Verity is one of my favourite characters in poldark ( I named my daughter after her) and i wish there were more information about her marriage to Blamey. she only featured sporadically once married and we never really learn how or if indeed she ever did, win over the daughter of blamey and his first wife.

I agree, she is much less rash and impulsive than the other Poldarks. She was afraid of ending up an "old maid" like Aunt Agatha, which WOULD have been a shame. I agree, her marriage to Andrew was a very happy one, in spite of everyone's worst fears.

I miss seeing more of the Blameys. James would seem a natural fit with the Poldark Crew.
Verity and Clowance are definitely closely linked. See Clowance's admiration for Trenwith, GC, and the gift brooch left for her by Agatha. The Falmouth years for Clowance linked her very closely with Verity (see Andrew taking her aboard ships for visits like a daughter).

Surely you are not suggesting that Andrew Blamey was MR Collins though??? lol!
In keeping with all of WG's female characters, Verity was a wonderfully strong woman, extremely unselfish, compassionate, reliable and capable of devoted and unwavering love. I always get the impression from his books that Verity was very happily married to Andrew Blamey, despite his long absences away at sea, her life completed by the birth of her son who she doted on, although I felt he never grew into the kind of young man I would have wished Verity's son to be. It's such a shame she never had another child, a daughter would have been so wonderful for her, coming as she did from a male dominated household; I always think she missed out here. She obviously played a large part in Clowance's life, and was very much the beloved and trusted Aunt, who Clowance felt she could turn to and confide in, this must have been a great joy for Verity.In series 2 I think that Verity's place as close female friend and support in Ross's life was largely filled by his friendship with Caroline, who became his close friend and confidante. I am sure that if the story were to miraculously extend beyond Bella, we would see Verity emerge again and I always imagine that she was very much part of the close Poldark family circle in the later lives of our lovely family.
