  Noted events in his life were:

source. Mary-Ann who writes:
Arthur Wilcox Manning was the fourth son of John Edye Manning, who had arrived in Sydney in 1828 to become the registrar of the Supreme Court. At the age of 21, Arthur Manning left England with his bride for a new life together in New South Wales. He had originally planned to study for the Church of England Ministry but decided that his epilepsy would be a disadvantage. He went on to have a distinguished career as a government official in New South Wales and Queensland.
In his journal, Manning provides a revealing record of life on an emigrant ship from the perspective of a cultivated first class passenger. He writes about the friction between the different classes of passengers and the difficulties faced by everyone on board: illness, death, overcrowding and the shortage of provisions which necessitated a four-day stop at Cape Town. He discusses the personalities of the officers and crew, sectarian conflicts and misrepresentations of the emigration agent. He vividly describes incidents such as a mutinous sailor threatening the captain, Thomas Surflen, waking to find his face covered with cockroaches, sighting a corpse floating past the ship, burials at sea, a threatened duel, thefts from the hold and discovering an albatross on deck with a message on a leather collar. The journal also contains a plan of the vessel with a key, a compass card diagram, a list of passengers and officers, a list of deaths, a chart of the anchorage at the Cape, a daily chronology of latitude and longitude and two pages of coloured illustrations of flags and signals. Another feature is Manning`s one-page letter of introduction to the `Reader` in which he makes it clear that he has publication in mind.
The Sydney Gazette noted the arrival of the Earl Grey in two notices on 27 February 1840. The ship arrived on Tuesday, the Gazette reported, with 218 Bounty emigrants from London. Nine adults died during the passage, one by accident, and one from rheumatic fever, one apoplexy, and six from fever; there was only one birth. The remainder are in perfect health.
Attempted Assassination - 1868
The Bulletin 16th October 1913 - A.W. Manning was Under Secretary in The Chief Secretary`s Office in Queensland in 1868 when he was assaulted with a tomahawk by a suspended C.P.S. The C.P.S. got penal servitude for life. Manning three months later got a pension of 600 a year. Everyone believed that he had retired to die, but he lived for another 32 years.
