Isabel Mary Wells is the cousin, and later the wife, of famed writer, inventor, and time traveler H.G. Wells. What most people don't realize is that she is an important contributor to her husband's invention of the time machine.It's her brilliant understanding of physics that made the invention possible.

While she took her husband's rise to fame and her disappearing to the sidelines with an appropriately British stiff upper lip. She found it completely intolerable that he was carrying on affairs with women in other time periods. When the opportunity presented itself, she left him, taking the time machine and wandering through histroy.

Marital crisis with time travel! Neat! (Well, not so neat for the couple in question, of course.)

Well, history says Isobel left him anyway, and there are reports he carried on affairs with other women that his second wife was fully aware of, so it's not that much of a stretch.
