The Arrowsmiths were a family of English mapmakers. The business was founded by Aaron Arrowsmith, Hydrographer to the Prince of Wales in c. 1810 and subsequently to the King in 1820. He was joined in 1810 by his nephew John Arrowsmith. After Aaron died in 1823, the business was continued by his sons Aaron Jr. and Samuel, who ran it until John took over the entire business. In 1863 he received the gold medal of the Royal Geographical Society, of which body he was one of the founders.
