Lister or Lidster from Yorkshire

Journal by TracySW

My gt gt gt grandmother Mary LISTER's death record in 1906 has her maiden name as Lister but her birth record 1825 Barugh, Kirby Misperton, Yorkshire, England has her and her family name as LIDSTER.
She married William WARD 1843 in Kirby Misperton, Yorkshire, William was born 1821 Spaunton,Yorkshire. They had two daughters Jane Anne and Margaret born in Pickering, Yorkshire before they immigrated to Australia in 1853 on the Marian Moore. They had 6 more children in Euroa, Victoria where they settled on arriving in Australia.

Mary's parents are Thomas LIDSTER b.c1795 and Ann ? b.1800
William's parents are John WARD and Jane HERVEY b.1788 Skelton, Yorkshire.

Jane Anne WARD, my gt gt grandmother married Timothy SHEPHERDSON in 1869 Victoria, Australia, what I found interesing recently is that Janes great grandmothers name was Mercy SHEPHERDSON also from Yorkshire. Timothy's father Robert SHEPHERDSON was from Yorkshire, but I have no Mercy mentioned down his line (yet)

Anyone with any information on the family would be appreciated.

P.S. I have since found Mercy Shepherdson's ancestor was Edward Grimshaw 1559 - 1635 married to Dorothy Raner 1575 - 1602 both were involved with the Quaker movement.

If you could see your ancestors
All standing in a row,
Would you be proud of them or not,
Or don't you really know?
Some strange discoveries are made
in climbing family trees,
But some of them, you know,
Do not particulary please.
If you could see your ancestors
All standing in a row,
There may be some of them, perhaps,
You would not care to know.
But there's another question
Which requires a different view;
If you could meet your ancestors,
Would they be proud of YOU?
