Biographical data
Name: Isaac, W. Lister  
   Also known as: Rev. Lister Isaac
Born:
Died:
 
Notes:
Name given as 'Rev. W.S. Isaac' in the 16 Sep. 1855 issue of the Era, but I suspect the initials are being confused with those of Rev. W.S. Temple. Elsewhere given as 'Lister Isaac' but in the 23 June 1861 issue of the Era it appears as 'Rev. W.L. Isaac'. If this is correct, then, he generally used his second name, Lister.
