 Her father was a British Indian Army officer and diplomat, remembered primarily for his role as Sir Winston Churchill's chief military assistant during the Second World War and his service as the first Secretary General of NATO from 1952 to 1957.

In her late teens she met the then Hon 'Wenty' Beaumont, the ADC to the Viceroy of India, Lord Mountbatten, [her father was Mountbatten's chief of staff], and in August 1947, she and her future husband accompanied the Viceregal party to Simla on holiday. The young couple then left by train to return to Delhi, thence to make their way back to England.

According to Lord Ismay's vivid memoir: "When they boarded the train, Wenty's Muslim servant showed signs of panic and was given permission to travel in their carriage. Nothing unusual happened until, at Sonepat station, about 20 miles from Delhi, a bomb was exploded on the platform. This was apparently the preconcerted signal for a general attack on all Muslim passengers. Men, women and children were pulled out of the train by their Hindu fellow travellers and butchered in the most brutal manner. "At this point, Wenty hid the servant under the seat and piled suitcases in front of him. A little later, two well-dressed and seemingly well-educated Hindus presented themselves at the door of his carriage and demanded the right to search for a Muslim who was believed to be with them. Wenty indignantly refused, and the intruders took themselves off. "Maybe they were impressed by Wenty's ADC arm-band, or by the two revolvers which 19 year-old Sarah and Wenty Beaumont were flourishing. The servant, who had fainted from fright and kept a deathly silence, was the only Muslim to arrive at Delhi." 

Sarah Ismay married the Hon Wentworth Beaumont, 11 February, 1948. The ceremony took place at St Margaret's, Westminster. The Queen [later Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, a kinswoman of the Beaumonts], Princess Elizabeth and Princess Margaret attended.
