About City of Denham Springs

The city was named for John Denham, a British surveyor who visited the area in 1811. The area has been known as Amite Springs, Hill's Springs, and Denham Springs. The city was named for John Denham (1773–1847), a British surveyor who visited the area in 1811. He had served with General Sir Ralph Abercromby at Alexandria during the Egyptian campaign of 1798-99 and then became Surveyor General of Lower Canada from 1800 to 1812 when he retired on half pay due to ill health.[3] In his retirement years he lived near Bath where his son William Henry Denham (1809-1884) invented an improved type of steam locomotive boiler which is still used today.[4][5] His other son George Samuel Dennam (1797-?) also became an engineer but died young after being involved with Brunel on railway projects including Box Tunnel and Maidenhead Railway Bridge over River Thames.
