Susannah Dobson was a later eighteenth-century medieval scholar, translator, and populariser of historical knowledge.
Milestones
Susannah Dawson (later Dobson) was born, probably in London; the date is not known, though from the date of her marriage it was probably before, perhaps long before, 1740.
8 February 1775 SD dated the dedication of The Life of Petrarch to Soame Jenyns; the book was published the same year. Bibliographic Citation link.
30 September 1795 SD died in London after a decade of widowhood. Bibliographic Citation link.
Probably later 1795 Historical Anecdotes of Heraldry and Chivalry was published at Worcester: an original work of scholarship, it was almost certainly authored by SD and very likely appeared posthumously. Bibliographic Citation link.
