EVANS, Lewis, geographer, born about 1700; died in June 1756. During an active career as a surveyor he collected materials for a map of the British colonies in North America, and in 1749 published one of the middle colonies, embracing New York, New Jersey, Delaware, and the adjacent Indian country. A second edition appeared in 1755, containing also Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and a part of New England. Governor Pownall republished the map in 1776, with large additions. Evans also published "Geographical, Historical, Political, Philosophical, and Mechanical Essays" (2 series, Philadelphia, 1755; London, 1756). In the last series he replied to some strictures on a statement questioning the English title to Fort Frontenac, which had appeared in the first.
