Atwood House Museum


Women at Sea tells the story of a woman’s life aboard a sailing vessel embarking on the China Trade during the late 1800s.  Frances Carleton Brastow Amesbury was one of those women and though her story is not unique, it tells of an adventurous series of journeys around the world.

Frances Carleton Brastow Amesbury is the great aunt of Barbara Brastow Semple, Chatham resident, dedicated volunteer and docent at the Atwood House & Museum, home of the Chatham Historical Society. Through Barbara Semple’s reading of her fifteen years of journals and several books and diaries, our speaker has been able to put together a travelogue highlighting women’s voyages, with an emphasis on great aunt Frances’ experiences sailing the high seas around the world.

Tickets are available at the door.  Doors open at 1:15 pm and seating is limited.

Admission: $10, Members Free
