John Cary (1755 - 1835) was an English cartographer, engraver, globe maker and publisher. He worked with his brother George. In 1770 Cary was apprenticed to William Palmer, and by 1794 was Surveyor of Roads to the General Post Office. He is best known for his English county atlases including Cary's New and Correct English Atlas (1787 - 1789). He engraved the plates for Robert Gough's edition of Camden's Britannia, (1789, 1806).
