Jonathan Sewall

1729 – 1796


Jonathan Sewall was the last Attorney General of Massachusetts before the American Revolution. 


His life is the subject of a biography by Carol Berkin.  I had difficulty obtaining a copy of Professor Berkin's book, and eventually borrowed a copy on an interlibrary loan.  It now appears that it was reprinted in 1988 and again in 2000.  For the most recent reprint, please visit, and search for either "Jonathan Sewall" or ISBN 0595000207


Jonathan Sewall was my great X 4 grandfather, see Jonathan Sewall for further details.
