Arthur Stephen Day, son of John Day and Ellen Wiltonmarried Mary Ann Ray (daughter of William Ray) on 29 Mar 1879 in Chipping Ongar

This couple had three children. 
  1. Arthur Wilton Day b. 29 Dec 1879, bap. 22 Feb 1880
  2. Daisy Rhoda Day b. 10 Feb 1881, bap. 8 Apr 1881
  3. Cecil Alfred Day b. 20 Nov 1886, bap. 23 Jan 1887
All of the baptisms took place at St Martin's Church, Chipping Ongar

In 1881, Arthur S Day (27) was employed as a Grocer's Assistant in High Street, Chipping-Ongar, Essex with wife Mary Ann (27), Arthur (1) and Daisy (0), and Elizabeth E North (11), niece, staying with them as a visitor.

In 1891, Arthur (37) is a Fruiterer's Assistant, still in Hight Street, Chipping Ongar, with wife Mary Ann, son Arthur (11), Daisy (10), Cecil (4) and James Keys (68), Shoemaker, as a boarder.

Still in Chipping Ongar, in 1901, Arthur (46), Mary Ann (45) just had Cecil (14) at home with them. Arthur's occupation was given as Photographer. Back in 1871, aged 15, Arthur Stephen Day was listed as a Photographic Artist, so he has gone full circle, presumably now able to make his living from something he loved. (Arthur and Daisy had both married in 1900, in Wandsworth.) 

In 1911, Arthur (57), wife is listed as Marion (57) and staying with them are their grandsons: Archibald Wilton Napoleon Heckman (10) and Cecil Arthur Heckman (7) - Daisy's children. 

Mary Ann Day died in 1931, aged 78.
