McManis, Alfred (1838–1916)

The death was announced yesterday of Mr. Alfred McManis, a member of the old Parramatta family, brother of Messrs. Arthur and Rowley McManis. Mr. Alfred McManis was a famous musician of old Parramatta in the days when a local concert programme was not complete unless it contained such names as those of Mrs. Manton, Mr. Alfred McManis, perhaps with those of Miss Green and Mr. Watsford. Mr. McManis was a prominent Freemason of Parramatta and for years was organist of the lodge St. George. Of late years he has not been much in evidence in Parramatta, the advance of years meaning of course less ability than usual to got about much.
