Sarah Ann Jenyns (1865–1952)

The Life, Hardships and Successes of a Woman Who Designed a World-Acclaimed Corset and Forged a Company That Continued for Four Generations

This story started from convict grandfather and birth in Largs, NSW, to traveling from Sydney with her husband and five children to the coalfields in a gospel wagon. They eventually traveled to Brisbane and designed and patented what was to become a world-acclaimed corset. This is about the forging of a company that continued for four generations. They constructed a three-story building in 1917 in George Street, Brisbane, which is now Heritage listed. She traveled to China with her eldest daughter in early 1937 and then lost her to small pox. She got caught up in the invasion of China by Japan and finally returned to Brisbane in August 1938.

Sarah was inducted into the Queensland Business Leaders Hall of Fame in 2014. This is the life of Sarah Ann Jenyns.
