This distinguished Irish surname is an Anglicized form of the old Gaelic Mac Maghnuis or Mac Manus. The Gaelic prefix "mac" meaning "son of", plus the personal name Manus, ultimately from the Latin "magnus" meaning "great", and popular with the Normans who had adopted it in honour of the Emperor Charlemange (742 - 814); Latin name Carolus Magnus i.e. Charles the Great.

It was the Norsemen who introduced this personal name to Ireland where it later took the form Manus...

Frances Toole, I have the family tree of Dominque and Mary, Roscommon, Ireland. Their son Barney was my great grandfather. His son Steve Monroe Manus was my grandfather. When they came to the U.S. they dropped the Mc and the name listed is Manus. Happy to help you follow up on this.

#3 McManus

I recently found out through DNA test that my grandfather was Francis McManus. He passed in Arizona around ninety plus years old. This took place in the mid 1990's. I was hoping to find anyone with some information. I think he was from Davenport, Iowa. Thanks

I am looking for descendants of John McManus and Bridget Duignan McManus of Greaghnaleva More in Co. Roscommon. My grandmother was Mary Helen or Ellen McManus born in 1889. She had a brother Patrick born in 1885. I am looking for his children andor grandchildren. I think all of his siblings went to the U.S.
