Notes for Isabella Allan Graham
Civil records suggest that Isabella had quite an itinerant chldhood. The Graham family moved from Ayrshire, Scotland to London in the early 1850s and emigrated to Melbourne in the latter part of 1854. Isabella's mother remarried there in 1859 to Henry Hellyer.

In the early 1860s the family moved to Dunedin, New Zealand. Some time after husband Henry's death Isabella lived at 780 George St, Dunedin (1928 Census) then in Christchurch (1931). According to correspondence among three of her sons in 1929, she was in somewhat straightened circumstances and had been earlier boarding in Dunedin then moved in with her widowed daughter Isabella in Christchurch where they provided financial support.

Isabella's name is spelt "Esabella" on the Melbourne death entry for her father. The grave site of Isabella and Henry has a tall decorative pink granite stone, concrete surround & wood chips cover. See Don Hutton's files for more.
