Not 100% sure; it is a common enough name, but coincidental to find the entry on the census AND the FindMyPast record.

I am guessing in 1851 I could say just about anything without fear of reprisal, especially as he was around 80 years old in 1851.

Is it the John Lister in Wigan in the 1851 census, born in Chorley?

There's a Pension record for a John Lister (born 1767) of "Chawley" Lancashire. Attestation: 1810.
Regiment: 61st Foot.

If it's the John Lister born in Chorley, he was a pensioner of 61st Foot (1810-1814) but had also served in the reserve of 48th Regiment.  Pension records show that he died in March 1856.

Yes, that's him.
I am delighted with that record card. :D
Thank you so much. Case closed, I think.

Thanks so much for all the assistance.
I am going a bit cross eyed trying to help this adoptee gain some biological personal history.

Mowsehowse, in case you are unfamiliar with Chelsea records, don't forget to download the next page (the right hand arrow) as that is the back of his record sheet.
