About Richard Charlton

Wigmaker Richard Charlton first appears in Colonial Williamsburg records in early 1760. His previous residence is unknown, although he may have emigrated directly from Alnwick, Northumberland, England. Richard Charlton married Sarah, called “Sally,” Satterwhite in early 1765. Their daughter Jane was born on August 21, 1766. Their sons, Edward and Thomas, are named in Richard’s will, but their birth dates and birth order are not known.

In addition to his wigmaking trade, Charlton operated a coffeehouse on the north side of Duke of Gloucester Street.
