From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Samuel Burr Sherwood (November 26, 1767 - April 27, 1833) was a U.S. Representative from Connecticut.

Born in Northfield Society (later Weston), Connecticut, Sherwood graduated from Yale College in 1786. He studied law, was admitted to the bar, and began practice in that part of Fairfield which is now Westport, Connecticut.

He served as member of the state House of Representatives from 1809 until 1815 and in the state Senate in 1816.

Sherwood was elected as a Federalist to the Fifteenth Congress (March 4, 1817-March 3, 1819).

He resumed the practice of his profession until 1831, when he retired from professional life. He died in Westport on April 27, 1833 and was interred in Evergreen Cemetery.
