I am very interested in where or from who you got the following : "Manzer family is of Germanic origin probably from SW Germany. Prior to 1635, one or more Manzers went to England. On May 2, 1635, James Manzer, born 1608, sailed from England to the Barbadoes on the Alexander. About 1760 one or more of his descendants moved to Long Island and settled near what is now the Long Island end of the Brooklyn Bridge. On July 5, 1778, five Manzers joined the DeLancey Brigade, 2nd battalion. They were Barnet, Daniel, Christopher, Martin and John. In 1784, the five came to Canada: Daniel to Quebec and the other four to New Brunswick. About 1810, Daniel and his family (about 7 or 8) went to U. S. A. Martin had one son Lawrence who is believed to have gone to U. S., probably Philadelphia. Rest of Martin's family is believed to have been daughters who married in New Brunswick. Christopher had no family. Barnet, Christopher and John were known brothers. Martin and Daniel not known, could have been cousins. A great many of Barnet's family moved to the U. S."
Barnet Manzer is my 4th Great Grandfather.Any additional information or a contact name concerning these 5 brothers would be appreciated.
