Isabella, the child of Benjamin Gibson and Annie Elliot, married Robert Richardson at the age of eighteen. The couple lived in the mining village of Evenwood in Durham County. Robert , who was a miner, was killed in a fall of coal on 8 May 1874 when he was only 35. The widow was assisted for some time by Sir George Elliot, who was said to be a relative; he was a self-made man, having been a pit boy.
