Origin of the Name Manning

The ancient history of the name Manning was found in the archives. Meaning 'the son of Manning', this is a personal name derived from the old Norse name 'manningi', a valiant man. Variants include Mannin, Mann and Man. This name is of Anglo-Saxon descent spreading to the Celtic countries of Ireland , Scotland and Wales in early times and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts throughout these countries. Examples of such are a Henri Maninge, Cambridgshire, and a Henry le Man, Cambridgeshire, who were recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls', England , in the year 1273. A Johannes Mannyng was recorded in the 'Poll Tax' of the West Riding of Yorkshire in the year 1379. In Scotland a Nicolaus Man was a juror on an inquest in 1431. In Ireland Manning is sometimes used as the anglicized form of the native Gaelic O'Mainnin sept name, who also changed their name to both Mannin and Mannion. They were of the Ui Maine and were located in County Galway , being descended from the pre-Gaelic Sodhan race.
The Manning coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Manning descendants.
