Lewis Morris. Born at Morrisania in 1671; married Isabella, daughter of James Graham, and removed to New Jersey, where he had large landed interests, and became a leading public character of that Province. After some years he returned to Morrisania and became a member of the Assembly of Westchester in 1710. In 1715 was commissioned Chief Justice of the Province of New York, and held this office until 1732 when he was displaced by Governor Cosby for political causes; at that time Judge Morris was the leading man in the liberal party. He went to England on a political mission in 1735 and returned the following year; he was subsequently Governor of New Jersey. He died in 1746.
