And actually I am quite interested in Isa herself - I asked the
theatre museum in Covent Garden if they knew anything about her
and they said no. Does anyone else know anything about her?
I thought of this because I spotted a nice book by a journalist
called William Dodgson Bowman who was writing in the 1920s and
30s.- he was particularly interested in surnames and the book I
saw was about those. I assumed he was no relation - that would
have been TOO much of a coincidence - but it did lead me to
wonder if Isa had any descendants, and if any are alive today.
