Born in Fayetteville, North Carolina, he was the youngest of three children born to Thomas, a merchant, and Catherine Eleanor (Raboteau) Fuller. After his father's premature death, Fuller's mother moved the family to Louisburg, where her husband was originally from. Fuller attended the University of North Carolina from 1849 to 1851 and later returned to Fayetteville and established a law practice there with his brother Bartholomew.

In 1890, President Benjamin Harrison appointed Fuller as a justice of the United States Court of Private Land Claims.
