Early life and career

Hale was born in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, the son of Samuel Hale and Mary Wright Hale. He attended the public schools. He moved to Dover, New Hampshire around 1765 to work with his older brother Samuel as a merchant, shipowner and shipbuilder.[1][2]

He served in the New Hampshire Senate from 1796-1800, and as member of the Governor's Council from 1803–1805.[3] Hale was elected as a Federalist to the Eleventh Congress serving from March 4, 1809 – March 3, 1811. He was reelected to serve in the Thirteenth Congress and Fourteenth Congress, and served from March 4, 1813 – March 3, 1817.[4]

Hale died in Dover on November 8, 1848, and is interred in Pine Hill Cemetery.
