GARDINER, Addison, jurist, born in Rindge, New Hampshire, 19 March, 1797; died in Rochester, New York, 5 June, 1883. He was taken to Manlius, New York, in his early years, and received his education there. After studying law, he removed, in 1822, to Rochester, and was the first justice of the peace. He was appointed district attorney for Monroe County in 1825, and was afterward judge for the eighth circuit, comprising eight counties in western New York, but resigned in 1838, and resumed his practice in Rochester. In 1844 and 1846 he was lieutenant-governor of New York, but resigned his office in the latter year, having been elected a judge of the court of appeals. He served until 1855, declining a renomination. An appeal from his decisions, or a reversal of judgment, rarely occurred.
