Graeme Spence (c. 1758-1812), maritime surveyor to the Admiralty, surveyed large parts of the British coast and ports and the West India Docks in London. In 1789 he was charged by the Admiralty with surveying the Isles of Scilly, completing his work in 1792. He later acted as pilot to Lord Nelson on HMS Medusa. Spence invented many instruments and survey apparatus, several of which were used by the Royal Navy.
