Alfred Usher (1836 - August 6, 1906) was a British land surveyor and cartographer active in Belize, in the mid to late 19th century. Usher was born in Belize, at the time British Honduras. The Usher family had a long history in British Honduras, being present from at least 1786 and part of the old settler elite. Alfred Usher's father, John Usher was born on St. Georges's Caye (April 15, 1793). Alfred was involved with attempts to build a railroad from Belize City to Guatemala City. Later helped to establish Birchington Township, a plan real-estate development on the Southern Lagoon near Gales Point. Nothing remains of this development, so we assume it was a failure despite aggressive promotions in prominent North American newspapers. He was a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. His brother, Edward Potts Usher (1824 - 1868) was the Assistant Crown Surveyor for British Honduras.
