The land was originally purchased by Henry Manning in 1856, with Manning's grandson, John Daniel Manning having a dairy farm in the area. The suburb became a State Housing Commission project in 1948, being named the Manning Estate during subdivision and Manning eventually becoming the official name of the area.
Mark Manning, a direct descendant of Henry Manning and a Civil Engineer, has retained close links to the suburb by claiming it has been named in his honour.
Schools in Manning are Manning Primary School on Ley Street, St Pius X Catholic Primary School on the corner of Ley Street and Cloister Avenue, and Curtin Primary School (formerly Koonawarra Primary School) on Goss Avenue.
