Emma Hardingen Britten, a pioneer of modern Spiritualism

Emma Hardinge Britten

Emma Hardinge Britten was born in London, England in 1823 and is widely considered to be one of the pioneers of modern Spiritualism.  As a child she often saw dead family friends and relatives, as well as being able to predict the outcome of coming events.

During a visit to America in 1855 she found she had a mediumship ability for table tipping and rapping. During a table séance she held in 1856, a message from a friend who had died on a recently sunk ship was spelt out- no one knew the friend was dead. After this Emma became a well known medium.
