Henry Walter Livingston (1768 – December 22, 1810) was a United States Representative from the state of New York and son of Continental Congressman Walter Livingston.

Livingston was born in Livingston, Columbia County, New York. He graduated from Yale College in 1786, studied law, was admitted to the bar and commenced practice in New York City. From 1792 to 1794 he was private secretary to Gouverneur Morris, who was then United States Minister Plenipotentiary to France in Paris.

Livingston was then judge of the Court of Common Pleas of Columbia County. He was a member of the New York State Assembly in 1802 and again in 1810, and was elected as a Federalist to the 8th and 9th Congresses, holding office from March 4, 1803 to March 3, 1807. He died near Linlithgo. His home at Livingston in Columbia County, New York, known as the Henry W. Livingston House, was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1971.[1]
