The Edward Livingston Papers document the career of American lawyer, diplomat,
statesman, and legal theorist Edward Livingston. The collection also contains
domestic, financial, and property records of some three dozen others, mostly members
of the Livingston/Beekman branch of the Hudson River Valley Livingstons and the
Montgomery, Davezac, Barton, and Hunt families; the family surveyor/agent John Cox,
Jr.; and an Albany-area merchant Benjamin French, whose forfeited estate ended up in
Edward Livingston's hands for debt collection.
