1710, Nov 81768, Apr 9
an English author and sister of the novelist Henry Fielding. She wrote The Governess, or The Little Female Academy (1749), the first novel in English aimed specifically at children. In 1744, Fielding published a novel, The Adventures of David Simple. As was the habit, it was published anonymously. The novel was quite successful and gathered praise from contemporaries, including the publisher and novelist Samuel Richardson. Richardson, who was himself the target of Henry Fielding's satire, said that he thought Sarah and Henry were possessed of equal gifts of writing.
