Bell – Isabella Head

Bell is Priscilla’s pet name for her beloved daughter Isabella (1773-1841).  From Priscilla’s journal entries it is clear they were very close. In 1799  Bell married Joshua Head and moved to Ipswich. At the news of the eminent arrival of a new baby Priscilla would aim to be on hand to assist her daughter. Priscilla’s health began to fail in her 60s and in 1813 she went to live permanently with Bell in Ipswich.
