English diarist who was the subject of a biography by Sir John Bickerton Williams, Memoirs of the life and character of Mrs Sarah Savage, eldest daughter of the Rev. Philip Henry (1818), which presented her as a godly nonconformist matron. She is of interest to scholars as a literate early modern woman with opinions on a variety of subjects.

Sarah's brother, Matthew Henry (1662-1714) was a noted Nonconformist minister and author. Her sister, Anne, was the subject of Williams' biography, Memoirs of Mrs. Hulton, one of the sisters of Mrs. Savage (1820).

Sarah Henry married John Savage, a farmer and land agent, on 28 March 1687.

A genealogy of Philip Henry's descendants, to 1844, was published by one of Sarah Savage's descendants, Sarah Lawrence of Leamington, a teacher who published writings for children and her own poems. One of Sarah Lawrence's great-nieces was Susan Lawrence (1871-1947), the Labour politician. The genealogy has been re-published.

Sarah Savage died at West Bromwich on 27 February 1752, aged 87.
