Early life and education

Edmund Trowbridge was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts to Thomas Trowbridge and Mary Goff. His great-grandfather, also named Thomas Trowbridge, migrated from England to Massachusetts during the Puritan migration to New England (1620-1640).

Trowbridge graduated from Harvard College in 1728 and married Martha Remington, a daughter of Judge Jonathan Remington (1677-1745) in 1738.[1]

Career

In 1749, Trowbridge became attorney general for the colony of Massachusetts. However, in 1767 he was removed in favor of someone who was more outraged by British aggression.

He was not out of a job for long, as he was appointed Associate Justice for the colony's supreme judicial court within the year. In 1770, he was one of the presiding judges for the trials of the British soldiers and others involved in the Boston Massacre. Trowbridge retired to private life two years after this trial.[2]

He died in 1793 in Cambridge, Massachusetts. A street in Cambridge is named after him. His nephew, judge Edmund Trowbridge Dana, was also named after him.[3] Both were buried at Old Burying Ground, Cambridge, Ma.
