Biography contributed by Katherine Blakeley

Isabella Campbell was born about 1834 in Scotland.

The family emigrated to Otago in 1860 on the Pladda and settled in Dunedin where John worked as a painter.

They had a further 10 children, two who died in infancy.

When Isabella signed the suffrage petition the family were living in Albany St.

She died on 13 January 1906 in Parnell, Auckland while visiting her daughter and is buried in the Purewa Cemetery.
