A collection of historical and genalogical records
Isabella had a contemporary named Isabel Dunton, a daughter of a John Dunton. There are two differences-Isabel Dunton always spelled her given name Isabel while Isabella Senior spelled her given name Isabella. The other difference is one had the surname Dunton and the other, that is Isabella, acquired the name Dunton through marriage.
Isabel Senior, born 1728, Northampton Co., Virginia, died 1788, leaving a will. Her husband, Stephen Dunton, had his estate administered 13 Jan 1772, Minutes #28, 1771-1777, page 28, Northampton County, Virginia. His estate was administered by John Harmanson, the widow, Isabella.having resigned. (We are reminded by the death of John Senior, Jr., when Gertrude Harmanson settled the estate of her father when her mother, Martha, refused to settle the estate of her husband.)
