    Notes:

    From The Genealogical and Biographical History of the Manning Families of New England (citation details below):

    He studied medicine under his father's direction and then commenced practice, at the age of twenty, at Newmarket, N.H. After one year he returned to Ipswich, where he resided and practiced the remainder of his life. As there were no medical colleges or hospitals in America at that day, Dr. Manning, at the age of thirty-three, and after some twelve years of active practice, crossed the ocean to perfect his medical education in England. Returning to this country, 1772 May 8, after a course of six months training in the hospitals and lecture rooms of London, his practice soon became extensive. On the 19th of April, 1775, the day of the battle of Lexington, he drove to Boston to bring his sister, Mrs. McKean, to Ipswich. When near Boston he overtook a British officer, severely wounded, to whom he freely gave the medical attention which he greatly needed. For this humane act the officer gave Dr. Manning a pass which enabled him to enter Boston and depart with his sister. He arrived at Ipswich at night, aroused his family, and when he had collected such articles as he knew would be needed, hastened to the relief of those wounded in the battle, giving to his suffering countrymen such aid as his skill and medicine could accomplish. His grandson, Joseph Bolles Manning Esq., is authority for the further statement that, when this was done, he assisted the British surgeons in caring for their wounded, "and by his direction, both parties [of wounded] were removed to Cambridge, where he attended six weeks until they were discharged." This was, on his part, an early application of the doctrine, since common to all civilized nations, that in the presence of those suffering after battle, all partisan feeling should be forgotten. Later in the war he served as surgeon at Newport, R.I. In 1777 he strongly advocated inoculation for the prevention of small pox, which caused so much opposition and hostility that, for a time, it is said, his life seemed in danger. He was active in business enterprises. He bought and sold real estate outside of his own county, having transactions of this kind in Worcester Co., Mass., Hillsborough Co., N.H., and Cumberland Co., Me. In 1788 he, with others, made proposals to the Legislature for taking the poor of the Commonwealth which were in the almshouse at Boston, and removing them to Ipswich, where, with the selectman of that town to act as overseers, the projectors of the plan would supply them with lodging, good, wholesome food, medical attendance, etc., for three-fourths of the then present expense. A paper was drawn up by the House to accept the proposal, but shows no sign of having been acted upon [House Document 2640]. Ten years later, however, the doctor petitioned for the payment of expenses which he had incurred because, by direction of the selectmen of Ipswich, he had during the past year "supported several of the poor of the Commonwealth", proving that his plan had in some degree been carried into effect. The Acts and Resolves of Massachusetts for 1790 show that he petitioned for payment of certain dues from the Commonwealth to enable and encourage him to carry on a woolen manufactory at Ipswich. The State agreed to pay from its treasury the interest due him on the State notes he held in his own name, and so much of the principal as should amount, with the interest, to £1,000, he first giving bond that the £1,000 should be within one year employed in a woolen manfactory in Ipswich. Whether this official action was satisfactory, and was accepted, has not been learned, but the enterprise was consummated. In 1792 the town of Ipswich granted Dr. Manning land for the erection of the factory. This was, perhaps, the first woolen mill in the country. It stood upon the bank of the river, and was run by a windmill. It was a two-storied building, about 60 x 30 feet, and was at the foot of the hill at the northwest corner of Choate Bridge. The structure now on the site is called Caldwell's Block. On the end of the building, away from the bridge, was a signboard, about 5 x 23 feet, with "Massachusetts Woolen Manufactory" painted upon it, this being the name by which it was known. Blankets and flannels were made at the factory, which went into operation in 1794, but the enterprise was not a success, and it was closed in 1800. The doctor's son, Capt. Richard Manning, was superintendent of the mill, and his pattern book is now in the possession of Mr. Francis H. Manning. Dr Manning's hospitality was widely known. The house he built on High Street, Ipswich, still standing, was constructed with a view to indulging this characteristic. The partitions of the lower story were hung upon hinges at the ceiling, so that they could be raised, thus making one room of the hall and the rooms on each side. As an illustration of this hospitable proclivity, his grandson Richard H. Manning related this incident: "Dr. Manning was riding one summer afternoon, about 1818, toward Hamilton, when he met a Company of Horse, known as the Salem Troop. Drawing up before the captain, whom he saluted as only he could do it, for he was an exceedingly courteous gentleman, stately and venerable withal, he invited the Company to ride on to his house in Ipswich and take supper with him. The invitation being accepted, the doctor turned his horse and rode back to Ipswich at the head of the Troop, which soon drew up in front of the mansion on "Pudding street", now High street. This was the first intimation the family had of the intended feast, and I, a shaver of eight or nine years, was dispatched to all the neighbors for spoons and cooked food to eke out the entertainment." Dr. Manning was elected representative from Ipswich 1781, '82, '84, '87, '89, '92 and '94 or a total of nine years. His skill and experience rendered him for a long time eminent in the medical profession; all publications dealing with his county mention this fact. He had his own opinions upon politics and religion, and was fond of power and resolute in carrying out his purposes. His character was marked by unvarying courtesy, a broad charity and great kindness of heart.
