Maningham Early Origins



The surname Maningham was first found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Manningham in the West Riding.

But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1285 when Roger de Manningham held estates in that shire.

Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland.
