Died: Apr. 25, 1878 - Old Catton, Norwich, England
From a strong Quaker background, Sewell was raised around horses for most of her early life. At the age of 14, she was injured and never fully recovered, having to use a crutch for the rest of her life. Her only novel, Black Beauty, is one of the world's most successful animal stories, although Sewell never really reaped any of the success as she died within months of its publication in 1877.
