Re: William Whichcote Manners

Hello Shirley,
Years have passed, but I am still attempting to unearth the elusive origins of my great-great grandfather, Joseph John Manners.
JJM's first appearance in any record is his London marriage in 1866, when he claimed his father was a soldier named David Manners. Subsequent census returns state that Joseph was born at Chatham, Kent, in about 1840.
Family legend claims his descent from Lady Huntingtower, a portrait of whom wss retained within living memeory, but is now lost!
Despite now decades of research, JJM's origins remain an utter mystery, as does the existence of his soldier father. I return to you as your William Whichcote Manners was born and died in France, the son of a soldier. Is it possible that a Jospeh or a David has now appeared in your studies?
In gratitude for your indulgence,
David C.R. Manners
