She was the wife of the first Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada, but also kept a diary and captured the early days of this country in her artwork. Plus, how often do you hear a talk about a person whose middle name is Posthuma?
This presentation by speaker Chris Mallion-Moore tells us the story of Elizabeth Simcoe, focusing on her journey from England to Upper and Lower Canada in the company of her husband, first Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada, John Graves Simcoe in the years 1791 to 1796. The diary she kept and illustrated provides a valuable impression of life in early Colonial Ontario and Quebec.
