and south shore of Lake Erie and of the shoreline of Lake St. Clair and the St Clair River in 1817. Malaria was a constant threat and at one point Bayfield was forced to have two weeks off work in Amherstburg to recover from an attack of ‘ague’.
