Isabella was born Carlisle, Cumberland,England. She married Trooper James Manning in 1792, but
was living with Robert Forrester (Scarborough 1788) by 1794.

1805/06 Muster: recorded as a housekeeper, living with Robert Foster/Forrester.
1806: recorded as a concubine - 8 natural children, 4 boys and 4 girls.

1814 muster: apparently separated from her
husband Robert and living at Wilberforce with her second daughter Mrs Margaret Ridge, although other conclusions are that she died shortly after the 1806 flood from which she was rescued after standing neck deep in water with her baby (also Isabella Jane
Forrester) for some time.
