He was the son of Daniel D. Tompkins (1774–1825) and Hannah (Minthorne) Tompkins (1781–1829). He was born while his father was Governor of New York. He graduated from Union College in 1827.

He was a Jacksonian member of the New York State Assembly (New York Co.) in 1833 and 1834.

In November 1852 he ran on the Free Democratic ticket for Governor of New York, but was defeated by Democrat Horatio Seymour.
