Julie Pfannenschmidt was born Julie Burrow in Kydullen in Preußen. She completed her education in 1819. While in Danzig Pfannenschmidt met a building administrator who she married the following January 1931 and moved to Neufahrwasser. After being dislocated again to Driesen Pfannenschmidt became acquainted with a professor Wilhelm Kluz who motivated her to become a writer.
Her motivation increased as her children finished their educations. In Züllichau her husband lost his position due to his political assertions and they were again forced to move. After a few months they moved to Bromberg. Here in 1850 Pfannenschmidt published her first two par novel Frauen-Lo. In 1850 Pfannenschmidt passed away from a stroke. In Pfannenschmidt’s novels she often explores the topic of the middle class and lives of people in small towns. She focused particularly on the role of women in small-town families.
