Sault Ste. Marie in Algoma District, Ontario — Central Canada
Born in Dublin, Ireland, and raised in London, this famous 19th century author, illustrator and social reformer joined her husband, Robert Jameson, Attorney General of Upper Canada, at Toronto in 1836. The following June, unescorted, Mrs. Jameson travelled to Port Talbot, Detroit, and Mackinaw. From there she journeyed by bateau to Sault Ste. Marie, descended the rapids, and attended an Indian Assembly at Manitoulin. She travelled on to Toronto by way of Georgian Bay and Lake Simcoe. Upon her return to England in 1838, Mrs. Jameson published an account of her tour entitled 'Winter Studies and Summer Rambles in Canada'. This book became an invaluable historical source for the life and personalities of the period. Thereafter Mrs. Jameson devoted much time to social and educational reform for English women.
