Hi there, The Mann family name is a very historic name in my part of Devon, United Kindom. My tree goes back to 1670 and I am sure that some of my relations emigrated to North America some time in the 1800's but as of yet can find no record. Best of luck with your research as Mann is also part of the "Gunn" clan from Scotland and as such with the name "Mann" you are entitled to the wearing of the Gunn Clan Tarten.

Hello David,

Some of my Mann family came to Australia in 1828 from Broadhempston, Devon.  There is record of them in that region for approx 250 years previous.  Is it possible our family trees converge or is your lot from a different area in Devon?

Regards,

Jude

Hi there, Broadhempston is not to far away from where my Mann's came from.. They seemed to get around quite alot in those days.. So there could very well be a connection. I am at this moment racing my Mann family back into Tudor times the earlist record so far is 1567. Still reseaching. I live near North Tawton Devon. Have a look at my own website http://davemann928.tribalpages.com  good luck David

Elizabeth Mann is my 2x G Grandmother on my mother's side.  Born in Darke County, OH.  Any preceding information would be much appreciated.  Mann also shows up in another part of my tree: Fred Marion Mann of New York  married my great-aunt on the paternal side of my family.  Again, any info would sure be appreciated!

1870 - "On the 25th of March, in Manor township, Lancaster Co., Pa., of the infirmaties* of old age, ELIZABETH MANN, widow of John M. Mann, aged 89 years, 5 months and 17 days. She was buried on the 27th in the family burying ground, on which occasion J. J. Strine and Abraham Witmer delivered funeral discourses."

 There is some great information on http://www.mcusa-archives.org/mennobits/ipages/m1.html.  But unless you have Mennonite roots, this may not be of any help.   I have traced my "Mann" roots to Eli and Margaret Mann.  Eli was born in 1809 and Margaret was born in the early 1800s.  However I cannot find any further information on Eli.

 I know Eli and Margaret had one daughter and three sons.  One son, Christopher had 9 children, including Levi Mann.  Levi had my grandfather Lester Mann.  Lester had my father Dean, who in turn had me. 

There is a list of Palitinate emigrants and the ships they came over on http://www.progenealogists.com/palproject/ that provides passenger lists.  You can also do a free search on www.familysearch.org.  This latter site has been very helpful in finding out my great grandmother's history, all the way back to 1525 (if accurate).

My grandfather was reputed to be born a Quaker, though as far as I knew him, he didn't attend church.  My mother said he and my grandmother met in church as young people, and her father was a Dunkerd, so there is something there, though I don't know what for sure.  Perhaps a mennonite bond?  I don't know how all those religions are interwoven...

Hi Sheila:

 My GGGGG Grandfather was Gottfried Manns (Manz) (Mannz) (Mans) born in 1781 in Riesenkirch, West Prussia (now part of Poland).  He was married to Louisa Volkmann.  I have been searching microfilm records of Church ledgers, and the spelling of the name means nothing.  There are multiple references showing various spellings for the same individuals because few of the people had any education, and the minister simply wrote what he thought he heard.  If you have traced your family to this general area of Europe at about that time (or even as late as about 1870) there is a possibility I could assist you.  Email me at dgolem@fyrelytte.net

Ich suche Informationen über einen Karl Volkmann und seine Vorfahren. Wohnhaft in der Nähe von Welau Ostpreussen.

Karl Volkmann ist im 2. Weltkrieg verschollen, seine Kinder leben heite in Deutschland in der Nähe von Berlin.
