Notes for William* MANNING
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
William2 Manning (Wm.1) b. about 1614 in England, came to the Colony of Massachusetts Bay in, or before the year 1634, and, settling in the latter year in Cambridge, made that town his home throughout the remainder of his life. He early purchased a homestead and other land, and engaged in business as a merchant; a calling he followed throught his life. This enterprise was not, however, limited to the mere selling of goods, for he owned a warehouse and boat-house on a canal to which boats had free access. Under date of 1631, June 14, the records say: "Mr. John Maisters hath undertaken to make a passage from Charles River to the New Town, twelve foot broad and seven foot deep; for which the Court promiseth him satisfaction, according as the charges thereof shall amount unto." Mr. Paige, in his history of Cambridge, adds: "This canal still exists on the westerly side of College Warf, from Charles River nearly to South Street. It was a natural creek, enlarged and deepened thus far, from which point, turning westerly, it extended along the southerly and westerly sides of South and Elliot Streets and cross Brattle Street, where the town ordered a causeway and foot-bridge to be constructed, Jan. 4, 1635-6." To the warehouse, then, by way of the canal, boats came from Charles river, the wide stream which flows between Cambridge and Boston; but from what point they started does not appear. The history of Cambridge says of Mr. Manning that he was "somewhat concerned in navigation," and there is ample evidence of this fact, but the extent of this branch of his enterprise cannot be ascertained. When he died he owned "half" of a boat which, with the sails and oars, was appraised at £4. This shows that the craft was of sufficient size and importance to be propelled by sails when wind was to be had; the oars, it is to be presumed, being for use when passing through the canal. In this boat merchandise was conveyed, but from what point and for how long a distance has not been learned. He constructed his own warf by the boathouse. Under date of 1651-2, Jan. 7, the records say: "William Manning is granted liberty by the inhabitants of the town, at a general meeting, to make a warf out of the head of the creek, towards Mr. Pelham's barn, to come as high as the great pine stump, and range with Mr. Phelham's fence next the high street into town." Again, 1654, Apr. 11, is this record: "The Townsmen do allow William Manning five pound of of ye pnt [present] Town Rate upon condidtion that he make a Sufficient wharffe from his ware house to ye Lower part of his land that he hath there Ditched in, so as to keep the tide off the highway, and to maintaine the same in like good condition for twenty years next ensuing the date hereof." The warehouse was situated at what is now the southwest corner of Dunster and South streets. Early in life he became one of the most prominent and trusted citizens of the town, and was often called to public offices of trust. He was elected highway surveyor, 1651, and, the same year, "to size casks," or as gauger; constable, 1652, '66, '68, '75 and '79, and selectman, 1652, '66-70, '72, '75-81, '83, or a total of 15 years. The last-named office carried with it the management of the town's business affairs, and that he was so often elected is evidence that his fidelity and sagacity were highly appreciated. He was a member of the grand jury of the Court of Sessions in 1686, and again in 1688, and in 1675 was one of the Jury of Grand Inquest of the County Court. His name frequently appears on committees to view lands and highways and determine what should be done in the several cases. In 1660 the records say: "Edward Oakes & William Manning are chosen to joyne wth the committee formerly chosen, he eithth of Decmr, 1656, for the prosecuting & effecting a Bridge over Charles River." The Acts and Resolves of the State, under date of "11th 8ber 1670" have the petition of John Stedman and William Manning, acting for Cambridge, in which they represent said bridge as being in a decaying condition and ask for relief from the General Court, which thereupon allowed a schedule of tolls. In 1669 the town records say: "At a meeting of the Select Men Mr William Manning and petter Towne was appointed to agree with workmen to take downe the Scholehouse and set it up againe and to cary the stones in the cellar to the place whare the house for the minister is to be built." In 1675 "William Manning, Nathaniel Hancock, John Jackson and John Gove are appointed by the selectmen to have inspection into families that there be no bye drinking, or any misdemeanor whereby sin is committed, and persons from their houses unseasonably." Eighteen different instances have been found in which Mr. Manning was concerned in the settlement of the estates of his fellow citizens, either as executor, administrator, or in some other capacity. He was one of the appraisers of the estate of Rev. Jonathan Mitchell, the third pastor at Cambridge, 1668, and also, of Rev. Urian Oakes' estate in 1681. The inventory of the latter case is in William's own writing. He was a freeman in 1643; hence, was a early as that date a member of the church. The records of the Cambridge church of that period are meagre and do not record dates of admissions, but a list of members in the time of Rev. Mr. Mitchell has, among other entries, the following: "William Manning and Dorothy his wife both in full communion. Their children, Hannah, Samuel, Sarah, John, Mary, all born and baptized in this church.

After Mr. Mitchell's death in 1668 Mr. Manning was selected by the church to go to England and prevail upon Rev. Urian Oakes to come to Cambridge and accept the vacant pastorate, and this mission he performed. The old records say: "An account of seaverall providencis of God to the Church of Cambrigd, after the death of that reverant and eminent man Mr. Jonathan Mitchell, pastor of the church, and the actings of the church for supply in the ministry. After sume time of seeking god by prayer, the lord was pleased to guide the Church to make theare application to Mr Vrian Oakes in old England which to further the same theare was a letter sent from the Church with A mesenger namly Mr William Maning with a letter alsoe sent by seuerall Magistrates and Ministers to Invite him to come over and be an Oficer amongst vs which he after Counsill and advice did Except."

The sickness and death of Mr. Oakes' wife, and his own ill health, delayed his coming until 1671, in which year he was ordained at Cambridge.

At this point the record says: "August the 9th, 1671. Delivered to William Manning sixty pounds in silver to pay toward the transportation of Mr. Vrian Oakes his familie & goods & other disbursements." Mr. Oakes not only remained pastor until his death, but was elected President of Harvard College.

In 1670 Mr. Manning was appointed with an associate "to catechise the youth" of the town.

William Manning made a real estate purchase in 1646 which is thus described in the Cambridge Proprietors' Records: "William Manning Junr bought of Henry Addams one dwelling house wth about halfe arood of land Edward Shepard East John Trumbull south water-street West, marsh-land north." He also had several grants of land from the town, when "divisions" were generally make to the inhabitants -- three acres in 1662; twenty acres in 1663, twenty-five acres in 1664 and 1665, etc. These grants he disposed of before his death, though there is no deed or other record to show when or to whom they were sold. He was one of the inhabitants of Cambridge to whom the Shawshin, or Billerica, territory was granted in 1644, he being allotted sixty acres, and who joined in the "great deed" of 1650, conveying it to the Billerica settlers. Paige's history of Cambridge says that William "inherited the homestead" of his father. The authority for the statement has not been found. If he at one time possessed it he must have sold it by a deed never recorded, for, at the time of his death, he owned only one house, and this was at the southeast corner of Dunster and South streets, opposite to his warehouse. This was the same homestead that he bought of Henry Adams, the name of Water street having been changed to Dunster, and Marsh Land (or Lane) to South street. After his decease the premises passed to his son Samuel and in 1698, to his grandson Samuel.

William Manning married, at a date not learned, Dorothy ___. Her maiden name is not known, despite a long continued and widely-estended search for light on the subject. She must have been born in England, or at least, before the settlement of this country.

Mr. Manning left no will, and his estate was duly appraised by three men, of whom one was Deacon Cooper, long his associate in the buildings g of Harvard College, as well as in Town affairs.
