Isabella Wyld married Robert Brown in 1799. In his Memoirs, Robert Stodart Wyld refers to his aunt through contrasting her with her husband Robert:

"Isabella, his [John Wyld's] fifth child, born in 1780 was married to Mr. Robert Brown, a Glasgow merchant. She died at Leith when about forty five years of age leaving five sons and two daughters...

"Mrs. Brown took a lively interest in all my father's family. She persuaded me, yet a boy, to engage in reading faithfully Rollin's Ancient History, for which task she assigned me a year. This I accomplished, and however old-fashioned and old-wifish that work may now be considered, I certainly never regretted the time I spent in reading it. ... How my delicate and refined aunt could marry a man so entirely dissimilar from herself, I could never understand; we only know that such alliances are not of unfrequent occurrence. Mr. Brown, as I have said, was a singular character. He was offensively contemptuous and dogmatic towards persons whom he did not like, and even towards his best friends, when they differed with him ... It would take much time and skill to represent this man aright, because he was a bundle of contradictions ... "
