TitleLister, Harriet
AdminHistoryHarriet (sometimes spelt Harriot) Lister [1753-1821] was a close friend and correspondent of Elizabeth Pulteney (née Galton), the wife of Richard Pulteney (1730-1801). She was an artist who made pencil drawings of landscapes and was once an Honorary Exhibitor at the Royal Academy in London (1784). She lived in Beverly and later York with her mother, made frequent visits to the assemblies at Scarborough and had a keen interest in philosophy.
Elizabeth Pulteney (née Galton) (1739-1820) was the daughter of John Galton and Elizabeth Baskett of Shapwick, Dorset. Her mother had previously married and as a result Elizabeth had many relations in the families of Baskett, Salpine and Kingston. In 1779 she married the physician and botanist Richard Pulteney (1730-1801), son of Samuel Pulteney and Mary Tomlinson. They had no children from their marriage, but adopted Mary Purbeck, Elizabeth's niece, in 1793.
