I agree with all the posts on here and would just like to say that the most important thing you can do for your daughter is to give her a strong sense of self. She would  be horrified if you binned your research.
How you react to criticism will be noted by her so you need to stand tall, look the cretins in the eye and inform them that you have listened to them but strongly disagree and will not be taking their criticisms on board. Then walk away smiling.
Do not engage with them or give them the reaction they are waiting for as it only feeds their ego and you won't win. There are many people who feed their own sense of self by trying to take others down. It never makes them any happier.

I can't see a divorce for them on ancestry's England & Wales, Civil Divorce Records, 1858-1916.
At that time it is much more likely that they both just went their own ways as most in their position couldn't afford the cost of divorcing. So quite likely that Vincent and Ada never married or of they did it would be in the US where nobody knew them.

I see on the 1911 census Francesco says he is married but Sarah is down as single and is the  housekeeper so he is not pretending  to be married to Sarah.

Vincent Joseph Pent born 24 July 1875, nationality US. Draft Registration in New York, wife Ada Louise Pent

In 1915 they had a daughter age 5 with them Viola Rose Mary Pent. She married Philip G Becker in June 1934
The 1900 census says they immigrated in 1895. I haven't found a marriage for them on FreeBMD.

James is on the 1851 census with his wife and 3 children at King, York County, Canada West (Ontario) and it says born in Ireland. In the 1861 census Sarah is a widow in Carrick, Bruce, Canada West, so James died sometime between the two censuses.

There is also a tree on ancestry which has Clara Jane Richards born 1882 Littlebury Gloucestershire married to a William Israel Short. They give the birth details that you have for Clara jane. Unfortunately they don't give her parent's names. In 1911 they are living in Dorset.
