Maud Kempson was born in 1889 at Luton in Bedfordshire, daughter of a straw hat sewer named Sarah Ann Kempson, formerly Smith, and her husband James Kempson, a bricklayer and plait bleacher.

In 1910, aged 20, Maud married an engineer fitter named James Frederick Wright, who was from the nearby village of Markyate. The 1911 census finds them living at 71 Harcourt Street in Luton. Maud and James appear to have had two children together, in 1911 and 1915.

James died in 1974, aged 86. Maud outlived him by just over three years, dying in 1978, aged 88.
