The Biography of Lydia Trull

 

Lydia Trull was not an average woman of her time.  Lydia, a British Loyalist, eloped at a young age and married the love of her life, John Trull.  During the American Revolution, Lydia and her family were hounded out of the United States.  She lived through a horrid journey that many men and women did not survive because of scurvy and other diseases. 

Lydia Trull was skilled in the art of medicine, like many women of her time, but instead of using it for domestic circumstances, she expanded it into a profession and became a medicine woman.  She treated patients equally and helped many natives and settlers.    She was not able to become a doctor, because during the degrading 1800's, women were unable to claim the term doctor.  Lydia learned the art of medicine from her father Dr. Casey. 

In order to treat her patients, Lydia often risked her own life as she galloped on horseback through the treacherous forests, cantered through blazed trails after dusk and swam on horseback through whole lakes.

Though Courtice has been growing steadily over the last two hundred years, to this day the original Trull homestead still stands on Baseline Road as a reminder of the past.  Lydia was a brave and courageous woman who was not afraid to take risks, and the students of Lydia Trull Public School endeavour to follow her lead and try to replicate her courage and integrity.
