Thanks for this lead, much appreciated. At the moment my favourite possibility is John Lester (Listor) who married Anne Smith, spinster, 13 June 1734, at Katherine by the Tower, City of London, London, England because in the Banns document he is listed as a 'taylor' in the City of London. (My theory is that John was apprenticed by his father because I couldn't find his apprenticeship record, just his as a Master.) In 1742 there is a death registration for Anne Lester, coincidentally the same year as John's brother Thomas's birth. Possibly Ann Breach (b. 1703) had been married and widowed by then and figured into the family later but was not John's mother but perhaps a significant person. Once on a message board I contacted someone with Breach family records and she told me the research was her husband's but he was too ill to be helpful. What she did know was that the Breach family 'was complicated' which I have thought useful in a way. I certainly appreciate all the suggestions I'm receiving!
