JOHN MANNERS of Blyth, Northumberland, England
I am researching my ancestor Esther Manners who married John Dalmahoy. According to the Earsdon parish registers, they were married December 24,1801.

In searching for her birth record, the Earsdon baptism records show: October 19, 1777, Esther, daughter of John Manners and Mary Airkill of South Blyth illegitimate.
Now I am researching her father, John Manners of South Blyth. The following entries were found in the Bishop's transcripts of the Earsdon parish registers:
December 29, 1790. Marriage by Licence. John Manners and Dorothy Richardson.
December 12, 1797. Burial. Mary Manners late Donkerly of So. Blyth, widow of the late John Manners, sailmaker of So. Blyth, died December 9th, buried December 12th, aged 71 years.
October 22, 1806. Burial. Mary Ann Manners of So. Blyth, daughter of John Manners, sailmaker, by his wife Mary Gillespy, died October 19th, buried October 22nd, aged 6 weeks.
February 15, 1811. Burial. Frances Manners of Blyth, relict of John Manners, husbandman, died February 13th, buried February 15th, at Blyth, aged 65 years.
Does anybody know where and when this John Manners died? Is there a monumental inscription in one of the Blyth cemeteries?
It would be nice to have contact with other persons researching this family. I am interested in exchanging information and working together on the John Manners branch to possibly extend further back.
