The Wonderful Adventures of Mary Seacole in Many Lands

This talk will examine the extraordinary life of Victorian heroine Mary Seacole.


This talk will examine the extraordinary life of Victorian heroine Mary Seacole. Widely travelled, Seacole was born in Jamaica but lived in Central America and Britain before applying to join Nightingale’s group of nurses sent to the Crimean war. Refused by committee to join Nightingale – possibly because of her mixed-race heritage – Seacole funded her own trip to the Crimea. There, she ran the British Hotel, where she sold food and other necessary items, and healed the soldiers using her own herbal remedies. Loved by the soldiers there, she become known as ‘Mother Seacole.’ All of these dramatic exploits are described in her bestselling book, The Wonderful Adventures of Mary Seacole in Many Lands.
A short, illustrated talk by Nick Ragland.
