Edward Philip Livingston

Edward Philip Livingston

Edward Philip Livingston (November 24, 1779 Kingston, Jamaica - November 3, 1843 Clermont, Columbia County, New York) was an American politician.

Family background

He was the son of Philip Philip Livingston (1741-1787, son of Philip Livingston) and Sara (Johnson) Livingston (ca. 1749-1802). In 1799, he married Elizabeth Stevens Livingston (1780-1829, daughter of Chancellor Robert R. Livingston), and their daughter Elizabeth Livingston (1813-1896) was the grandmother of Anna Hall Roosevelt, and great-grandmother of Eleanor Roosevelt. After his father-in-law's death, Edward P. Livingston became the master of Clermont Manor which he left to his son Clermont Livingston (1817-1896).


He was a graduate of Columbia College.

He resided at Clermont Manor from 1802 until the time of his death.

He was aide to Governor Daniel D. Tompkins, and private secretary to his father-in-law, Robert Livingston (1746-1813), while US Minister to France.

He was a member of the New York State Senate from the Middle District between July 1808 and July 1812; and from the 3rd District 1823 to 1824, and from 1838 until his resignation in 1839.

He was a presidential elector in 1820 and 1832.

He was proposed in 1830 for Governor of New York, but his right was questioned on the ground of his having been born in the island of Jamaica. It did not invalidate his claim, but was used to defeat his nomination, and he was elected Lieutenant Governor instead, and served under Governor Throop in 1831-32.

Notable relatives

He was a grandnephew of Governor of New Jersey William Livingston; grandson of the signer of the Declaration of Independence Philip Livingston; first cousin once removed of Speaker of the New York State Assembly Walter Livingston;aw first cousin once removed and nephew by marriage of Secretary of State Edward Livingston; and second cousin of United States Representative from New York Henry Walter Livingston.
