Steve, Wonderful blog. Question:
John m: Lydia Richardson - a couple of places shows 1636 but in notes elsewhere there is a record at Norfolk County dtd 4-6-1660 for bann of matrimony for them. This means most of the identified children are John's by his first wife who other researchers have identiified as Mary White.
What do you think??

Hello, Steve. My dad has recently given me my family's lineage from John Manning (b. 1615). I believe our lineage separates from yours at John Jr.'s. My great, great, great grandfather was Marcum (sp?) Manning, who was John Jr's son. I was very excited to find your site and learn more about my ancestors.

Greetings Steve,
I too am researching my Manning Lineage, I descend from Annis Manning (daughter of Moses II) m. Edward Jackson Jr. I have found many sources for the Manning Line but am perplexed because I keep finding Richard Manning b. 1544 son of John Manning and Agnes Petley. According to your site here and Family Trees John Manning died in 1542 and Agnes in 1533. How is it that Richard was born in 1544? Have you looked in to this? I would appreciate any information you can offer me. Thank you,
Beth Wheeler
