Taylor, Philip Meadows, 1779-1868. Anglo-Irish business man, writer, and country gentleman; father of Capt. Philip Meadows Taylor (1808-1876). Finkelstein, VPR 23 (1990), 64-65, correctly identifies Meadows Taylor sr.'s articles (mistakenly attributed to the son in Wellesley) but then confuses him with his father, the Rev. Philip Taylor (1747-1831). See P. Meadows Taylor sr. to Sir Robert Peel, 5 May 1845 (BL Add.Ms. 40,566, ff.116-7); ODNB on the Rev. Philip Taylor and Capt. Philip Meadows Taylor. (To confuse matters further, there were other Philip Meadows Taylors of various degrees of cousinship.) ?? father, Philip Meadows Taylor (1779-1868), who in letters to Richard Bentley between 3 Aug. 1839 and 5 March 1840 identifies himself as P. McTeague and as the father of Philip Meadows Taylor (1808-1876) ?? Philip Meadows Taylor (September 25, 1808 –-May 13, 1876), an Anglo-Indian administrator and novelist, was born in Liverpool, England. At the age of fifteen he was sent out to India to become a clerk to a Bombay merchant. On his arrival the house was in financial difficulties, and he was glad to accept in 1824 a commission in the service of his highness the Nizam, to which service he remained devotedly attached throughout his long career. He was speedily transferred from military duty to a civil appointment, and in this capacity he acquired a knowledge of the languages and the people of Southern India which has seldom been equalled. He studied the laws, the geology, the antiquities of the country; he was alternately judge, engineer, artist and man of letters, for on his return to England in 1840 on furlough he published the first of his Indian novels, Confessions of a Thug, in which he reproduced the scenes which he had heard about the Thuggee cult, described by the chief actors in them. This book was followed by a series of tales, Tippoo Sultaun (1840), Tara (1863), Ralph Darnell (1865), Seeta (1872), and A Noble Queen (1878), all illustrating periods of Indian history and society, and giving a prominent place to the native character, for which and the native institutions and traditions he had a great regard and respect. Seeta in particular was remarkable for its sympathetic and romantic portrayal of the marriage between a British civil servant and a Hindu widow just before the Indian Mutiny. Taylor himself had married Mary Palmer, the Eurasian grand-daughter of William Palmer, the East India Company's Resident at Hyderabad (who had married "one of the Princesses of the Royal House of Delhi") [1]. Returning to India he acted from 1840 to 1853 as correspondent for The Times. He also wrote a Student's Manual of the History of India (1870). About 1850, Meadows Taylor was appointed by the Nizam's government to administer, during a long minority, the principality of the young raja of Shorapore. He succeeded without any European assistance in raising this small territory to a high degree of prosperity, and such was his influence with the natives that on the occurrence of the mutiny in Bengal he held his ground without military support. Colonel Taylor, whose merits were now recognized and acknowledged by the British government of India – although he had never been in the service of the Company – was subsequently appointed to the deputy commissioner-ship of the Western ceded districts, where he succeeded in establishing a new assessment of revenues at once more equitable to the cultivators and more productive to the government. By indefatigable perseverance he had raised himself from the condition of a half-educated lad, without patronage, and without even the support of the Company, to the successful government of some of the most important provinces of India, 36,000 square miles in extent and with a population of more than five millions. On his retirement from service in 1860 he was made a C.S.I, and given a pension. Taylor died at Menton on 13 May 1876. See Meadows Taylor's The Story of My Life (1877).

He belonged to the Unitarian community, and went to a school kept at Palgrave, Suffolk, by Rochemont Barbauld, husband of Anna Letitia Barbauld, where Frank Sayers (1763-1817) was among his schoolmates . He travelled on the Continent for some years to perfect himself in foreign languages . William Taylor and his father were both in sympathy with the French Revolution, and belonged to a " revolution society " at Norwich . In 1791 the disturbed condition of affairs induced the elder Taylor to wind up his business, and from this time William devoted himself to letters . He was an enthusiast for poetry, and did great service to English literature by translations of Burger's Lenore (1790, printed 1796), of Lessing's Nathan the Wise (1790, printed 1805), of Goethe's Iphigenia in Tauris (1790, printed 1793), and of four of Wieland's Dialogues of the Gods (1795) . He was a prolific writer of review articles, in which his knowledge of foreign literature served as a useful standard of criticism . Much of this material was made use of in his most important work, his Historic Survey of German Poetry (3 vols., 1828-30) . He also edited the works of his friend Sayers with a memoir (1823) . He died at Norwich on the 5th of March 1836 . See a Memoir of the late W . Taylor of Norwich, by John Warden Robberds (2 vols., 1843) ; Georg Herzfeld, William Taylor von Norwich (1897) . Taylor is well known to readers of George Borrow by the portrait of him as the " elder individual " in the chapter of Lavengro . -------------- related to?? Dr Philip Meadows Martineau (1752-1829),
