CREIGHTON, William, clergyman, born in New York City in 1793; died in Tarrytown, New York, 23 April 1865. He was graduated at Columbia in 1812, studied theology, and took orders in the Protestant Episcopal Church, and during a great part of his earlier ministry, 1816-'36, was rector of St. Mark's in New York City. During the suspension of Bishop Onderdonk he was elected provisional bishop of the diocese of New York, but declined the office. He presided in the diocesan convention for nine years, and in the lower house of the general convention of the P. E. Church during its sessions of 1853, 1856, and 1859. He was, from 1836 until 1865, rector of Christ Church, Tarrytown.
