KITTREDGE, Jonathan, temperance advocate, born in Canterbury, New Hampshire, 17 July, 1793; died in Concord, New Hampshire, 8 April, 1864. He was graduated at Dartmouth in 1813, read law in New York city, practised there seven years, and subsequently settling in Canaan, New Hampshire, represented that town in the legislature. From 1855 till 1859 he was chief justice of the court of common pleas, and in the latter year he removed to Concord, where he resided until his death. Dartmouth gave him the degree of LL.D. in 1858.
