  i. Thomas Lister of Wakefield (d 1507)
  a. John Lister of Wakefield
  m. Elizabeth Beaumont (d before 17.06.1545, dau of John Beaumont of Lascelles Hall by Alice, dau of John Soothill of Soothill Hall, m2. John Birkhead of Wakefield)

  m. Mary Wriothesley (dau of Thomas, 1st Earl of Southampton)
  (a) Richard Lister
  (ii) Elizabeth Lister (d 1582)
  The Blount records, supported by Visitation (Foster, Yorkshire, 1612, Lister of Wakefield) & FMG (vol 4, p1256), suggest that Elizabeth was a generation earlier but Maddison shows her as of this generation. Provisionally we follow Maddison, because of the dates, but this warrants further investigation.

FMG (vol 4, Lister, MS594) supports part of the above, starting with John (m. _ Beaumont), son of Thomas. FMG (vol 4, Lister, MS595) starts with the following Richard but gives no indication of any connection between him and the family above. Nevertheless, it appears to be not unlikely that the following Richard was connected to the above family in some way (as yet unknown).
