Ensign Jeremy Lister (1752 - 1836) was a British officer in the 10th Regiment of Foot during the early days of the American Revolution. His journal was later published as Concord fight: Being so much of the narrative of Ensign Jeremy Lister of the 10th Regiment of Foot as pertains to his services on the 19th of April, 1775.

Lister was born at Shibden Hall, England in 1752. In 1770 Lister was commissioned an ensign with the 10 Regiment of Foot in England and sailed for Canada. After being stationed at Fort Niagara he saw action at Battle of Lexington and Concord. He was wounded at North Bridge. He stayed with the 10th until 1783.

Jeremy and his future wife, Rebecca, had a daughter Anne Lister, who is known for her diary writings in the early 19th Century.

Lister's journal with its tales of desertion during the American Revolution was the inspiration for the 2006 comedy film The Deserter, which follows the story of a 10th Regiment drummer.
