Sophia Woodfall, whose career was in acting, published two interesting novels during the first decade of the nineteenth century. Some lines of poetry in one of them are probably her own.
Milestones
SW was born in London into a well-established family of publishers and journalists. Even if she was improbably young when she published her first novel, she must have been born before about 1785.
By November 1803 SW published the earlier of her two novels, the epistolary Frederick Montravers; or, The Adopted Son. Bibliographic Citation link.
June 1852 The former SW was in all probability the Sophia McGibbon who died in Holborn this month. Bibliographic Citation link.
