Manning Family | Gilliams of Virginia

Allied Families: The MANNING Family
Updated March 25, 2016

James Gilliam of Littleton Parish married Catherine MANNING, the widow of Charles MANNING of New Kent. James' Will mentioned Samuel MANNING and was witnessed by Lucy MANNING. James' son James named his first born Charles MANNING Gilliam and a security for his Ordinary was Nathaniel MANNING.

It appears that a relationship between the Gilliams and MANNINGs existed prior to James marrying the widow MANNING.

Below is an outline of records relating to Virginia MANNINGs, chronologically arranged by county.

It should be noted that the name MANNING is spelt in various ways including but not limited to: MANNIN, MANNEN, Manion, Mannion, and even Manner and Mannay.
