In 1685 Christopher Browne published this double-folio sized map of the Chesapeake Bay region. in 1719 John Senex updated Browne’s plate. Little inland settlement had occurred during the intervening three decades and so Senex’s revisions were relatively minor. The Browne-Senex map was commercially very successful and was one of the best known views of the Chesapeake Bay colonies during the early eighteenth century.
