Hello Mark, when you say "any information" what precisely are you trying to find? What info do you already have in the way of census, etc? (Just so we don't duplicate your own research).

Have your looked for any records on Scotlands People site?

Elizabeth aged 9 on the 1841 census could be Isabella.

Isabella Fitchet Curtis would be the daughter of David the son who is 15 on the census.
