Thomas Badeslade was a topographical artist and mapmaker, based in London. He produced several drawing of country houses for Dr. John Harris’s ‘History of Kent’ (1719) and for other similar publications. He later drew maps for ‘Chorographia Britanniae: or, A New Sett [sic] of Maps of all the Counties in England and Wales’, published as a ‘pocket volume’ in 1754. An advert for the publication describes Badeslade as a ‘surveyor’. He was also concerned with issues around the draining of the Fens and wrote ‘The history of the ancient and present state of the navigation of the port of King's Lyn, and of Cambridge’ (1725). In addition ‘Some Short and Plain Considerations’ by Badeslade were published in the ‘Manchester News-Letter’ in c.1728.
