Hi, I have just read your post seeking info about Walter Manley. My brother currently has all the official papers but I am pretty sure he was my great,great grandfather. His daughter Hannah married Samuel Buckley Sherrington.They were my mother's maternal grandparents and lived in West Square Kennington. Hannah used to tell my Mum stories about her life as a bare back rider in the circus. I have a copy of Hannah and Samuel's wedding certificate. It describes Samuel and Walter as "travellers". In later life Samuel was a "cooper". Samuel was born in Manchester but I can find no other info about him.

If you want to know more you can e mail me.

Best wishes.
