A native of Wilmington, Delaware and member of an influential Delaware family, Bayard was the son and father of United States senators. He himself studied law and was admitted to the Delaware bar in 1851. Aside from a brief stint (1853-1854) as United States District Attorney for Delaware and a sojourn to Philadelphia (1854-1858) to practice law there, Bayard was a lawyer in Wilmington until he was elected to the United States Senate in 1868.

Bayard would remain in the Senate until 1885.

President Grover Cleveland chose Bayard to be his Secretary of State during Cleveland's first term of office (1885-1889). When Cleveland returned to office in 1893, he appointed Bayard to another important diplomatic post: U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom. Bayard was the first person to hold this title (previous representatives to Britain were called "Minister"). His term was controversial, however, because while ambassador Bayard condemned the American policy of protectionism in trade, which he deemed "state socialism." Stephen Grover Cleveland (March 18, 1837 – June 24, 1908) was the 22nd (1885–1889) and 24th (1893–1897) President of the United States, and the only President to serve two non-consecutive terms. ...
