- James Barbour was born in Orange County on 10 June 1775 to Thomas Barbour & Mary Pendleton. Barbour studied law and was admitted to the bar in 1793 in Orange County. He was elected to the House of Delegates in 1798 serving until 1804, and again from 1807 to 1812. Barbour became Speaker of the House of Delegates from December 1809 until January 1812. He was defeated by George William Smith for the governorship in 1811, but was elected to succeed him on 3 January 1812 after Smith's death in the Richmond Theater fire. Barbour served three one-year terms as governor until 11 December 1814. His governorship was defined by his role in defending the Commonwealth from the British during the War of 1812. For nearly two years, Barbour directed a chiefly defensive war against the British paying particular attention to the defense of Norfolk. Barbour maintained close contact with the Secretary of War and militia commanders in filling the various requisitions for militia and making preparations for the defense of the state.
- Barbour was elected on 14 November 1814 to the United States Senate for the term commencing 4 March 1815. While in the Senate, Barbour acted as President pro tempore from 1817 to 1820, as well as Chairman of the Committee on Foreign Relations for the Fifteenth, Sixteenth, & Eighteenth Congresses. Barbour served as a senator until 7 March 1825 when he resigned in order to accept an appointment by John Quincy Adams as Secretary of War. Barbour again resigned on 26 May 1828 to become Minister of England until 23 September 1829. Barbour continued to remain active in politics serving as chairman of the 1831 convention of the National Republican Party and 1839 Whig Party convention.
