Notes for John MANLEY

We continue to research records for proof of immigration into the United States. Most recent research shows one John Manly arrived 11 Jul 1678 as one of the “First Settlers of SC” in Charles Town.

During the period of 1733 to 1793 many land records exist for John Manly consisting of some 13 tracks totaling 8190 acres — in 1733, a sale of 150 acres on Little River, Cravens County, SC. It is our opinion that this property was probably a Grant from the King of England to settle population into the Carolina’s.

We find the names John Manly and John Manly Jr in the year 1787. Also the Will of one William Manley in 1799 was recorded [wife: Elizabeth – children: Joseph, Washington, Ephraim, Jeremiah, Vincent and Nancy] . We assume that John Jr [who is mentioned as Generation 1] and William, who died in 1799, are children of an older John Manly. There may actually exist three generations of John Manly’s in this early US history [1678-1808] of South Carolina. Land records mention the above Little River, Ryan’s Branch of the Little River, and Rabourns Creek – all near Laurens County SC.
