Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of New York. John Hobart studied at the College of Philadelphia and Princeton before studying theology under Bishop William White at Philadelphia. He was ordained deacon in 1798 and priest in 1800. He was elected assistant bishop of New York in 1811 and served as bishop from 1816 to his death in 1830.
