sepia-toned platinotype, 1 August 1919

May and Henry married 14 June 1890 at FulhamRegister Office. The marriage broke down in 1894 as a result of her affair with a former lover, playwright George Bernard Shaw. The Sparlings were divorced in 1898 and May resumed her maiden name.

There were no children which is interesting.
