Henry Dilworth Gilpin was an American lawyer and statesman of Quaker extraction who served as Attorney General of the United States. He was the son of Joshua Gilpin and Mary Dilworth, and was born in Lancaster, England, just before his parents returned to America. His father had been on extended tour of Britain and Europe, lasting from 1795-1801, during which he obtained information about the new manufacturing methods used in paper-making for his family paper mills on Brandywine Creek, in Delaware. His mother was from the Quaker Dilworths of Lancaster, England. The family returned to England for another tour in 1812, and returned to the United States in about 1816, during which time Henry attended school near London. After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania, he studied law with Joseph R. Ingersoll and was admitted to the bar in 1822
