Thomas Kitchin (1718–1784 was an English engraver and cartographer, who became hydrographer to the king. He was also a writer, who wrote about the history of the West Indies. He produced 170 maps for London Magazine (1747–83). Kitchin was the head hydrographer for the King of England. Kitchin frequently stole the works of other cartographers,
