Thomas Tillotson (1750 – May 5, 1832) was an American physician and politician.


Born in Maryland circa 1750, Tillotson received a thorough education, studied medicine, and practiced.[1] He was the great great nephew of the Archbishop of Canterbury John Tillotson. In 1776, he was commissioned as a First lieutenant in the Maryland Militia, and served during the American Revolutionary War.[1] He was appointed by Congress as a physician and surgeon general of the Northern Department of the Continental Army in 1780, and served until the close of the war.[1] Afterward, he settled in Rhinebeck, New York and engaged in the practice of medicine.[1]

In 1779, he married Margaret Livingston (1749–1823, sister of Chancellor Robert R. Livingston).[1] Their children included Robert, John, and Janette.[2]

A Federalist, he represented Dutchess County in the New York State Assembly in 1788.[1] In 1790, State Senator Anthony Hoffman died, and Tillotson was elected to fill the vacancy. He was a member of the State Senate from 1791 to 1799,[1] and served as a member of the Council of Appointment in 1791.[3]

He was elected as a Democratic-Republican to the 7th United States Congress in 1800, but resigned on August 10, 1801, before Congress met, to become Secretary of State of New York.[4] He remained in this office until March 15, 1806, and again from February 16, 1807 to February 1, 1808.[1]

He died in Rhinebeck on May 5, 1832 was buried in the Livingston family vault in the cemetery at the Dutch Reformed Church in Rhinebeck.[5]
