Nampara House was the home of the Poldark family owned by Ross Poldark. It was located in Nampara, Cornwall.


The earliest known owner of Nampara House was Joshua Poldark, who lived there with son, Ross Poldark. At some point, Jud and Prudie Paynter became servants of the house.

Joshua died in March 1783. Ross Poldark was also thought to have died, but he came home later that same year. Nampara House was left in a mess, with Jud and Prudie having decided to live there. Ross told them to clean it up, and eventually decided to stay there.

Ross later married Demelza Carne, who he had took on as a scullery maid for the house. They had their first child, Julia Poldark, at Nampara House, where she died when she was about two years old. They had two other children, Jeremy and Clowance Poldark, would later be born there too.
