Sophia Woodfall entry: Overview screen.
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
The former SW was in all probability the Sophia McGibbon who died in Holborn
