Wolff was born in 1848, the daughter of Moritz Wolff
and Fanny Maria Schwabe. She died aged 47 years in London on 25 March 1896 and is
buried at the Brompton Cemetery. She
married Frederick Albert May in 1872, half brother of her sister Ida's husband Thomas May (see
May Family page).
Frederick was born in 1842 and died 16 June 1908 in Parkstone, Dorset.
After Clara died he later remarried. Clara and Frederick had
twins: Clara and Frederick who were born on 10
October 1872, Hamburg, Germany. Clara's sister Ida married Thomas May and
(it is believed) the only living descendants of both the Wolff and May families are through Ida.
