Alan Ernest Leofric Chorlton (24 February 1874 - 6 October 1946) was a British mechanical engineer and Conservative Party politician, and was involved in the development of the internal combustion engine. Chorlton was born in Audenshaw, Lancashire. He was educated privately and at the mechanical engineering department of Manchester Technical School. He served an apprenticeship at Mather and Platt's ironworks in Salford, while studying part time at Victoria University, Manchester. At the age of 24 he became a consulting engineer to Hubbard Textile Printing Works, St Petersburg, Russia. He returned to England and the Salford Iron Works where he rose to become general works manager and was largely responsible for redesigning the Mather-Reynolds pump manufactured at the plant.
