Manning’s Harrow School

Henry Manning entered Harrow school for boys somewhere between 1818 and 1820 depending on what source you use. He was born in 1808 and most biographies say that he went to to Harrow when he was 10. He spent his youth at Harrow and left in 1826.  The following year he entered Oxford University.  Harrow school is located in Middlesex, which is now part of northwest London. The school was founded in 1572 so there is quite of bit of history surrounding it. Below are a couple of pictures of the Harrow School to give you an idea of where he spent his youth.
