The following list covers the Jamaican plantation surveyors and planmakers who produced the plans mentioned in the text, together with practitioners known from other sources. It contains the names of 220 individuals as well as partnerships and corporate groups, but gaps in the data mean that an unknown proportion of the actual total have not been recovered. In addition to surveyors and planmakers named on plans, lists of 'surveyors in commission' published in the Jamaica Almanack 1780-1867 and 'land surveyors' in the Jamaica Handbook 1882-1900 have been used. There are no lists of this type for the years 1700-79, 1847-60 and 1868-81. Information regarding dates of birth and death and public offices has been obtained largely from the Feurtado Manuscript (National Library of Jamaica), inventories (Jamaica Archives), and Philip Wright, Monumental Inscriptions of Jamaica (London: Society of Genealogists, 1966).
The format of the entries is as follows: name, dates of birth and death, dates of location in commission, limiting dates of known plans of plantations by parish, number of such plans, and public offices.
