Author: Jane Euphemia Saxby

Saxby, Jane Euphemia, née Browne, daughter of William Browne of Tallantire Hall, Cumberland, and sister of Lady Teignmouth, was born Jan. 27, 1811, and married, in 1862, to the Rev. S. H. Saxby, Vicar of East Clevedon, Somersetshire. Her work, The Dove on the Cross, was published in 1849. It has passed into numerous editions, and from it several hymns have come into common use. This was followed by The Voice of the Bird, in 1875; and Aunt Effie’s Gift to the Nursery, 1876. Sometimes Mrs. Saxby's Dove on the Cross is dated 1819, but in error. The compilation known as Hymns and Thoughts for the Sick and Lonely, by a Lady, London, J Nisbet & Co., 1848, although it contains several of her hymns in an altered form, is ascribed to her in error… Go to person page >
