Essex Junto

Essex Junto, group of New England merchants and lawyers, so called because many of them came from Essex co., Mass. They opposed the radicals in Massachusetts in the American Revolution and supported the Federalist faction of Alexander Hamilton. They later encouraged the disaffection of the Hartford Convention. Prominent among them were Timothy Pickering, George Cabot, and Theophilus Parsons.
