Reuben Hyde Walworth (1788-1867)

Reuben Hyde Walworth was a jurist and the last chancellor of New York. During the War of 1812 he served as adjutant general in the New York state militia. In 1823 Walworth was appointed circuit court judge in New York, a position in which he continued until he was named chancellor in 1828, a post he was to occupy for twenty years. As chancellor, Walworth was aggressive and sarcastic in court, making many enemies, and when President Tyler nominated him in 1844 for the Supreme Court, Walworth's colleagues wrote that they recommended him in order to be rid of him.
