Event description
A unique virtual presentation on childhood in Colonial America. Guest Presenters: Velya Jancz-Urban & Ehris Urban

About this event

Join the Norwalk Historical Society via Zoom on Thursday, February 3, 2022 at 5:30pm for the virtual lecture, "Pudd’nheads: Childhood in Colonial America", with guest presenters Velya Jancz-Urban and Ehris Urban of the Grounded Goodwife.

Pilgrim and Puritan colonists had children, and though it would be hard to tell from historical records, so did indigenous families and enslaved Africans.

"Pudd’nheads: Childhood in Colonial America" examines the unique aspects of childhood between the late sixteenth and late eighteenth centuries. The presentation explores birthing and childrearing practices, parenting, children’s health and education, naming, gender, play, and rites of passage.

"Pudd’nheads" provides fresh historical perspectives on key features of children’s lives. Without a doubt, the lives of Native American children, Enslaved children, and Puritan children differed greatly.

Velya Jancz-Urban – author, teacher, and creator of "The Not-So-Good Life of the Colonial Goodwife" – has partnered with her herbalist daughter, Ehris Urban, on this unique presentation. "Pudd’nheads: Childhood in Colonial America" is similar to "The Not-So-Good Life of the Colonial Goodwife" in that it is funny, sad, sweet, and shocking.

Tickets: $5.00 per household. Once you've purchased a ticket, the Zoom link will be included at the bottom of your confirmation email under Additional Details. Zoom link will also be emailed to you 24 hours and 1 hour before the event. You can also access the Zoom link in this event's Online Event Page on Eventbrite.

This program is in conjunction with the Norwalk Historical Society’s new exhibit, “Norwalk’s Changing Communities – 13,000BC – 1835”, which was funded in part by grants from Connecticut Humanities and the City of Norwalk Historical Commission.

The Norwalk Historical Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

About the presenters:

Ehris Urban, owner of Woodbury, CT’s Grounded Holistic Wellness, believes, “if you’re grounded, you can navigate even the bumpiest roads in peace.” She grew up in a family passionate about holistic medicine. Ehris is a green witch, herbalist, holistic nutritionist, and graduate of the New England School of Homeopathy. Additionally, Ehris is a Flower Essence Therapy practitioner. She became interested in Reiki as a teenager and attained Reiki Master certification at age 17. Ehris is also a certified Ingham Method reflexologist. A graduate of Western Connecticut State University with a B.A. in Anthropology/Sociology, she is also a certified ESL teacher. Ehris enjoys beekeeping, tending her organic vegetable and herb gardens, and working in her apothecary.

Velya Jancz-Urban lives her life by the adage, “there is no growth without change.” Zany and gregarious, she is a teacher, author, former Brazilian dairy farm owner, and herstory unsanitized expert. Moving into a 1770 Connecticut farmhouse ignited Velya’s obsession with the colonial era, and led to her entertainingly-informative presentation, The Not-So-Good Life of the Colonial Goodwife. She has been married to Jim for 38 years and is the mother of two grown children. Velya has a few too many rescue dogs and cats, is happiest with a fresh stack of library books, loves thrift shops, and is passionate about alternative medicine.
