The Family Pen Summary

The Family Pen: Memorials, Biographical and Literary, of the Taylor Family of Ongar by Isaac Taylor

Isaac Taylor (1787-1865) was known as Isaac Taylor of Stanford Rivers, to distinguish him from his father, Isaac Taylor of Ongar, engraver and dissenting minister. He, his brother Jefferys, and their sisters Ann and Jane, were all writers, and their mother was the well-known 'Mrs Taylor of Ongar', some of whose books are also reissued in this series. The younger Isaac felt drawn to the Church of England, and made a name for himself with studies of the Church Fathers and the classics (he is said to have coined the word 'patristic'). This two-volume collection of writings by three generations of the Taylor family was compiled and published in 1867 by the Isaac Taylor of the next generation. Volume 1 contains Taylor of Stanford Rivers's 'Family Pen', an appreciation of him by his son, and his memoir of his sister Jane, a well-known writer for children.
