She was born in 1488 as Ursula Southeil, Mother Shipton’s origins trace back to Agatha Southeil, her daughter, who was 15 years old at the time. Ursula’s reputedly grotesque appearance, marked by a large head, sunken cheeks, twisted limbs, a complete set of teeth, and glittering eyes like embers, fueled the idea that she was a child of the Devil. Mother Shipton’s cave was soon to become famous.

It is said that within a cavern in Knaresborough, Yorkshire, emerged one of Britain’s renowned women. The site of her birth, now known as Mother Shipton’s Cave, remains a popular site associated with legends of witches and prophecy.

Ursula’s childhood unfolded in isolation, her concentration focused on her inward world and a profound connection with nature. Her exact start date for her visions is unknown. As her whole life became entwined with Mother Shipton’s Cave, where she developed her skills, delved into flower and herb knowledge, searched visions, and, whether or not it was intentional, produced a weird tale.
