Captain Jeremy Lister is a veteran of the American War of Independence - on the losing side, as Anne frequently reminds him.

Jeremy’s relationship with his eldest daughter is not exactly affectionate, but there is mutual respect, and his desire for a quiet life is tempered by the excitement of having her around. In many ways, Jeremy is more forward thinking than Anne, recognising the irrepressible tide of reform that is approaching industrialising Halifax.
