Garnett was the sixth daughter of lawyer David Black (1817-1892) and Clara Maria Patten (1825-1875). His brother is mathematician Artur Black. In 1873, his father became paralyzed and two years later his mother died of a heart attack trying to take her husband to bed.

In the late 1920s, Garnett was often sick and short of sight. He stopped translating in 1934.
