Note: William married a Mary Smith (not found any record) however there is a marriage of a William Liston to a Mary Smith in Bristol in 1748. William and Mary appear to have children Mary, Richard & William found on It appears not long after a William and Ann Smith have children also, Mary had a middle name? An Ann Smith died in 1798 aged 65 and it states she is the wife of William Lifton labourer. I believe this must be the same William? There is a later William Lifton and on marriage transcripts of his children he is named as a Labourer, Ropeman, Mariner and boatman! There is burial transcripts for Liftons buried in the early 1800s aged young as well. I am trying to find the Quaker link as instructed by a descendant who had it in a book. There seems to be a large amount of Lifton families in the Hubberston/Steynton area. I descended from Richard Lifton born 1788, he is on a marriage record for a James married in 1814 in steynton. This was an son of Isaac born around 1771/2 and he was a shoemaker. I wonder if Richards dad died when he was young and Isaac taught him the shoe making trade? In early Bristol there is a Samuel Lifton as well.
