William Lister (1680 – ????) was the 9th great-grandfather of Cometan, classified as one of Cometan’s distant paternal ancestors in the Taylor family line. Born in Yorkshire, William is understood to have been the father of William Lister (1695 – 1767), but little else is known of his life, including the identities of his parents and his spouse. The details of William’s death also remain a mystery.
In Cometanic ancestry, William is categorised as part of the 11th generation retrograde, classifying him as a distant ancestor of Cometan.
