1. Sarah Curran playing the harp (c.1805). William Beechey (English, 1753-1839). Bankfield Museum, Yorkshire.

    Sarah Curran (1782-1808), the youngest daughter of John Philpot Curran, an eminent Irish lawyer, was the great love of Irish nationalist Robert Emmet. When her father discovered that Sarah was engaged, he disowned her and then treated her so harshly that she had to take refuge with friends in Cork, married Robert Sturgeon, had a child which died in infancy, and died of consumption in 1808.
