Emily Taylor (born 17 April 1795 in New Buckenham, Norfolk; died circa February 1872 in St Pancras, London) was an English author, poet and hymnwriter.
She was the sister of Edgar Taylor, also a writer and translator, from a Norfolk family. In 1825 she published The Vision of Las Casas, and Other Poems. The title poem, about a vision of the dying Bartolomé de las Casas, has an anti-slavery theme. Las Casas' vision ends with his being granted a prophetic glimpse of the abolitionist movement in Taylor's own time, with specific mention of Thomas Clarkson and William Wilberforce. Taylor wrote numerous historical tales, works of instruction for children, and popular biographies; she was also the writer of many hymns. Her works appeared in the Monthly Repository, amongst other publications.
Originally a dissenter, she joined the Church of England under the influence of English theologian Frederick Denison Maurice.
