Thomas Manuel. Origin: Unknown

Thomas Manuel received a land grant on Long Island of 100 acres in the Berry’s area. The land was later owned by Late Grantees (given out after 1848). The same grant number (D-128) also applies to a 200-acre grant to Anthony Friar/Frier; this occurred because the Long Island grants are numbered to match the pages of Book D on which they are recorded, and Book D frequently includes two grants per page.

We have not been able to find Thomas Manual in any other records, and we believe the name may have been written incorrectly – perhaps should have been “Emmanuel?” We have not been able to determine when and from where Manuel/Emmanuel arrived in the Bahamas.
