Manny Early Origins



The surname Manny was first found in Masny in Hainaut, France where Walter De Manny, 1st Baron Manny, KG (1310–1372), voyaged to England as a soldier of fortune and esquire of Queen Philippa in 1327. He settled in the London area founding Charterhouse and took part in the Scottish wars of King Edward III, eventually rising to be in command of the English fleet. He was later captured and thrown into prison at Saint-Jean-d'Angély but was able to escape. Upon his eventual return to England, he founded Charterhouse in London in 1349. His daughter Anne Hastings, Countess of Pembroke and 2nd Baroness Manny (1355–1384) succeeded him in 1375 and shortly before her death, she was invested as a Lady of the Garter.

The Great Migration



In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Mannys to arrive on North American shores:
