Raworth lives in London. In March 2017, the genealogy programme, Who Do You Think You Are? on BBC television, featured Sophie Raworth's family story. It revealed that she was descended from non-conformist ancestors who were members of an idealistic religious community called the New Jerusalem Church. They lived in Birmingham at a time when the city was rocked by religious riots in 1791 with people like her ancestors being the targets. In the aftermath of the riots, Sophie's ancestors, William and Martha Mott, took a great risk and uprooted their young family and moved to America. However, within two years of arriving, the parents had died of yellow fever and the children were sent back to England. Raworth discovers in the programme that she was not descended from the line that she had previously believed, but from Samuel Mott who was sent to live with a bankrupt and ended up taking his own life. Investigating another branch of her paternal family tree, she found a long line of horticultural heritage stretching back to the 1700s, and beginning with her great-grandfather, Edgar Cussons Crowder, who once worked in the Palm House at Kew Gardens. Further research reveals that her five times great-grandfather, Abraham Crowder, grew and sold pineapple plants in the 18th century, at a time when the fruit was a prestigious luxury.
