For many years English settlers in coastal Maine were targets for attack by the French-backed Abenaki and other indigenous groups. Consequently, Southack made many trips to Casco Bay, including one in 1702, when as captain of the Province Galley he raised a siege of Fort Casco. During these visits he assembled an impressive body of knowledge reflected in the detailed geography and soundings on this chart. Depth shown by soundings. Appeared in English Pilots from 1721 to 1794 according to Coolie Verner in The English Pilot, the fourth book, London 1689. Amsterdam : Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, 1967.
