Family History

We continue to research records for proof of immigration into the United States. Most recent research shows one John Manly arrived 11 Jul 1678 as one of the “First Settlers of SC” in Charles Town.

During the period of 1733 to 1793 many land records exist for John Manly consisting of some 13 tracks totaling 8190 acres — in 1733, a sale of 150 acres on Little River, Cravens County, SC. It is our opinion that this property was probably a Grant from the King of England to settle population into the Carolina’s.

We find the names John Manly and John Manly Jr in the year 1787. Also the Will of one William Manley in 1799 was recorded [wife: Elizabeth – children: Joseph, Washington, Ephraim, Jeremiah, Vincent and Nancy] . We assume that John Jr [who is mentioned as Generation 1] and William, who died in 1799, are children of an older John Manly. There may actually exist three generations of John Manly’s in this early US history [1678-1808] of South Carolina. Land records mention the above Little River, Ryan’s Branch of the Little River, and Rabourns Creek – all near Laurens County SC.

  1. Hi! This is very exciting as I have been trying to research information on John Manley. I actually teach in Ware Shoals, SC which is probably either where he lived or close to it. My grandfather is Marvin Manley and John Manley is his great, great, great grandfather. My son’s middle name is Manley. Obviously, I’m excited to learn more information. Let me know if I can be of any assistance down here to you.

  2. I have never heard of your Grandfather. I am from Ware Shoals and also a granddaughter from John Manly. Who is your father?

  3. I believe I am a descendant of at least one of the John Manlys, through son William and his wife Elizabeth Heath. I’ve been trying to get the Manlys straight.

    WILLIAM MANLEY
    Birth 1750 • North Carolina or South Carolina
    Death 1799 • Greenville, South Carolina

    m. ELIZABETH HEATH 1748–1808

    Children:
    Jeremiah Manly 1769–
    JOSEPH MANLY 1771–1838
    Nancy Manly 1773–1840
    Ephraim Manly 1774–
    Washington Manley 1775–
    Vincent Tapp Manley 1778–1846
    Daughter Manley Evans –1799

    Joseph Manly 1771–1838 m. Margaret Hardy Wilson
    Ann Manly 1809-1856 m. James Litteral Briggs

    I’m not sure which John Manly was the father of William. All my information before William is from other people’s genealogies and pretty iffy.

    I also don’t have parents of James L. Briggs, said to have been born in Virginia. I believe he and Ann Manly were probably married in Giles County, Tennessee.
