Glad to be of some help!
I am researching my Manley family which hails from Devon and Somerset.
I run a website which has various bits of Manley stuff on but also quite a lot of tree detail on the Manleys from my line
One interesting thing to note is that somewhere on this board someone mentions Manley of Spofforth Hall being linked with Manley in Cheshire.
I think this may be erroneous as I’m also part of the Manley DNA group and this has shown the Devon Manleys to be a completely seperate family from the Cheshire lot.
Of course the Manleys of Spofforth could have originally hailed from Cheshire and moved to Devon/Somerset, but this seems unlikely given the huge number of Manleys already in Devon/Somerset.
