Dear Susan, I too am descended from Lord William Manners. Lord William had five sons and three daughters with Corbetta Smythe. John, Thomas, William, Russell and Robert (my relative) and Augusta, Frances and Caroline. As far as I know he and Corbetta were never married. We were left by Lord Williams great great granddaughter Augusta Manners Young a family chart.
"Rev. Thomas Manners, Rector of Ayleston 1771."
I live in Toronto and at the Robarts Library today I found in John Nichols County of Leicester re Thomas:
Rev.Thomas 1767 Vol. iv page 27
"The lordship of Ayleston contains 1900 statute acres; of which about 1200 were open and common fields till 1767, when an act was passed for their enclosure; in which John duke of Rutland (his uncle) is described as lord of the manor and patron of the rectory of Ayleston; and the Rev. Thomas Manners, as rector, entitled to all the great and small tithes (except of certain old enclosures) and also entitled to certain glebe lands: and John marquis of Granby was the nowner and proprietor of all the remaining common fields and unenclosed lands."
Best, Connie
