Among his many accomplishments, Stokes served as assistant surveyor aboard the <b>HMS Beagle</b> during its well-known voyage around the world with Charles Darwin in 1833-36. Hooker's brief biography of Stokes includes a portrait and this entry: <div class="indenttextblock"> "Stokes, John Lort (1812-86) - Royal Navy officer and hydrographer, was chosen by Beaufort, the British Hydrographer for the 'Great New Zealand Survey.' Stokes had joined the navy as a ‘volunteer first class’ in 1824 and by 1843, he was an experienced surveyor with the rank of commander. In 1846, he was promoted to captain and in the following year was given command of HMS Acheron. Between 1848 and 1855, Stokes surveyed extensively in New Zealand waters. With Drury’s surveys they were the most complete investigations carried out to that time. Over forty-five New Zealand charts were published in the years following Stokes’ and Drury’s surveys. Some of Stokes' data were also incorporated in maps published by Arrowsmith." (Hooker, Brian.

First published by the British Admiralty in 1893, this is the edition of 1917 with corrections to 1919. Canada. <br></br> In June 1890, while outbound for the Orient from Burrard Inlet, BC the Canadian Pacific Railway steamer Parthia touched a shoal, incurring minor damage. The incident caused the Dominion government to recommend that the inlet be resurveyed and in April 1891 William J. Stewart arrived in Vancouver, British Columbia to lead the effort which lasted until September of that year. Travelling an estimated 75 miles of shoreline on foot and sounding over 450 miles by whaleboat, Stewart accomplished the survey of Burrard Inlet for less that $2,600.

Numerous soundings, navigation hazards, and aids to navigation are noted. Originally published from London in 1907, the chart underwent numerous updates and corrections over the following 70 years as noted in several locations on the chart. <br></br> The chart is based on the exploration of the Pacific Coast and Alaska led by Frederick William Beechy aboard the refitted survey ship "Blossom" which had recently been converted from an 24 gun sloop-of-war. During the course of their three-year voyage Beechy's orders were to explore the Bering Strait and to attempt to rendevous with Parry and Franklin aboard HMS Fury and Hecla, who were searching for a Northwest Passage from the East coast. Beechy is credited with the discovery of Port Clarence, one of the featured insets in this chart.<br></br> With inset detailed plans: <ul> <li>"Plan of the Anchorage of Chamisso in Kotzebue Sound"</li> <li> "Plan of Port Clarence and Grantley Harbor" </li> <li> the cut between Port Clarence and Grantley Harbor. </li> </ul> Number 563.
