Early life

Sophie was the second of three daughters born to Dwight and Caroline Enys. Her elder sister, Sarah died of a heart defect four to five years earlier. Sophie was joined by a younger sister, Meliora in the next two years.[2]

Teenage years

In December 1819, Sophie and her family attended Geoffrey Charles and Amadora Poldark's dinner at Trenwith.[2] In June 1820, Sophie and Meliora spent the day at the beach with Demelza, Clowance and Henry Poldark, and Edward Fitzmaurice.[3] In September 1820, she was a bridesmaid at the wedding of Clowance and Edward.[4]


At the age of sixteen, Sophie was tall in height.[2]

  1. Bella Poldark, Book 2 (Agneta), Chapter 6: during a dinner party on "the twenty-first of December" in 1819, Graham gave her age: "Sophie, aged sixteen". For Sophie to be 16 at that time, she had to be born during these dates.
