Sarah Ann Turner was born in 1840 at Heckington in Lincolnshire, daughter of Naomi Turner, formerly Hardstaff, and her husband Edward Turner, a farmer. She was the eldest of the couple's six daughters. The 1841 census finds her living with her parents at Heckington Fen, next door to her maternal grandparents.

In 1850, Sarah's mother Naomi died aged 31. Sarah and her siblings were thereafter brought up by their father alone. None of them had been baptised as babies - they were all baptised on the same day in 1854, by which time Sarah was thirteen years old. She has yet to be researched after her baptism.
