She is to have (1) his house and grounds etc. in the parish of St. Clement in Cambridge, (2) his profits in certain houses in Longlane near London, and (3) his houses in Spittlehouse End in London. Property in (1) and (3) is his wife’s only during her widowhood, after which (1) goes to his son John ANDREWES and his heirs, and (3) goes to his son Francis ANDREWES and his heirs. Property in (2) goes to his son William ANDREWES and his heirs, upon his majority. To his sons Richard and George Andrewes, 150 each at 21. To his daughters Easter, Elizabeth and Clara, 150 each at 21 or on their marriage days, as their mother decides. To his son John ANDREWES the stock of 25 in the Virginia Company, and 10 yearly during his mother’s widowhood from the property in St. Clement’s parish. To his son William ANDREWES 50, when that sum is to be paid by his master’s bond. To his son Francis ANDREWES 100 at 21. All other goods to his wife, except 5 to John YAXLEY and Robert PRANCE, his friends and overseers of his will. A dead son’s or daughter’s share shall be divided equally among surviving sons or daughters. If his wife Easter remarries, within a month before her marriage she must give bond of 2000 marks for execution of the will; otherwise she is to lose her benefits under the will and be replaced as executor by his son William ANDREWES, who shall give the same bond. Signed 7 Sept. 1609. Witnesses John YAXLEY, Robert SPICER, Robert PRANCE. A codicil of 21 March 1610 notes that John ANDREWES, understanding that his son John ANDREWES has died in Virginia, acquits his wife of an annual payment of 10 to this son. The 50 put into the Virginia Company ( 25 in his own name and 25 in his son John’s name) is to go his son William. The houses in Longlane near London have been sold for 180 to John MEREDITH; William ANDREWES is to have this sum, or else the houses. The codicil is witnessed by Robert PRANCE. Probate at London on 4 June 1616 to Hester ANDREWES, widow and executrix of the deceased. (Abstracted in Virginia Historical Magazine XI, 155.)

Plea for Help from Jeri BeitelI am trying to find the children of Marcom Manning and Kezia Ballentine’s son William 1776.I have been searching for a particular Reuben Manning and have been having difficulty because

of all of the Reuben Mannings born at the same time. None of the more known common ones

fit my scenario. You can help me if you know this William’s children I would be really grateful.

At least then I won’t be running down the same rabbit hole over and over.

4. Mary Manning Harper
5. Elizabeth Manning
6. Margaret Manning

note from Don Pace Manning:
Hi, Sally,
Based on a will, this person thinks Abena Wilkinson Whitfield could be the mother of William A. Manning.
"I found a record in Pitt County.  A will record for Benjamin Whitfield. 
It plainly states that Albena Whitfield is his mother.
She left him in NC and moved to TN with her second husband.
Either his father was also a Manning/Cherry or she left him with the Mannings when she moved. First husband was William Nelson.
Second husband was Obadiah Carson. Roderick Cherry, son of Samuel M. Cherry, took the three Whitfield children, including Albena,  away from Benjamin Whitfield because Benjamin was incompetent.
There was a big land court case and that's how I found the record.
It's very complicated.
The Bryans were involved and a Whitehurst--They go back to the marriage between William F. Bryan and Mary Manning, d/o Reuben Manning and Diana McCoy, Reuben being the s/o John A. Manning and Ann Deal.
Don Pace Manning.
ps  We now have this up on my Family Tree in  Since my YDNA is G-L140 (Cherry), the father has to be a Cherry.  William A. Manning was born May 11, 1827, in Martin County, we all thought.
My best guess for the father would be the s/o William Cherry and Delaney Smith.  This now appears to be the new mystery!
"It's possible Willis/Wallace Manning was W.A. Manning's father."

  1. Hello,,, this is more in the way of Questions. I’m looking for that needle in the Haystack! JUST REVEALED by DNA in 2010: In November 2005 I, Ralph Biggs was HANDED the proverbial “Biggs Skeleton” no one talked about. {I had my eyes OPENED WIDER!} My source provided No Proof and he passed away without revealing His Source to me. * I KNEW it HAD to BE TRUE, but had No Proof and family would not talk. – In 2010, I CHOSE to LEARN the Truth and see if I could make that “Skeleton” DANCE by DNA! * HE DID! I have the Biggs name in Name Only; My Blood will Bleed as: Manning. That “Skeleton” stated my Sixth Generation Ancestor back, a “David Biggs” born 1777 to 1780 in North Carolina was indeed BORN: David MANNING – who had ACCEPTED/Chose to use/Adopt/Carry Forward the Biggs name from a STEPFATHER. – Today 2019 Three men from this “Biggs” group document out as: Manning Per DNA and “WE” solidified into the “Manning Family Tree” in 2014 by a Match through Marcum Manning’s Lineal Line! * I have a MYSTERY to Solve from my standpoint. Is there any Manning that would care to “wade into this subject”?
