She had a daughter, Sarah Ellen Wilkinson , born in 1873/4, in Leeds, and in 1876 Clara married David Wright in Leeds. She had a second daughter, Florence Wright, in 1878. Both these daughters seem to have taken the last name Day upon Clara's marriage to William Day. Clara died in 1908, in Leeds, aged 53.

Notes: The marriage certificate of William's son, William James Day, lists the younger William's father as William James Day, but this is the only reference I have seen that the elder William may also have had the middle name James.
