Facts and Events
Name Issack
Alt Name[2] Isitt
Gender Female
Burial[1] 21 Feb 1710 Heckington, Lincolnshire, England

Issack's origins are unknown. Her first sighting is on 22nd November 1668 when she gave birth to a daughter named Ann Gray at Heckington in Lincolnshire. By this time Issack was already married to a William Gray. Ann was followed in 1671 by a daughter named Elizabeth, then a son named William in 1680. There also appears to have been a son named John who died in 1686, but no baptism has been found for him.

Issack appears to have spent the rest of her life in Heckington. Her daughter Ann was married there in 1691 and her son William was married there in 1703. Issack's husband William died some time before 1710, but it is not known precisely when.

Issack died in 1710, some thirty years after her youngest child had been born. The burial record describes her as an old widow.

    Issack's unusual name was spelled in two different ways in the four appearances it makes in the Heckington parish registers. Her daughter Ann's baptism (1668) and her daughter Elizabeth's baptism (1671) both spell it "Issack" whilst her son William's baptism (1680) and her burial (1710) spell it "Isitt".
