Someone has this family line:
http://gw.geneanet.org/sirlan?lang=en;pz=malcolm+basil;nz=i+anson;ocz=0;p=christiana;n=whitfield
So: two children b. "Whitfield" (Anthony Atkinson Whitfield and an Irene), three born "l'Anson" after marriage. Christiana's death was in 1951 NSW as they list it, but under "Maydwell". Interestingly, they also have her possibly married to an "Armstrong" in NZ.  (Possibly another surname for Isaiah?)

Supposedly Christiana went to New Norfolk, Tasmania, before moving to Victoria.
She was in Sea Lake by early 1911 (trove reference to "Mrs Maydell's"):

No trace of Isaiah being with the family in Victoria so I'd guess that either they separated or he passed away in NZ or Australia sometime before 1911 - under what name, though!

 only "Anthony Ianson" (arrived in 1909 on the Runic)  found on the incoming lists so far - he apparently stayed in the UK and joined the family directly.

You might be able to get in touch with descendants (via top link) and see if they have any clues as to the fate of Isaiah...

That is very interesting. I`m helping a friend with his family,  and his Gt gt Grandmother was Hannah Oldbury, b 1838  Wednesbury.  Her father was Isaiah  a coach smith and also she had a brother of that same name.   I have a feeling this one who went to NZ was her brother.
Incidentally Hannah married 3 times, but I am sure the second husband  didn`t die before she married the third.
I found him up till 1891. Moses Southall there is only one of that name and age in the OK census.
A family habit perhaps  ;)

She states she is married, but there is no sign of Isaiah . maybe he is in NZ.

Isaiah senior died in Middlesex England in 1922.  I have a copy of his will.  Everything was left to his estranged wife, Sarah Ann, who continued to live in Wednesbury after he abandoned her.  Presumably he and Christiana parted company and he returned to England.
I am interested in F Maydwell.  I can find no reference to a marriage with Christiana.

Christiana Whitfield's father is my relative. 
Happy to share any information. I have a tree on Ancestry.
Do you have any information on the Maydwell connection?

I have no connection with anyone. Presumably the Maydwell marriage  was in NZ.
I have been researching the Oldbury family for a friend of my cousin. I am in Wales. 
It`s odd but even though Isaiah`s probate states he died 6 Jan 1922 in Middlesex I can`t find him in  any death indexes. 
He was born 1841 so was about 81. Considering he had been a successful business man he didn`t leave much.
This must be Sarah Ann.
Sarah A Oldbury death
Sep 1924 Age at Death:86

Joanna, is there any detail in the will about where he died.
He isn`t showing in any online death indexes , Could he have died overseas ?
