Governor Thomas McKean

1Buchanan, Roberdeau. Bayard, Thomas, McKean Family of Pennsylvania, Genealogy of the, Inquirer Printing Co., 1890. xiv, 273 p., Pages 13-15. "
1. THOMAS McKEAN.
THE subject of this biography1 was the son of William McKean and Letitia Finney, of Scotch-Irish ancestry. He
was born in New London township, Chester county, Pennsylvania, March 19, 1734, old style. After an elementary instruction in reading, writing and arithmetic, Thomas and his elder brother Robert were, at the ages of nine and eleven years respectively, placed under the tuition of the Rev. Francis Allison, D. D., a man of character and reputation.

STUDIES LAW.
  After passing through the regular course of instruction here, and acquiring a knowledge of the practical branches of mathematics, rhetoric, logic, and moral philosophy, Thomas went to Newcastle in Delaware, and entered the office of his relative David Finney, as a law student Some months after, he engaged as clerk to the prothonatory of the Court of Common Pleas; a situation which enabled him to learn the practice while he was studying the theory of the law.
  So great was the reputation that Mr. McKean acquired in his youth by his industry and talents, that before he had attained the age of twenty-one years, he was admitted (1754, J. Hill Martin, Bench and Bar of Philadelphia, 1883, and Penn. Mag.,v., 489.) as an attorney at law in the Courts of Common Pleas for the counties of Newcastle, Kent, and Sussex, and also in the Supreme Court. Before the expiration of a year he obtained a considerable share of business, and in May, 1855,1 was admitted to practice in the courts of his native county of Chester. He was
also admitted to the courts of the city and county of Philadelphia.

In 1756, the Attorney-general, who resided in Philadelphia, appointed him, not only without any solicitation,
but without any previous knowledge on his part, his deputy, to prosecute the pleas of the crown in the county of Sussex. He resigned this office after performing its duties for two years with judgment and ability. In 1758, 2 April 17, he was admitted to the bar of the Supreme Court of the province of Pennsylvania. The envy which the success of the young lawyer occasioned among his professional brethren, merely served as an additional spur to his industry, and increased his assiduity in the pursuit of legal knowledge ; for though he had become the eloquent advocate and able lawyer, he was still the close and industrious student.3 He afterwards went to England and studied at the Middle Temple, being admitted there May 9,1758.*
  As a recreation from his studies, in 1757, December 28, Mr, McKean enrolled himself with about one hundred and twenty five others in " Richard Williams' company of foot, whereof William Armstrong is colonel, in Newcastle county."5 In the same year he was elected clerk of the House of Assembly, an honor of which he was unapprised until he received information of his appointment from Benjamin Chew, at that time speaker. The following year he was again elected ; but after serving that term he declined further appointment. ' In 1762, he was selected by the legislature, together with Cagsar Rodney, to revise and print the laws passed subsequent to 1752 ; a duty which they speedily and satisfactorily executed.

THE ASSEMBLY OF DELAWARE.
  In the same year Mr. McKean first embarked in the stormy sea of politics, which he continued to brave for nearly half a century. In October, 1762, he was elected a member of the Assembly from the county of Newcastle, and was annually returned for seventeen successive years. So much attached to him were the people of that county, that they continued to elect him, although for the last six years of this time he was residing in Philadelphia. He still however retained his house in Newcastle, probably because his business frequently called him to that city. Finally, on the 1st of October, 1779, on the day of the general election in Delaware, he attended at Newcastle, and in an address to his constituents, declined the honor of further re-election. He was then waited upon by six gentlemen in the name of the electors, who asked him to name seven persons suitable for representatives. He replied that he knew not only seven, but seventy, whom he considered worthy of their votes : but the request being repeated, he acceded and wrote down seven names. The election resulted in the choice of the seven gentlemen whom he had named."
A thorough review of the service by Thomas McKean is reviewed in this text. It provides great insight into the political atmosphere that existed in the establishment of the United States of America. Source Image. Citation Image.
