For my job I recently had to look up some information on William Chorlton --the author, horticulturist, gardener from Staten Island, New York. I thought I would post some of my findings here just in case it helped anyone out.

William Chorlton, author of:

The American grape grower’s guide : Intended especially for the American climate... (1852 ed.)

Later editions under title:
Chorlton’s Grape growers’ guide

From and historical newspapers (proquest):

1854 naturalization record which is a likely match for our William Chorlton.

1860 federal census record for the Chorlton family in Richmond Co. NY (Staten Island).
William is listed as 48 yr old gardener, born in England.
They appeared in other years as well.

1886 Staten Island directory entry for a William Chorlton, horticulturist, 16 John, West New Brighton

1889 (Aug 21 or 22) NYT obit for William Chorlton, staten island.


This looks like an article on William Chorlton, I found this in HeritageQuest Online - PERSI - people search, information about people in periodical articles:

"William Chorlton, 1811-1889," Staten Island Historian, Summer issue, vol.6, no.1, 1988, page 1-eoa.
