A native of Littleton, New Hampshire, he graduated from Dartmouth College in 1887 and Harvard Law School in 1891. He began his legal practice with his father, George Azro Bingham (later a judge of the New Hampshire Supreme Court) in Littleton. George H. Bingham was also the grandson of Andrew S. Woods, a Chief Justice of the New Hampshire Supreme Court.

After the elder George A. Bingham died in 1895; his son continued the law practice at Littleton. Soon he moved to Manchester, where he went into law practice with David A. Taggart. The two men were law partners from 1889 to 1901. Bingham then became Associate Justice of the New Hampshire Supreme Court, holding that position from 1902 to 1913. On May 15, 1913, President Woodrow Wilson nominated Bingham as a Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, to a seat vacated by LeBaron Bradford Colt. He was confirmed by the United States Senate on June 5, 1913, and served as an active judge of the First Circuit from 1913 to 1939. He assumed senior status on March 23, 1939 but remained a member of the court until his death in Manchester ten years later.
