Thomas Aspinwall was born in Brookline, Massachusetts, May 23, 1786. Aspinwall received his early education at a local school, later attending the Leicester Academy from which he graduated at the age of fifteen. He entered Harvard College the same year (1801), graduating with honors in 1804. On completion of his formal education, Aspinwall entered the law office of William Sullivan, and subsequently became a partner. He later opened his own firm and continued in practice until the outbreak of the War of 1812, at which time he gave up his profession and tendered his services to the army. He received an honorable discharge on June 15, 1815. At the end of the war, Aspinwall was offered the position of inspector general; however, he preferred to return to civil service, and in May 1815, he was appointed consul to London by President James Madison. He held this office until his removal by President Franklin Pierce in 1853. Colonel Aspinwall died on August 11, 1876, at the age of ninety-one.
