David R. Floyd-Jones

David Richard Floyd-Jones (April 6, 1813 – January 8, 1871) was an American lawyer and politician.

Life

A descendant of an old Long Island family, he was born at the family mansion on the Fort Neck estate in South Oyster Bay, New York (then Queens, now Nassau County) as the son of Brigadier General Thomas Floyd-Jones (1788–1851) and Cornelia Haring Jones Floyd-Jones (d. 1839).

He was educated at Christ Church Academy in Manhasset, and graduated from Union College in 1832. He studied law in Schenectady, and commenced practice in New York City in 1835. He was a Democratic member from New York County of the New York State Assembly from 1841 to 1843, a member of the New York State Senate from 1844 to 1847, Secretary of State of New York from 1860 to 1861, and Lieutenant Governor of New York from 1863 to 1864.

He died at the family mansion in 1871, and was buried at the Floyd-Jones Cemetery, on his Fort Neck estate. His wife Mary Louisa Stanton Floyd-Jones died on July 22, 1906. They had seven children.

He was related to Civil War colonel DeLancey Floyd-Jones.
