Executive summary: Astronomer, sister of William English though German-born astronomer, sister of Sir William Herschel King George III , she became his constant assistant in his observations, and also executed the laborious calculations which were connected with them. For these services she received from the king in 1787 a salary of £5O a year. Her chief amusement during her leisure hours was sweeping the heavens with a small Newtonian telescope. By this means she detected in 1783 three remarkable nebulae, and during the eleven years 1786-97 eight comets, five of them with unquestioned priority. In 1797 she presented to the Royal Society an Index to John Flamsteed 's observations, together with a catalogue of 561 stars accidentally omitted from the "British Catalogue", and a list of the errata in that publication. Though she returned to Hanover in 1822 she did not abandon her astronomical studies, and in 1828 she completed the reduction, to January 1800, of 2500 nebulae discovered by her brother. In 1828 the Astronomical Society, to mark their sense of the benefits conferred on science by such a series of laborious exertions, unanimously resolved to present her with their gold medal, and in 1835 elected her an honorary member of the society. In 1846 she received a gold medal from the king of Prussia. She died on the 9th of January 1848.

Caroline Herschel
Caroline Herschel was born in Hannover, Germany, in 1750. She became the first noted woman Astronomer. Her work was mainly to assist her brother, Sir William Herschel, another famous astronomer, in his work. On her own though, she discovered her first comet in 1786, with the discovery of seven more comets coming in the years following. In the year 1828, Caroline Herschel was presented with a gold medal from the Royal Astronomical Society of Great Britain for her work dealing with the cataloguing of the observations and discoveries done by her older brother, Sir William Herschel. Caroline Herschel died in 1848 after discovering many nebulae also, including the nebula that is associated with the Andromeda galaxy. Information Back to Biography Menu

The University of Houston's College of Engineering presents this series about the machines that make our civilization run, and the people whose ingenuity created them. W illiam and Caroline Herschel were brother and sister, born in 1738 and 1750 in Hanover. Both were trained as musicians, and William moved to England when he was 19 to find work as an organist. Caroline's father assured her that she was was not pretty enough to marry, and her mother discouraged her bookishness. Her brother rescued her from all that in 1772 and brought her to England, where he'd become a well-established musician. William turned her loose to study, and study she did. She learned English, more music, mathematics and accounting, and together they studied astronomy. William also forced her to learn the artifices of English society. She complained that English flower shows were: a subject on which the wondrous female mind ... for months before and after, is absorbed in ecstatic contemplation.

The first of the Herschel family to devote himself to searching the heavens, was also the most successful. The son of a military musician in the small dukedom of Hannover, he was a talented and successful musician in his own right. He had already joined the army band in his teens. At the time Hannover was part of the British Empire, and during the Seven-Year War between France and England it was occupied by the French. In 1757 William and one of his brothers fled from the war, escaping to England. William stayed in England, and his brother returned to continental Europe. William Frederick Herschel

Caroline Herschel
Wow! Caroline Herschel was the first woman to discover a comet Caroline Herschel was born on March 16, 1750 in Hanover, Germany. Her father Isaac was a talented musician. Isaac Herschel encouraged all six of his children to train in mathematics, French and music. Caroline's mother did not see the need for a girl to become educated and preferred to make Caroline a house servant to the rest of the family. At the age of ten Caroline was stricken with typhus. The disease permanently stunted her growth. Her parents concluded that she would never marry but would live her life as an old maid. Caroline remained in her parents' home until, at the age of twenty-two, her brother, William took her to live with him in Bath, England. Caroline became her brother's housekeeper. William was an accomplished musician and a conductor. He gave Caroline voice lessons and trained her in mathematics as well. Caroline became a well known soprano and began to sing professionally. William's hobby was astronomy and he devoted most of his free time to making more and more powerful telescopes with which to look deeper into space.

Caroline Herschel was the daughter of Isaac Herschel and Anna Ilse Moritzen. She was sister of William Herschel and the aunt of John Herschel . Caroline's father Isaac was an oboist in the Hanovarian Foot Guards and rose to become the bandmaster. Although a man with no formal education, he tried hard to give his four sons and two daughters a good education. His interests in music, philosophy and astronomy led to lively conversations in their home but Caroline's mother disapproved of learning in general and although she reluctantly accepted that her four sons should have some education, she strongly opposed her daughters doing anything other than the household chores. Caroline Herschel's four brothers were all brought up to be musicians while Caroline showed an enthusiasm for knowledge which her father tried to satisfy despite all her mother's efforts to ensure that she did nothing but household tasks. Caroline recalled that her father took her [4]:- ... on a clear frosty night into the street, to make me acquainted with several of the beautiful constellations, after we had been gazing at a comet which was then visible.

    Caroline Lucretia Herschel Caroline was born in Hannover, Germany on 1750 March 16, and was ultimately one of 10 children. At the age of 10 she was struck with typhus, which subsequently stunted her growth. She never grew taller than 4' 3" and remained frail throughout her life. Her father once told her she would never marry because of her looks and because she was not rich. In addition, primarily because of the times, her mother resisted giving her an education, saying that it was Caroline's duty to take care of her brothers. Despite all of this, Caroline's father secretly educated her and she ultimately displayed musical talent, as well as a gift for mathematics.
    Music was an important part of life for the Herschel family. Caroline's father was a military musician and her older brothers, William and Alexander, as well as Caroline, showed exceptional talent.
    Shortly after the beginning of the Seven Years' War, Hannover slipped into the hands of the French in 1757. Caroline was then 7 years of age and her 19-year-old brother William escaped to England where he became a music teacher. Sometime later he was joined by Alexander and they frequently performed as musicians.
    William moved to Bath, England in 1766 and became organist and choir master at the Octagon Chapel. In 1772, he asked Caroline to come to Bath and she subsequently trained as a singer. Despite her fraility, she was a soprano and gave many successful performances, among which were solo parts in the Messiah and Judas Maccabeus.

    HERSCHEL; Caroline L.; 1750-1848; HOL/GBR After a childhood similar to a typical women's childhood of this period, she left without regret the houseworks of Holland to join her brother William in the UK in 1772. A common image describes Caroline, lightened by a candle, writing down the observations that her brother cried out from outside the house standing at his telescopes (Georges III gave her a 50 pounds grant per year for the help she provided). Unsatisfied with only assisting her brother, she observed herself from 1782 and discovered 8 comets, observed about 100 deep sky objects and discovered 14 new nebulae.
