Lived in Elizabeth Street North, (Melbourne). Married Edward Charles
Thornton on the 20th Feb
1886, at 7 Royal Park Terrace, Hotham. She was then working as a Tailoress.
Later lived in Bellair St, Kensington with her husband, when her mother Sarah
Ann Prosser died.
Jean Kelly remembers her. She wrote to her on many occasions til her 19
year. 'Mrs Thornton', as she was
to be called by the great niece, wrote back with some disapproval of my aunts
dress and interest in dancing. "There are more important things in life
than dancing". When Mrs Thornton was to visit the family, food was
prepared on Friday, as no work was to be performed on the Saturday the
Sabbath. Thus, it is thought she belonged at this time to Seventh Day
Adventist Church. She was of later years thought to live in Collingwood or
Fitzroy. Isabella died in Northcote in 1943.
