This week, Lavetta tells the hilarious story of the mother of one of the most annoying Mayflower families, Elinor Billington; and Miriam tells the story of one of the most beloved Canadians, Lucy Maud Montgomery.
-----
In this episode, Lavetta introduces the story of Elinor Billington (English, 1582–1642), a passenger on the Mayflower and who, along with her family, was one of the first settlers in the New World. The hosts explore the background of the Mayflower voyage, the different groups on board, and the signing of the Mayflower Compact, designed to quell the brewing discontent and establish a new agreement among the passengers. The Billingtons were known for their troublemaking and confrontational behavior, causing tensions among the Pilgrims and other colonizers. Billington, in particular, faced challenges and was involved in slander and whipping incidents. Next, Miriam introduces Lucy Maud Montgomery (Canadian, 1874–1942), the prolific author of the beloved Anne of Green Gables series and a collection of novels, essays, short stories, and poetry. Montgomery's early life, education, and teaching career are explored, highlighting her passion for writing and her ability to bring joy, despite her struggles with depression and the challenges she faced as a woman in a patriarchal society.
