Home Town of Author Susanna Moodie

picture of susanna moodie


Susanna Moodie, née Strickland, sister of Catharine Parr Traill, was an author who wrote about her experiences as a settler in Canada, which was a British colony at the time.

In 1832, Moodie with her husband and daughter immigrated from Suffolk, England to Upper Canada. The family settled on a farm in Douro Township, near Lakefield.

Her increasingly highly regarded book, Roughing it in the Bush (1852), detailing her experiences on the farm in the 1830s, have made her a legendary figure in Canada.

You can find the sign on the place of Susanna Moodie farm at the beginning of Moodie Drive if you turn the right from Stenner Drive.

Moodie’s books and poetry inspired Margaret Atwood’s collection of poetry, The Journals of Susanna Moodie, published in 1970.
