Doudney, Sarah

SARAH DOUDNEY (1841–1926) was born in Portsmouth, England. Her family ran a large candle/soap business. The household had a strong protestant ethic.  She grew up in rural areas and went to Madame Dowell's College. Unencumbered with a husband or family she wrote abundantly, starting from an early age,  novels, poetry, hymns and stories. She wrote the hymn, "Sleep on Beloved," sung at Charles Spurgeon's funeral.
