     Sydney George Manning was born in 1911 in Armadale, Victoria, Australia.2 He married Dorothy Mary Marjorie Greathead, daughter of Arthur Milner Greathead and Esther Davenport Blair, on 28 March 1942 in Cnr Tyler & High St Reservoir, Victoria, Australia.1,3,2

I was told a very interesting story about one of Dorothy's husbands ancestors, Zachariah Shaw which I was priviledged to receive. Zachariah was a draper in Dublin and in 1834 was found guilty, together with an associate Robert Clayton, of forging Government Stamps. Presumeably these were Government Seals as postage stamps were not issued until 1840 in England. Zachariah's wife Julia testified against Robert Clayton, who was the etcher and forger, so that the Government had an airtight case. In return Zachariah was able to take his wife and seven children to Australia. Robert Clayton then helped the Government to combat forgery and in return was also able to take his wife and family to Australia.
Both families received 25 pounds stirling in gold sovereigns and had cabin accommodation on the Royal Admiral which docked in Sydney on 22 January 1835. A further 50 pounds was given to each family together with Tickets of Exemption which had to be renewed each year. The condition was that no-one could return to England or Ireland.
This story is supported by correspondence to the Colonial Secretary in Australia including letters from the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland and the Revenue Office. Incredible!
As an aside, Robert Clayton was the Artist and Etcher for the first New South Wales Stamps issued on 1 January 1850.4 Sydney died in 1977 in Heildelberg, Victoria, Australia.2
