Ellis Gray Loring was the son of James Tyng Loring and Relief Faxon. In one place his birth is given as April 14, 1802 and in another place as April 14, 1803. His father was a member of the Boston Light Infantry. He was a druggist by trade.

The following quotation is from the Loring Genealogy :

"Ellis Gray Loring, born in Boston, April 14, 1803; married October 29, 1827, Louisa Gilman, daughter of Frederick Gilman and Abigail Gilman, born at Gloucester, January 1, 1797, died May 25, 1868.

"He entered Harvard College in 1819 - but was not graduated, though a member of the Hasty Pudding Club and the Phi Beta Kappa Society. The following extract from the College faculty explains this matter: 'June 27, 1824. Loring who left college in May, 1823, at a time a large part of the class was dismissed for resistance of college authority, applies for his degree. - Voted, that Loring's request be not granted, as the Govt. cannot make any distinction between his case and that portion of his class who were dismissed in May, 1823.'

"He studied law and was admitted to the bar in 1827. He was Counselor-at-law, master in chancery, and solicitor for the Western Railroad Company. Was one of the early 'abolitionists'. In 1836 he secured the release of the girl 'Med' who had escaped from slavery and was brought before the courts. Whittier wrote a poem about him, after his death, May 24, 1858.
