Florence was the daughter of William and Selina (née Douglas) Stubbings and was born in Sawston.  William was a fellmonger (a dealer in animal skins, usually sheepskin) and she grew up on London Road, Sawston. By 1901 the family had moved to live at 15 Guest Road, Cambridge. Florence married Alfred George Clark (1879-1946) in 1908 and they had at least three children: George Douglas (1914-1987), Florence Marion (1917-) and John Frederick (1921-1937).  All the children were born in Runcorn, Cheshire, but by at least 1926 they had returned to Cambridge and lived at 11 Park Parade, where  Alfred and Florence ran a Lodging House.  She died at Addenbrookes Hospital aged 49 years old.
