List of members of the United States House of Representatives in the 31st Congress by seniority

This is a complete list of members of the United States House of Representatives during the 31st United States Congress listed by seniority.

As an historical article, the districts and party affiliations listed reflect those during the 31st Congress (March 4, 1849 – March 3, 1851). Current seats and party affiliations on the List of current members of the United States House of Representatives by seniority will be different for certain members.Seniority depends on the date on which members were sworn into office.
