Edward Hooker Ensign

Edward Hooker Ensign (1818-1871), like his frequent business partner Humphrey Phelps, was from Connecticut, though he was of an entirely different generation than Phelps. Ensign seems to have taken over his father’s printing business in New York during the 1830s. There are certainly several maps from this period, which were published as being by ’T. & E.H. Phelps’ or simply as ‘Ensigns’. In general, Ensign collaborated with a number of New York printers, mapmakers, and publishers (especially Phelps and Horace Thayer) to produce a range of different and highly sought-after maps.
