Isabella Valancy Crawford

An Irish-born Canadian writer and poet, Isabella Crawford was one of the first Canadians to make a living as a freelance writer. Though her life was marked with tragedy and poverty, Isabella had the opportunity to be introduced to writing in the home of the Strickland family who had taken Isabella and her relatives in to live with them out of charity. Being close friends with the Strickland’s daughter, a writer, Isabella began the journey of writing. Isabella’s first poem was published in 1873 and was followed by many more until her literary earnings were enough to support her mother, sister, and herself. Upon moving to Toronto, Isabella focused more seriously on her writing and contributed a number of her writings to New York and Toronto publications. Isabella became the first local writer to have a novel in 1886 and also published one book in her lifetime. Isabella’s poetry has lived on even after her time, and her writing and legacy have received recognition through the years. A fundraising campaign begun in 1899 to raise money for the placement of a Celtic cross on Isabella’s unmarked grave with the inscription, “Isabella Valency Crawford/Poet/By the Gift of God.”
