Name of creator
The Morris family practiced surveying through at least four generations: Charles Morris, Charles Morris II (1711 – 1781), Charles Morris III (1759-1831), and John Spry Morris (one of fifteen children born in Halifax, NS after 1786.)
In April 1831 Charles Morris III was replaced by his son John Spry, who served as Surveyor General of Nova Scotia until the office was merged with that of commissioner of crown lands in 1851. The Morris family thus held the position of Surveyor General of Nova Scotia for its entire existence, a continuity of service rivalled only by that of the Wrights of Prince Edward Island.
