In Reply to: MANNERS AUSTRALIA!!! by Karan Manners of 317

Hi Karan
there are many Manners relatives in Australia. A reunion was held in 1981 and a book "Passage of no return" published at that time. I have just obtained a copy of that, and may be able to help you, with a bit more info about your g grandfather - dob, place of birth/death, your grandfather/father. I've found a Stephen Henry (known as Harry - there a many 'Henry's, so it may have been not uncommon for Harry to be used) Manners in the book, dob 13/1/1889, but this doesn't trace through to a Karan that I can see.
I found your message when looking for info on the Manners family, as I am going to visit Belvoir Castle in the UK next year, where a distant relative, David Manners, the 11th Duke of Rutland lives(I'm a descendant of Sir Thomas Manners, the first Earl of Rutland). You can find the castle on the net if you're interested - it's a bit of a hoot finding you have a real castle in the family!
I look forward to hearing from you.
