In May 1756 troops from Hanover and Hesse were stationed in southern England in case of French invasion. Their presence was deeply unpopular. This small map is probably by William Roy, a key member of the survey of Scotland, who was at the time one of a team surveying parts of southern England in response to the French threat.
