Hello - I thought I'd post the email I sent you here just in case you didn't receive it.
Thanks for your reply.You have the same info that I do.I have a copy of Samuel Manners and Elizabeth Gaunt's marriage certificate but Samuel's father's name isn't given.I am guessing this is because he is illegitimate. Do you know if this is true or not?I thought I had a generation back further but I don't.How do you relate to James Gaunt Manners?My partner is his Gt Gt Gt grandson through his daughter Maude E Manners who married Robert Presant in September quarter 1890 St Saviour, Southwark (Counties of London and Surrey).Robert worked as a publican in 1901 living in Lambeth with his family.
I know the following children of James Gaunt Manners.Could you tell me who I'm missing?
Maude E Annie L Martha E Rose E Alice M Henry E G Francis E
Do have any other info on James's family or parents?I really hit a brick wall when I couldn't find Samuel's fathers name though I haven't yet traced the church records to see if this gives the name.My partners family were convinced they were/are somehow related to the Duke of Rutland but I haven't managed to confirm this as of yet.
