Jean de Surhon (fl. 1550-1600) was a Franco-Flemish engraver and cartographer. His father and brother, both named Jacques, were engravers and cartographers as well: his father was also a silversmith. He is remembered for those of his maps which were incorporated in Ortelius' Theatrum Orbis Terrarum: those of Namur (1553), Vermandois (1557) and Picardy (1557). The original maps do not appear to have survived, and thus Ortelius' versions are the earliest acquirable to the collector. The first, 1570 edition of the Theatrum contained the map of Vermandois: Namur and Picardy first appeared in the 1579 edition. It is a testament to Surhon's maps that no improvement was made to them until the second half of the seventeenth century: Willem Blaeu's atlas would reprise Surhon's work in a faithful, though more beautiful copy of the Ortelius.
