Austin, Mrs. Sarah Taylor, married John Austin in 1820. She inherited the natural talents of the Taylor family of Norwich to which she belonged. Her translations of Ranke's History of the Popes, Falk's Characteristics of Goethe, and other standard German books won deserved popularity. Her Germany from 1760 to 1814, though less known, contains much valuable matter. She wrote also on educational subjects, and edited the Memoirs of Sidney Smith, and the Letters from Egypt of her gifted daughter, Lady Duff Gordon, besides supervising several editions of her husband's works. She died at Weybridge in 1867.
