Christiana Lister on 21/11/1811 at St Bartholomews Parish Church, Colne, Lancashire Certified


Baptised in Kirby. (Thanks Viv for that bit of info!)

Occupation in England: Schoolmaster in Colne and a city missionary. He was a preacher at Barrowfield in the 1830's

He was a man of considerable ability, great religious fervour and moral passion. He was a Wesleyan local precher, but later joined the Primitive Methodists. He was urged to join the ministry but declined. At a later period he regretted his refusal and vowed that if he had a son, he would dedicate him to the service of God. At his son Robert's birth that vow was renewed and it was with the boy almost as with the prophet Samuel; for very early in life he took part in Church work.

Later in life William became a missionary in the Isle of Man. He died during an epidemic of fever which claimed him as it's victim, as with self-effacing devotion he ministered to the needs of others.
Buried: St Georges, Douglas, Isle of Man
