Clara's name at birth was Clara Adriana Spruijt. However, when her father emigrated to the United States in 1885 he assumed the surname "Courtland" as his older brother Pieter Spruijt (Capt. William Courtland) had done several years before.

Clara was one of eight children. Her siblings were Pieter Krijn Spruijt, who died in infancy in the Netherlands; Pieter Krijn Spruijt (Carl Peter Courtland); Willemina Martina Spruijt (Courtland); Richard "Dick" Courtland; Nathan William "Thijs" Courtland; Jennie Courtland; and John H. Courtland.

Clara married Frank Scott Hamilton, Jr. on November 1, 1906 in Ludington, Mason County, Michigan. They had three children: Adeline, Helen, and Gladys Hamilton.
