In order to navigate around this web site you should carefully read this page which describes its basic structure. There is a 'Generation' page for each generation of the Man family. To move among the generations, click on the generations listed in the chart below.
The reason for the use of both numeric and alphabetic labels for generations is because of the discovery of earlier generations since this web site was first constructed. Initially, Generation One was the most distant established generation consisting of just one person, namely, John Man, the Elder. Now, John Man is joined by his recently discovered siblings on the Generation One page.
Rather than renumber the entire web site, it has been decided to use the alphabet to connote generations prior to Generation One. Thus, as earlier generations are established, they will be designated A, B, C, and so on, as we push back in time. To begin your navigation down through the generations presently established, start with C and work forward through B, A, and then, One, Two, and so on to the most recent generation - Eleven.
To return to this page click the 'Generations' button that appears on the horizontal navigation bar above each page. Links to each generation also appear at the bottom of each generation page.
Each generation is broken down into family groups. For each family group the names of the parents are given first followed by the names of their children. Obviously, as you go down through the generations more and more family groups are shown within each generation. Since there are two main branches of the Man family extant at this time, namely, the descendants of Henry Man (1748 - 1799) and James Man (1755 - 1823), an attempt has been made to relate each generation's members back to one or the other of these gentlemen.
If a child's name is highlighted, there is a separate page for that individual and only his/her birth and death years are noted on the Generation page.
If not highlighted, after each child's name is shown as much information as has been found on that individual.
For individuals with their own 'individual' page, these pages are accessed by clicking on their highlighted names on the generation page to which they belong. A person usually receives an 'individual' page if he or she has married, then all vital statistics on that couple and items of interest about them are given in the 'individual' page. Some individuals have pages without the qualification of having married. This is usually because we have more than the basic data on them. Unless otherwise stated, the country is England.
To access the pages of those families that have married into the Man family, click on the horizontal navigation button at the top of each page labeled Other Families. To find a particular individual you may either Search for that person or consult the Name Index.
