Robert R. Livingston, 1718–75, was the grandson of Robert R. Livingston (1654–1728) by his son Robert. He became noted in New York as a Whig political leader, as a judge of the admiralty court (1759–63), and as a judge of the supreme court of the colony (1763–75); he was also a delegate to the Stamp Act Congress and chairman of the New York Committee of Correspondence.
