Louisa was born in Brompton, Kent and was baptised there on 24 November 1862. She was the daughter of Samuel and Elizabeth (née Saltmarsh) and sister of Charles.

Samuel Clarabut was a linen draper and  by 1881  had re-located his  business to Wellingborough in Northamptonshire.  Louisa was living at home with her parents and six siblings in that year.  She married her brother’s business partner Cuthbert Williams (1865-1945) on 12 November 1891 at  All Saints’ with All Hallows Church in  Wellingborough.

Louisa and Cuthbert  had three children: Evelyn Mary (1892-1980), Basil Cuthbert (1896-1963) and Gwenneth Margaret (1900-2001).  He ran a wine spirit business which continued under the name of Clarabut and Williams even after the death of Louisa’s brother Charles in 1897.  Cuthbert later acted as an insurance  agent for Norwich Union (1906) and they lived at Lindisfarne, Gresham Road (1901) and then 19 Lyndewode Road (1911).

Louisa died in 1929, and Cuthbert married Frances Margaret Stevens (1894-1985) in 1934.  In 1939 he was living at 25 Tenison Avenue with Frances and documented as being a publisher.
