Sir William Jones(28 September 1746 – 27 April 1794) was an Anglo-Welsh Philologist, a puisne judge in theSupreme Court of Judicature at Fort William in Bengal and a scholar of ancientIndia particularly known for his proposition of the existence of a close relationship of sorts among theIndo-European languages. He, along with Henry Thomas ColebrookeandNathaniel Halhead founded the Asiatic Society of Bengalin 1784, and started a journal calledAsiatic Researches. William Jones was born in London at Beaufort Buildings,Westminister; his father (also namedWilliam Jones) was a mathematician from Anglesey in Wales, noted for devising the use of the symbol pi. The young William Jones was a linguistic prodigy, learning Greek, Latin, Persian, Arabic and Urdu and the basics of Chinese writing at an early age. By the end of his life he knew thirteen languages thoroughly and another twenty-eight reasonably well, making him ahyperpolyglot. Jones' father died when he was aged three. His mother Mary Nix Jones raised him. Jones attendedHarrowin September 1753 and then went on to Oxford University. He graduated from University College, Oxfordin 1768 and became M.A. in 1773. Too poor, even with his award, to pay the fees, he gained a job tutoring the seven-year-old Lord Althrop son ofEarl Spencer He embarked on a career as a tutor and translator for the next six years. During this time he publishedHistoire de Nader Chah(1770), a French translation of a work originally written in Persian byMirza Mehdi Khan Astarabadi. This was done at the request of King Christian VIII of Denmark,who had visited Jones – who by the age of 24 had already acquired a reputation as anOrientalist. This would be the first of numerous works on Persia Turkey and the Middle East in general. In 1770, he joined the Middle Templeand studied law for three years, which would eventually lead him to his life-work in India. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society on 30 April 1772. After a spell as a Circuit Judgein Wales, and a fruitless attempt to resolve the issues of the American Coloniesin concert with Benjamin Franklinin Paris, he was appointed puisne judgeto the Supreme Court of Judicature at Fort William in Bengalon 4 March 1783, and on 20 March he was knighted. In April 1783 he married Anna Maria Shipley, the eldest daughter of Dr Jonathan Shipley, Bishop of Landaffand Bishop of St Asaph. Anna Maria used her artistic skills to help Jones document life in India. On 25 September 1783 he arrived in Calcutta. Jones was a radical political thinker, a friend of American independence. His workThe principles of government; in a dialogue between a scholar and a peasant: printed and distributed gratis by the Society for Constitutional Information, 1783 was the subject of a trial for seditious libel after it was reprinted by his brother-in-law William Shipley. In the Subcontinent he was entranced by Indian Culture, an as-yet untouched field in European scholarship, and on 15 January 1784 he founded the Asiatic Society in Bengal. Over the next ten years he would produce a flood of works on India, launching the modern study of the subcontinent in virtually every social science. He also wrote on the local laws, music, literature, botany, and geography, and made the first English translations of several important works of Indian literature. He died in Calcutta on 27 April 1794 at the age of 47 and is buried in South Park Street Cemetery.
