About Manning Family Tree
Please sign in to see more.
Hi, My name is David Manning and I am the webmaster of this site.  I am descended  from 
 the first family of Henry Daniel Manning who emigrated to NZ, arriving on The Egmont  on 23 December 1856.  He and other family members settled in Canterbury.

I am grateful to many people for the information that has enabled me to get this far  with the family history.  Given that some of our ancestors seemed to enjoy producing  children there are a lot of Manning lines.  Of late I have been prompted to gather as  much information as I can about more recent generations as I feel the family links  will become more and more difficult to piece together. If you have any information or  can fill in any gaps I would appreciate hearing from you.  If you have the visitor  password and know of other family members who may be interested or who you think may  be able to provide additional information or corrections please feel free to pass it  on.

Much of the earlier information was provided by a group of researchers who produced  the booklet "The Manning Link (Suffolk to New Zealand)". I am grateful to the Late  Joan Manning-Chambers for providing me with a copy of this material, those others  including Madeline Manning and Margaret Manning who contributed to it and especially  Athol Allpress who has provided substantial amounts of information and who was one of  the research group. I am also grateful to Ted Manning who has generously shared the  photos he got from My Great Aunt Meida before I could get my hands on them.

I would especially like to thank Jeni Palmer who has kindly shared her vast amount of  work and filled in literally hundreds of gaps, also Vikki Merriman who is descended  from Evan Griffiths and who has provided all the information relating to the  Griffiths family.  She has also assisted with information regarding the link with the  Manning Family via the marriage of Emily Griffiths to Edward Harold Manning in 1895.

Please understand that this is a work in progress and I have a lot more photos and  dialogue to put on the site.

Cheers and thanks
