By 1861 they had one child William and were living in part of a house in Lawley Street, Aston.  By 1871 they had moved to Gale Street and in 1881 they were living at 208 Adderley Road, Aston, Warwickshire.  By 1891 they had moved to Kimberworth, Rotherham and lived at 36 Edward Street - by this time only daughter Alma was still living with her parents.  Joseph was still working as a wagon maker.

Sarah's parents were Joseph Brittle born 1807 and Ann Brittle born 1809, of Aston, Birmingham.

The family moved from Birmingham to Rotherham sometime before 1891.  Joseph (born 1864 - Clara's eldest brother) kept the Black Bull public house in Rotherham, opposite Rotherham football ground.   He lost all his money so moved with his wife (Emma Jones) to Manchester where he worked as a railway wagon maker.
