According to my research it is. I have John Maniere (believe he spelled it Manear in his will) married Ann Dew-they had William Manier who married Anne Stone and their son John A. Manier married Elizabeth Jackson (parents of Susanna Manier who married Ebenezer Frost VanCleave). I wish I knew how the original spelling was. I've seen everything but it looks like most of the family somewhere just dropped the last 'e' if the original spelling was Maniere, which is just a guess. Now that I've seen that will I think the original surname could have also been Manor/Mannors, etc. whereas before I thought Maniere must have been the original name since several people in my family used it as a middle name.
