James Lister/Litster/Lester/Leicester married Mary Arthur 1807 in Portmoak, Scotland.
I have been doing really well with my "family tree project" until one Mr James Lister (of course with various spellings!)He definitely married Mary Arthur and they definitely jad Jean/Jessie Litster who then married James Lister.
Try as I might, I can get no further with the Lister side of things than James. We have a family story that we were somehow related to the Sir Joseph Lister (sterile surgery) but as yet have been unable to prove or disprove this family story.
Mary Arthur was the niece of Thomas Arthur. He was a draper/merchant and left a 41 page will!
I guess that will do for my first posting. I'm in Western Australia.
