Biography

Sarah Taylor Austin was an English editor, linguist and translator from German.

Born in 1793 in Norwich, England, Sarah was christened April 25, 1793, at Octagon Chapel.[1]She was the youngest child of John Taylor, a yarn maker and Unitarian hymn writer, and Susannah Cook, who taught her daughter Latin, French, German and Italian. In 1819, she married John Austin,[2] a law professor who wrote on the subject of jurisprudence. They had one child, Lucie.[3] Lucie, Lady Duff-Gordon, followed in her mother's footsteps and became an author and translator. Sarah edited her daughter's book, Lady Duff-Gordon's Letters from Egypt (1865). Her granddaughter, Janet Ross, wrote Three Generations of English Women (1893) about Susannah, Sarah and Lucie.

"She was a handsome, gregarious, social being who, in addition to being England's premier German translator who helped introduce the British public to ideas emerging from Germany, not only supported her husband during his life, but made his reputation after his death."[4]

Sarah died August 8, 1867, at her home in Weybridge, Sussex.[5][6]
