She began piano studies at an early age with Friedrich Kalkbrenner in Paris, and in 1822 made her debut in Frankfurt am Main at a concert organized by Karl Friedrich Wilhelm Guhr. This was followed by a European tour the next year, including appearances in Paris and London, and later by additional tours. The concerto premiered in 1831 and Mendelssohn dedicated the work to her.
In 1833 Von Schauroth married English clergyman Edwin Hill-Handley and moved to London, but continued her concert appearances.
In 1870 Von Schauroth joined the General German Music Association as a composer. She died in Munich.
