The eBay sale has just concluded for the bookplate of the Reverend Anthony Lister of Gargrave, vendor look-back-in-time.  In 1807 Lister married Mary, the daughter of William York.  In 1827 he changed his surname by Royal License to Marsden as a condition of inheriting an estate from John Marsden.  However, the legacy was subject to two legal challenges.  The second case did not find in his favour.
