T.C.Thurlow of West Newbury, Massachusetts founded Cherry Hill Nursery in 1832. Other family members were George C. Thurlow, 1881-1952, and Winthrop Thurlow.

[From The Book of the Peony by Alice Harding, 1917, p. 62:] T. C. Thurlow, of West Newbury, Massachusetts, was one of the early growers in this country. Starting in 1875, after some years' work he got together a large collection which included most of the varieties which ha been introduced. James Hartshorn of Chicago, on looking over Mr. Thurlow's grounds, examining the labls and taking note of the different kinds, asked that a price be named for the whole lot of peonies. On all of his peonies, except two plants each of a hundred varieties, Mr. Thurlow fixed nine thousand dollars, which figure was forthwith accepted. The collection filled two freight cars, After the plants had been shipped, Mr. Thurlow started to get up a new collection, better than the one he sold.
