Old Durham County

                                                    MANVERS   TOWNSHIP

When Manvers Township was first being settled, it shared the Reeve and Township Clerk from Cavan Township next door.  It wasn't long before Cavan had to find a new Reeve and Clerk, as the two who held these posts also moved over to Manvers, along with much of the population of Cavan.

 

This is the "HUB" page for Manvers Township.  It will lead you to the information that exists about Manvers today.  It is still under construction and further information will be added as it is acquired or transcribed.  Please follow the links below.
