Lister, a Tory like his father, voted against the Government on the Hanoverians in 1746. The 2nd Lord Egmont in his electoral survey c.1749-50, wrote of him: ‘Though reputed a strong and sour Jacobite, he has talked otherwise of late, and that if it were not for proscription there would not be a Jacobite in England’.

He died 29 Nov. 1761.
