Don't know if this will help you any, but I have a book called "Index to the Tithables of Loudoun County, Virginia and to Slaveholders and Slaves 1758-1786", compiled & edited by Margaret Lail Hopkins which mentions some Lesters. The numbers indicated the year(s) in which the individual appeared in the annual list of titheables:

c=Cameron Parish; s=Shelburne Parish

Lester (Lister)
Abner 63, 65-66
John 63, 65-66, 68, 72s, 76s-77s
Peter 61
Samuel 63, 65-66
Thomas 64-65
William 63

In the section entitled "Slaveholders and Slaves":

Lester, John
Dinah 63, 65
James 63, 65, 68
Peter 66

Best wishes!
