William Norman

born? d.1807

Assumed to be the son of John Norman. William's name appears for the first time in 1794 as publisher for the "The American Pilot." An advertising broadside exists naming him as the publisher of the many of John Norman's charts and pilots with a date c.1798. In this advertisement, this chart is shown as being offered as part of a group of "single charts" or as we call it today, separately issued. (See "Mapping Boston" by Alex Krieger and David Cobb, p. 43 for illustration)
