Short biography
Susanna Strickland was the younger sister of authors Agnes Strickland and Catharine Parr Strickland (later Traill). She wrote her first children's book in 1822. Susanna was involved in the Anti-Slavery Society in London. In 1831, she married John Moodie, a retired officer of the Napoleonic Wars. The next year, the couple and their daughter emigrated to Canada, following sister Catharine Traill and her husband. The family settled on a farm in Douro township, near Lakefield, north of Peterborough, Upper Canada, where her brother Samuel worked as a surveyor. Susanna Moodie continued to write in Canada and her letters and journals contain valuable information about life in the colony.
