James Manley surgeon

???? - 1797


James Manley of Campton [sic] in Somerset, surgeon, was among a group of 16 annuitants created in 1775 when each purchased an annuity from Jacob Kladen (q.v.) secured on Kladen's St Vincent property, including named enslaved people, to raise £11,000. Manley purchased an annuity of £50 p.a. in common with almost all the other subscribers. No will has been found for him in the PCC records but he appears to have been the James Manley who died at Ipswich in 1797, son of Henry Manley of Hemyock Devon (d. 1775).
