Cardinal Henry Edward 
Manning
, youngest son.Manning spent much of his youth at Coomb Bank, Sundridge, Kent, where he became a close friend of Charles and Christopher Wordsworth, later Bishops of St. Andrews and Lincoln. Befitting his father's position and influence, he attended Harrow Public School and in 1827 matriculated at Balliol College, Oxford. While at Oxford Manning developed close friendships with William Gladstone and James Hope (later Hope-Scott). He proved himself a distinguished speaker in the Oxford Union, serving as President in 1829 (Gladstone succeeded Manning as President). On December 2, 1830 he took a first-class degree in classics. Manning's early ambition was a career in politics and with that goal in mind he assumed, through the Viscount Goderich, a post as supernumerary clerk in the colonial office. In 1832, he gave up his post and his political ambitions, due primarily to his father's substantial business losses, and resolved to pursue a clerical career. He returned to Oxford where he was elected a fellow at Merton College on April 27, 1832. Manning was ordained on December 23, 1832. In 1833, Manning assumed a post as curate to the Reverend John Sargent, rector of Lavington- with-Graffham in Sussex. In that same year, following the death ofthe Reverend Sargent, Manning was appointed rector at Lavington and Graffham.
