The Supreme Court orginally had 6 members from 1789 to 1807. The court gained a member (7 members) in 1807. Then it gained an 8th and 9th member in 1837. A 10th member was added in 1863. But in 1866, Congress passed a law declaring that the next three justices to retire won't be replaced. One justice (Justice Catron) retired in 1866 and another (Justice Wayne) retired in 1867. But in 1869, a law was passed adding a 9th Supreme Court seat, that was filled in 1870. This size has remained since 1869.
