Henry Popple worked with the Board of Trade & Plantations in 1727, during a period when boundary disputes in the colonies began to accelerate the need for detailed maps. In 1730, the Board began requesting detailed maps of the entirety of the provinces and contiguous French and Spanish Dominions. Popple issued an announcement for the map in 1731, but did not complete work until 1733.
The map was not a commercial success and did not sell well until after William Henry Toms and Samuel Harding took over publication in 1739. With the outbreak of the War of Jenkin's Ear, the map saw its commercial successes soar. In 1746, the rights to the map passed to Willdey and Austen, who published it until Austen's death in 1750.
Popple made use of both French and English maps, with De l?Isle?s Carte de la Louisiane figuring prominently as a source. The Mississippi River system and its tributaries, the names and legends in the Mississippi Valley and the ?High Plain? in Michigan originated with De l?Isle. Other borrowings were made from de Fer, and English mapssuch as those of Cadwalader Colden and Col. Barnwell.
