William Berry's 1681 map, "North America Divided into its Principall Parts
where are distinguished the severall States which belong to the English,
Spanish and French . ."
shows a peculiar boundary between Carolina and Florida. Although this was
an English-produced map, it obviously does not favor English claims for
Carolina's territory. It is marked with blue arrowheads on the image at this URL:
It seems similar but, more “purposeful” than the boundary between Virginia and Florida
on Jansson’s 1641 America Septentrionalis. Is there a historical basis for this
strange boundary, or is it just a random creation of the cartographer?
Thanks in advance for enlightening me.
