BOUCHETTE, Joseph, Canadian topographer, born in 1774; died in Montreal, 9 April 1841. He was a son of Com. Bouchette, who distinguished himself in the early period of the revolutionary war on the northern frontier of the United States. In 1790 he entered the office of his uncle, Major Holland, surveyor-general of British North America, and in 1814 succeeded to this office himself. While connected with the surveyor-general's department in a subordinate capacity, he served in the colonial navy on the lakes, and in the royal Canadian volunteers until 1802. He was actively employed in the campaigns of 1813-'4, and in August. 1814, went to England to publish his topographical and geographical description of Canada, which was issued in 1816. During 1817 and 1818 he was engaged in establishing the boundary-line between the United States and the British possessions. In 1831 he published "The British Dominions in North America," containing the result of fifteen years' labor on the topography, geography, and statistics of Canada, and in 1832 the "Topographical Dictionary of Lower Canada."
