Joseph Hopkinson, the son of Francis Hopkinson (1737-1791) and Ann Borden, was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on November 12, 1770. Hopkinson graduated from the College of Philadelphia (now the University of Pennsylvania) in 1786. Following his admittance to the bar in 1791, he briefly practiced law in Easton before returning to Philadelphia, where he participated in several high-profile trials. Hopkinson was elected as a Federalist to the United States House of Representatives between 1815 and 1819, and practiced law in Bordentown, New Jersey, between 1820 and 1822, during which time he served as a member of the New Jersey General Assembly. In 1828, he was appointed a federal judge for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, a position he held until his death in Philadelphia on January 15, 1842. He and his wife, Emily Mifflin, had nine children.
