Isabel Thorneborough (née Airey; also spelt as Ayrey, or Arey; January 1654 – September 1747) was an English pauper and the 10th great-grandmother of Cometan, classified as one of Cometan’s distant paternal ancestors in the McKerney family line. Isabel was baptised on 14th February 1654 in St Andrew’s Church, Penrith, Cumberland. Isabel was the daughter of John (b.1632) and Barbara Airey (b.1630).

Isabel is known to have given birth to and raised two sons named Oswald and Uzziel Airey. Isabel’s husband was George Thorneboorugh whom she is known to have married on 3rd November 1697 in Garsdale, Yorkshire. As such, her son, Oswald, was ascribed his mother’s maiden name which raises questions as to whom his father was. Isabel is recorded to have died at the age of 93 and was buried on 17th September 1747 in Dent, Yorkshire (modern day Cumbria). 

In Cometanic ancestry, Isabel is categorised as part of the 12th generation retrograde, classifying her as a distant ancestor of Cometan.
