This website presents genealogical and biographical information on members of a family who can trace their ancestry back to one Jonas Man who was born in Hambleden, Buckinghamshire, England in 1596. Living members of the Man and other families are not included.
Much of the information that can be found on this website is thanks to the hard work undertaken by Edward MacPherson Man. Ed passed away on 30 August 2014 aged 91.
Thank you for visiting this site and if you have comments or wish to make any additions, changes, suggestions, etc. you can email these to David Man at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Note however that because of time constraints you may not get a fast response.
This website also contains information and links to other families who have married into this MAN family and vice versa. A GEDCOM file of the data included on this web site is available on request.
As yet, only some of the individuals above have been identified: Standing from left to right are: Morrice King Man and his wife Jane Smart Walch and Morrice’s brother Harry Edward Julius Man. Seated from left to right (maybe) are: Henriette Marie Phillipine Man (wife of Harry Edward Julius), next to Henriette is unknown but probably Emma Elizabeth Man who married Jane Smart Man’s brother Charles Edward Walch. Last seated is Septimus Man. The young children are probably Ella Katherine Emma and Hariette Emma the daughters of Edward Julius and Henriette Marie (Fowle) Man. They could be Eliza Caroline and Emma Catherine, the daughters of Morrice King and Jane Smart (Walch) Man, but Jane is standing and not holding either of them which suggests they are Edward’s daughters.

The years 1861 – 1864 were significant for this group: Henriette Marie died on 15 November 1863 probably as a result of complications giving birth to her daughter Harietta. Emma Elizabeth died of tuberculosis one day later on 16 November 1863. Both Morrice King and Harry Edward died in 1864. Morrice died in Tasmania while Harry died at Halstead Hall, Kent. Caroline Eliza, the daughter of Emma Elizabeth Man and Charles Edward Walch died in 1862. Squeezed between these years (1861 – 1864) were the births of Morrice and Harry’s four daughters, all of whom survived to adulthood. The photograph must therefore have been taken some time shortly before November 1863, if Emma Elizabeth is the one seated in the middle.
