He was sent to Harrow School in September 1753 and then went on to University College, Oxford. He graduated there in 1768 and became M. In 1770, Jones joined the Middle Temple and studied law for three years, a preliminary to his life-work in India. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society on 30 April 1772. Jones was a radical political thinker, a friend of American independence.
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. Jones is known today for making and propagating the observation about genetic relation between the Indo-European languages. This common source came to be known as Proto-Indo-European. Jones was the first to propose a racial division of India involving an Aryan invasion but at that time there was insufficient evidence to support it.
It was an idea later taken up by British administrators such as Herbert Hope Risley but remains disputed today. Jones also propounded theories that might appear peculiar today but were less so in his time. For example, he believed that Egyptian priests had migrated and settled down in India in prehistoric times. He also posited that the Chinese were originally Hindus belonging to the Kshatriya caste. In 1763, at the age of 17, Jones wrote the poem Caissa, based on a 658-line poem called „Scacchia, Ludus“ published in 1527 by Marco Girolamo Vida, giving a mythical origin of chess that has become well known in the chess world. This poem he wrote in English. In the poem the nymph Caissa initially repels the advances of Mars, the god of war.
Spurned, Mars seeks the aid of the god of sport, who creates the game of chess as a gift for Mars to win Caissa’s favour. Mars wins her over with the game. Caissa has since been characterised as the „goddess“ of chess, her name being used in several contexts in modern chess playing. Schopenhauer used Jones’s authority to relate the basic principle of his philosophy to what was, according to Jones, the most important underlying proposition of Vedânta. He made more passing reference to Sir William Jones’s writings elsewhere in his works.
Edgar Allan Poe’s short story „Berenice“ starts with a motto, the first half of a poem, by Ibn Zaiat: Dicebant mihi sodales si sepulchrum amicae visitarem, curas meas aliquantulum fore levatas. Dixi autem, an ideo aliud praeter hoc pectus habet sepulchrum? My companions said to me, if I would visit the grave of my friend, I might somewhat alleviate my worries. I answered „could she be buried elsewhere than in my heart?
