Manning, Amanda (1862–1922)

The late Mrs. Amanda Manning, wife of Mr. Andrew (Archie) Manning, whose death we briefly referred to last week, was 59 years of age, and passed away after two hours' illness, from cerebral hemorrhage. The deceased lady was much liked by all who knew her for her quiet, un-obtrusive disposition. She was a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Wall, who had their home for many years on the farm now occupied by Mr. Joshua Bushell, on Richmond-road. She was born at Wilberforce and married Mr. Manning at the age of 22 years, in Sydney. Their family, all natives of the Hawkesbury district, consist of six children, two sons and four daughters. Much sympathy is expressed for Mr. Manning and his family in their sore bereavement. The death took place on the 22nd September and the remains were laid to rest in St. Matthew's C.E. cemetery, Windsor, on the 23rd. Rev. N. Jenkyn was the officiating clergyman and Mr. Chandler carried out the duties of undertaker. Mr. Manning has been bed ridden with rheumatism for over two years. He will be kindly remembered by many old Hawkesburyites as the owner captain of the old steamer St. Albans, which traded on the Hawkesbury River for many years.
