David H. Vance (1799 - c. May 29, 1832) was an American mapmaker, surveyor, and engraver based in New York and Philadelphia. Vance is an important if elusive figure. He appears in a ship passenger manifest form 1824 returning from England, where he is identified as a Land Agent and Surveyor. He drafted many of the maps for Anthony Finley's New American Atlas, and engraved several maps for Harty's Modern Atlas. In 1825 - 26 Vance compiled an important large-scale wall map of the United States and a map of the world, both also in partnership with Anthony Finley. In 1825, along with J. Ogden Dey, he completed a seminal map of western New York state.
