2. Obituary 2712, 1 Nov 1839 in Norfolk Co., Virginia
Died suddenly on Thursday night, at 11 o'clock, Mrs. Mary Virginia Brown, fifth daughter of Wm. Manning, dec'd, and wife of Mr. John D. Brown, aged about 18. In the death of this young lady, the circle in which she moved has been deprived of one who possessed all the virtues that beautify and adorn her sex. But six short weeks have elapsed since she entered into the matrimonial state, and she is now numbered with the dead--thus verifying the truth of the Scriptures, "that in the midst of life we are in death." Painful as is the present bereavement to surviving friends, in a more thoughtful mood and calmer hours, they, too, will not wish to recall one who was taken from the world ere she had seen the evil that was in it, or earth has profaned what was born for the skies." She has left a mother, sister and husband, and many friends and acquaintances, to bemoan the loss which her death has occasioned.

Notes
General:
This seems to be dau. of William B. Manning. Problem: mother Sophronia would have been only 4 at birth if mother's birth year of 1817 is correct. Would they have named two daughters Mary?

Your Commissioner reports to Court that Jas D. Brady, guardian of M. W. Manning exhibited before him a statement of all the money which he as such guardian had received, become chargeable with or had disbursed from the 31st day of December 1873 to the 31st day of December 1875, together with the vouchers for such disbursements.

The account is supported by satisfactory vouchers and is herewith returned. It will be seen by reference to the account that a part of the principal of the ward estate has been expended for his support, the commr allowed the same because the estate was small, the income totally insufficient and the expenditures considering the condition of the ward, were absolutely necessary for his support and comfort.

Events
1. Residence
In 1636, less than three decades after the settling of Jamestown, New Norfolk was formed from Elizabeth City shires of the Colony of Virginia. In 1637, New Norfolk County was divided into Lower Norfolk Country and Upper Norfolk Country. Lower Norfolk County encompasses the area that is now the cities of Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth and Virginia Beach. Lower Norfolk Country's first court was held on May 15, 1637, and was presided over by Captain Adam Thoroughgood.

Chesapeake is the most direct descendent of Lower Norfolk County. The records housed in care of the Chesapeake's Clerk of the Circuit Court are the oldest records held by any of the four cities that were once Lower Norfolk County; they date back to 1637 and the first court held in the jurisdiction.

Notes
Death Notes:
"Died 1798, Mr. Matthew Manning, son of John Manning in the 81st year of his years. Many years a sailor. Settled on land on Julians Creek in Norfolk County, Va where his father and father's father had lived and died before him." From Mary Ann Amelia Manning Bible
General:
Research for this generation and above should be regarded as very tentative.
Research:
*note: Want to investigate the Manning-Culpeper connection a little further. I suspect that Matthew Manning Sr. (RIN 214) and Margaret Culpeper (RIN 3084), daughter of Thomas Culpeper (3073) and sister of Ann Kay (RIN 3086), are husband and wife.
Evidence seems to point in that direction due to the following findings:
1. Matthew Manning Sr. was a witness to Thomas Culpeper's will (1785)
2. Matthew Manning Sr. inherits from Ann Kay (RIN 3086) a looking glass in 1791
3. Matthew's son, Matthew Manning Jr. is a witness in Ann Kay's (RIN 3086) will dated 1791
4. Matthew Manning Sr.'s will dated 1801 has as witnesses: Thomas W. Culpeper & Robert B. Culpeper (Thomas Culpeper (RIN 3073) who died in 1785, names sons, Thomas & Robert Culpeper, who would be brothers to Margaret Manning & Ann Kay.
5. Matthew Manning Sr. will dated 1801 has no mention of a wife, therefore his wife probably died before the will was made. If Margaret Culpeper is Matthew's wife, that would put her death between 1791 & 1801
6. Matthew Manning Jr. is an appraisers in the estate of John Culpeper (RIN 3078) in 1810. John is the brother to Margaret Manning.

I believe the circumstanial evidence is pointing in this direction. Would like to look at other documents for the children of Thomas Culpeper (RIN 3073) to see if Matthew Manning Sr. or Jr. were involved as either witness, executor, etc. These documents could possibly name as relationship between these people. They appear to be closely tied together. 168,282,1585

Events
1. Residence
Mary Porter told me that the Manning "day farm" is now Academy Park in Portsmouth, Virginia. It was owned by Pearson and White and bought by Hugh Barkley; 240 acres. This was "Mannington." [It may be that the plantation was Mannington.] Also that Manning graves were on Paradise Creek, past Cradock on Rt. 17.
2. Residence 2744, "Mannington" in Portsmouth, Portsmouth (city), Virginia, USA
Note: This is an ad listed in local newspaper for the rental of "Mannington". This gives a description of the property. The referral of Mannington being good for the business of "trucking" has nothing to do with vehicles, but instead means the business of trading goods & services in place of cash.

For Rent---I wish to rent out on shares the ensuing year, to some one well acquainted with the business of Trucking, the Farm called
"MANINGTON"
Situated about five miles from Portsmouth, on the road between that place and the village of Deep Creek--This Farm is in very good order, well fenced and well drained. Every acre in cultivation will be manured this year, which will enhance its value the coming season.---The soil is well adapted to the purposes of trucking. I think as a market farm it is equal to any in the surrounding country.
Julian's Creek is about a quarter of a mile from the Farm, on which there are several landings at distances of not more than a half mile, where boats can take off marketing for shipment.
The short distance to Portsmouth, and goodness of the road, render it very convenient for daily market.
There is also attached to the Farm a very fine Orchard of Peaches and one of Apples.
The Mansion House will be reserved, but there is a very comfortable Dwelling in the yard, which can be occupied by the Farmer.

28. Meeting 2760, meeting to oppose the election of Gen. Andrew Jackson for President, 21 Nov1827 in Portsmouth, Norfolk Co., Virginia
Herald--21 November 1827
Norfolk County Meeting
At a numerous meeting of the citizens of Norfolk County, opposed to the election of Gen. Andrew Jackson to the Presidency of the United States, convened at the Court House in Portsmouth, on Monday the 19th of Nov. 1827, the meeting being called to order, the Rev. Jesse Nicholson, a soldier of the revolution, was appointed Chairman, and John A. Chandler, Secretary.
The Chairman explained briefly the objects of the Assembly, and Holt Wilson, Esq. offered for adoption the following resolutions:
Resolved, 1st: That we entirely concur in the preamble and resolutions adopted by our fellow citizens at a meeting held on the 3rd inst. at Hickory Ground, in this county, and that we will use all fair and honorable means to promote the object of the said meeting;
Resolved, 2dly: That the Delegates appointed at the meeting to represent this county in the proposed anti-Jackson Convention to be held in Richmond on the 2d Tuesday in January next, be, and are hereby appointed Delegates in behalf of this meeting to the said Convention:
Resolved, 3dly: That ____ be and they are hereby appointed Delegates on behalf of this meeting to unite with the Delegates appointed at Hickory Ground to represent this county in the anti-Jackson Convention to be held in Richmond on the 2d Tuesday in January next:
Resolved, 4thly: That the gentlemen hereafter named, be added to the Corresponding Committee, appointed at Hickory Ground, whose duty it shall be to act in conjunction with the said Committee in securing the object of the said meeting.
The resolutions having been read, Gen. Robert B. Taylor, addressed the meeting in an animated, impressive and convincing argument, in which he exhibited the anti-republican nature of the caucus nomination by the Legislature, and the necessity of counteracting it by a ticket formed by Delegates elected for that purpose by the people in their primary assemblies. He then took a view of the biography of General Jackson, and while he extended to him the full need of praise and honor, for his glorious defense of his country, he at the same time exposed in bold relief his disqualifications from high civil office, as exhibited by his acts in almost every public station he has filled.
After General Taylor had concluded, the resolutions were again read and adopted unanimously, and the following gentlemen appointed Delegates under the third resolution: Col. William Wright, Thomas Talbot, Esq., and William B. Manning, Esq., and the following gentlemen appointed a committee under the fourth resolution:
John Thompson, Holt Wilson, Tapley Webb, George M. Bain, George Webb, Thos. Edwards, David Reynolds, John Collins Sr., H. Pendleton, Wm. Benthall, Robert Peed, James Reed, Beverly Bayton, John Talbot, Jesse Newcomb, Abel Llewelleng, George Wilson, John Gay, James Carr, Matthew Manning, Sr., William White, David Ruth, John P. Leigh, Jesse Nicholson
Resolved, 5thly: That the proceedings of this meeting be signed by the Chairman and Secretary, and published in the newspapers of the Borough of Norfolk.

33. Obituary 2741,2764, Norfolk & Portsmouth Herald, 13 Jan 1837 in Portsmouth, Portsmouth (city), Virginia, USA
At his residence in Norfolk County, on Monday the 9th inst. MATTHEW MANNING, Esq. in the 67 year of his age. In the death of Mr. Manning, our community has lost one of its most valuable members. In his intercourse with society he was honest and sincere; just and benevolent, and urbane and courteous, and in his family, he was kind and indulgent; rendering his presence desireable, and his company pleasant. In the year 1805, he embraced religion, and united himself with the Methodist Episcopal Church, in which he held the office of leader for many years, and of which he lived and died a worthy member, but he is gone to a more enduring inheritance, while his children are left to weep; yet they do not weep "without hope".

9. Poem 2776, Verse to daughters, 29 May 1847 in Gosport, Norfolk Co., Virginia
To my Four Little Daughters

My four little daughters, so dear,
Thy names, in this album, I'll write,
My four little daughters so fair,
Instruction for thee I'll indite.

Missouri, mine eldest, give heed,
Unto the advice, Mynow give,
I'll sow in thine heart the best seed
Which, if ye'll but culture, will live

Mary Elizabeth, but thou art no more,
For thy maker hath call'd thee above,
Though it pained me, and made my heart sore,
Thou may act an angel of love.

Indiana, my third infant born,
Remember thy parents advice
Gather roses, but touch not the thorns,
Nor let sinners, to sin, thee entice.

Matthew Ann, my fourth daughter and last,
Take heed to they ways, in thy youth,
Shun wit, as thou wouldst the foul blast,
Love, virtue, religion and truth.

My lovely, sweet daughters, so dear,
They names written here, when you see,
Resolve of all sin to beware,
Remember the instructions from me.

15. Real Estate Ad 2744, Manington, 8 Oct 1867 in Norfolk, Norfolk (city), Virginia, USA
Real Estate
For Rent--I wish to rent out on shares the coming year, to some one well acquainted with the business of Trucking, the Farm called "Manington",
Situated about five miles from Portsmouth, on the road between that place and the village of Deep Creek---This Farm is in very good order, well fenced and well drained. Every acre in cultivation will be manured this year, which will enhance its value the coming season.--The soil is well adapted to the purposes of trucking. I think as a market farm it is equal to any in the surrounding country.
Julian's Creek is about a quarter of a mile from the Farm, on which there are several labelings at distance of not more than a half mile, where boats can take off marketing for shipment.
The short distance to Portsmouth, and goodness of the road, render it very convenient for daily market.
There is also attached to the Farm a very fine Orchard of Peaches and one of Apples.
The Mansion House will be reserved, but there is a very comfortable dwelling in the yard, which can be occupied by the farmer.
Virginia F. Hughlett
