DAVID S. BOARDMAN, native of the town of New-Milford, was graduated at Yale-College, in 1793; pursued his legal studies under Judge Reeve, until March 1795, when he was admitted to the Bar of Litchfield county; and having settled in his profession in his native town, pursued the practice of law there, until May, 1831; when he gave up the practice, on being appointed Chief Judge of the County Court. This office he held for five years.

On the death of Mr. Everitt, in 1805, he was appointed Judge of Probate for the district of New-Milford, to which office he was re-appointed for sixteen years in succession. He was elected eight times a member of the General Assembly, viz. in October, 1812, May, 1813, Oct. 1813, Oct. 1814, and May, 1815, and again in the years 1827, 1828, and 1829.
