The Board received £25,849/12/4 in parliamentary annual grants and £15,803/0/10¼ in tolls. It is thought that the current waterways authority’s income from tolls is rather less significant.
The above Martin Dillon Manning was the son of Matthew Manning and Lady Helen Dillon daughter of the 10th Earl of Roscommon.
Thank you. Do you perchance know the political affiliations (whig or tory) of the Mannings of that time? bjg
