Thomas & Elizabeth Manser of Westham

A Thomas Manser Prestnel, illegitimate son of Eleanor Prestnel, was born on 1 March 1768 and baptised in Westham on 27 March 1768. This may have been our Thomas.

A Thomas Manser married Elizabeth Cousens in Litlington on 10 March 1791.  It is not known for sure if this was our Thomas and Elizabeth.

Thomas Manser and his wife Elizabeth had two children christened in Westham:


4 Sep 1796


25 Oct 1798

Thomas Manser, aged 75, was living in an Alms House in Westham in 1841 and probably died in 1844.

  • Winifred married William Hunnisett, an agricultural labourer, in Westham on 6 March 1821.
