Rural poems with other fugitive pieces


Sarah Weymouth

London, G.B. Whittacker; Devonport: R Williams (1827). 115 pp.

Transcribed by Michael Steer

The author, Miss Sarah Weymouth (1802-26), lived at Collaton, near Kingsbridge. Collaton, now Collaton St Mary, is on the road from Paignton to Totnes. This small book of romantic poems was printed as a tribute from her friends. She was "an ardent admirer of the beauties of nature", one whose life, we are informed was spent in "semi-rural retirement", and who died of consumption (TB) at the age of 24. The 12 Weymouth's listed as subscribers to the volume indicate that she came from a relatively large family, several of whom were professionals. This rare and much sought-after book was produced digitally from a copy held in the Bodleian Library collection that can be downloaded from, with a search by either author or title. Google has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries. These books, on which copyright has expired, are available for free educational and research use, both as individual books and as full collections to aid researchers.
