Your Lysters might have descended from Leonard or Richard Lyster of Rowton Castle, Salop. Salop is an abbreviation for Shropshire, England.

Rowton Castle is currently an upscale hotel. The original exterior still remains; however, the interior is newly redone as the origianl interior lay in ruin.

The Lysters were living in Rowton Castle as early as the 1400's. They possess a coat-of-arms. They were members of the Gentry/the landed class.

The Lysters were wealthy linen drapers.

If you need any more information about the Lysters, then please do not hesistate to contact me.
