Sarah Scudgell Wilkinson entry: Overview screen.
14 December 1779
SSW was born, according to her own account; she seems to have been baptised 'Sarah Carr Wilkinson'.
The publisher John Marshall
issued Midsummer Holydays; or, A Long Story
, an anonymous short novel "for the improvement and entertainment of young folk," which later allusive title-pages link with the name of SSW.
SSW reported that despite ill health and near destitution she had finished the manuscript of a three-volume novel to be entitled "The Baronet's Widow".
