    I finally found the entry Ann found post #14 and I didn't get distracted (well not too much).

    Nothing else though, I think we have all that is online, for him - which is miles more than what I had when I started this thread.

    Thanks again.

    I’m so pleased you found it and didn’t get too distracted along the way :D

    I’ve had another look but came to the same conclusion as you MM, there ain’t anything else to be found. Any more lost Manners :reading:

    Do you really want to know?

    Abraham (senior) was a twin - his brother William I have zilch on.
    There are a lot of William Manners about, but if you are up for looking.....

    The twins were born 3/7/1808 and baptised 12/9/1813 St Alphage Deptford
    illegitimate twin sons of Mary Manners (and I have nothing on her either;)).
    She is living in Newhouse Yard, and I suspect the baptism was something to do with her claiming some sort of parish relief - she is listed as pauper on the baptism entry.

    Over to you -if you fancy a challenge:nailbiting:

    You are a glutton for punishment - but thank you:D

    OK I think I admit defeat :sceptical: The Poor Law stuff for Greenwich doesn't appear to have survived that far back, so there's nothing to look at.

    There are two burials on Ancestry which might be those for William and Mary - both in Norwood Cemetery Lambeth.

    Did they both move to Lambeth? I had a quick look at the Lambeth Settlement Records, but they are vast (I've had cause to look at them before) and without knowing when they might have moved there......

    I've tried to locate either of them in the 1861 census, but no luck :( So, I'll hand the ball back to you :rolleyes:

    Ann you have been an absolute diamond with helping me with my Manners, and the newspaper report for Abraham's death is just wonderful, more than I could ever have hoped for.

    William could well have been a mariner (like Abraham in his youth), so could have ended up anywhere in the world.
    Ideally I would like to find who Mary was and where she came from, but I know that is going to be almost impossible. She is my 3 x greatgrandmother.

    {-(^^)-} and thank you.

    I enjoyed the chase :) I’ll keep my eyes open for Mary Manners, she’s got to be out there somewhere.
