As the primary author of this article to this point, I would agree that Start-Class is about right for the assessment. In fact that might be a bit generous. And I do think the article has stagnated a bit and is in need of its first major reworking, hopefully incorporating many of the "Notes" up into the main article. I'd be glad to take the lead on this reworking and would be very open to guidance, thoughts, suggestions, etc., from anyone who wants to tell me where to go with this piece.

Removed this outdated passage regarding her birthdate
According to at least two sources (The Times and The Guardian), she was born in 1888, not 1895, and was 100 years old when she died. The Guardian lists her date of birth as August 21, 1886. Otto1970 (talk) 23:09, 26 January 2008 (UTC)
According to the Birth records the birth of Ruth Vernon Manning was registered in Swansea in the 4th Quarter of 1886. Which would fit in with a date of birth of 21 August 1886, registration could be a number of weeks after the birth. I have tweaked the article to reflect this, note she was 102 when she died.

Wow, that's terrific work. Thank you very much. Otto1970 (talk) 23:21, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
When she was 3, her family moved to their native England in Cheshire.
Not sure about this as her mother Emma and her two older sisters Mary and Elizabeth were all born in Swansea. Her father was born in Liverpool. So only her father was English. In the 1891 Census Ruth is listed as a four-year old and the family are at 41 Westbourne Road, Nether Hallam, Sheffield in Yorkshire. Can we remove the term native England?

Just a note for interest her mother was probably born Emma Brock as she married a John Edmondson Manning in Swansea in 1879. MilborneOne (talk) 22:36, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
Yes, I removed the term "native England" Thanks for the interesting notes. What inspired you to research all of this? I've been dabbling in Manning-Sanders biographical research for years and have never done well at all on geneaological end. Everything you have is greatly appreciated is if there's anything else you've come across, that would be terrific, too. Otto1970 (talk) 23:21, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
No particularly interest in Manning-Sanders just came across the article and thought I would check out some of the facts. MilborneOne (talk) 13:28, 23 April 2009 (UTC)
