Peter Sharpe

Peter Sharpe (December 10, 1777 New York City - August 3, 1842 Brooklyn, New York) was an American politician who served as a United States Representative from New York.


He "was a Maiden-lane whip-maker, of the average intelligence of a mechanic" [ [] NYT on May 15, 1866] , and was an alderman of New York City.

He was a member from New York County of the New York State Assembly in 1814-15 and from 1816 to 1821, and was Speaker in 1820-21. He was a delegate to the New York State Constitutional Convention of 1821.

Credentials of his election as a Democratic-Republican to the Seventeenth United States Congress were presented but he did not qualify, and on December 12, 1821, Cadwallader D. Colden successfully contested Sharpe's election. Sharpe was elected as an Adams-Clay Democratic-Republican to the Eighteenth United States Congress and served from March 4, 1823 to March 3, 1825. He was an unsuccessful candidate for reelection to the Nineteenth Congress in 1824.

He died on August 3, 1842, in Brooklyn, New York, and was buried at the New York Marble Cemetery, but later re-interred at the Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn.
