Public lecturer, poet and novelist. See ODNB. Married George Linnaeus Banks in 1846; the failure of their newspapers The Windsor Royal and the Evening Exchange precipitated the couple's application to the Royal Literary Fund for support. George Linnaeus Banks was involved for many years with establishing mechanics' institutes in the Midlands and the North; he contributed to the Birmingham Journal, Liverpool Chronicle, Liverpool Mail, Dublin Daily Express and other local newspapers (1845-64). Isabella contributed to Bentley's Miscellany, People's Journal, Howitt's Journal, Eliza Cook's Journal, Hood's Magazine and others (1846-54).
