About Sophie Lily Wilde

In January 1894, Willie married Lily Lees (1859-1922), with whom he had been living. Kevin O'Brien characterizes her as "an emotional woman with a tendency to early panic[;] she believed (incorrectly) that she was pregnant" and sought a powder to end the pregnancy. The marriage caused further grief to Lady Wilde when the couple moved in with her. She wrote to Oscar on 4 February 1894, to inform him of the marriage: "Miss Lees has but £50 a year and this just dresses her. She can give nothing to the house and Willie is always in a state of utter poverty. So all is left upon me". Willie and Lily had their only child in July 1895, Dorothy Ierne.
