Abstract:On 12th August 1945, the Hydrographic Department of the Admiralty attained the 150th anniversary of its inception; it may be considered opportune, therefore, that the chance discovery of an interesting manuscript by Sir Home Popham (1760–1820) should revive memories of one who, although an excellent surveyor and astronomical observer, received but scant appreciation of his efforts to advance the kindred sciences of Surveying and Hydrography. Although he was an “all round” seaman and better known as one who devised a Code of Signals, which was adopted by the Royal Navy in 1803, he was particularly well versed in the more scientific branches of his profession.
