General Robert Manners is reputed to have been Godfather to Charles Childs

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_Ann_Mansel#cite_note-35 was mistress to two Generals - Robert Manners and Charles Asgill.  By the former she had 6 children and the latter she had 1 = Charles Childs.  I have been told that Robert Manners was godfather to the son of Charles Asgill (Charles Childs).  Since this was such an unusual relationship of 3 people it seems unlikely to me. Does anyone know how I can find the truth of the matter? It would put a whole new 'spin' on the story if I knew!  Incidentally, in his will, Charles Asgill left his black mare and saddle to the child of Robert Manners = Herbert Mansel, so maybe it really was a ménage à trois? Can anyone help me to find the truth?

Is there a WikiTree profile for any of these people that you could link to?
The link I gave for Mary Ann Mansel at the top of my post links to both Manners and Asgill.
Ah, sorry, you said WikiTree not Wikipedia!  There is my own tree but I couldn't find a way of linking it as each name I entered was rejected. Sorry.
I found the profile you created for Robert Manners, and I linked to it in your question.

Charles Asgill's profile is https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Asgill-2

Is Mary Ann Mansel the same person as https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Goodchild-274 ?
Thank you. Yes, that's the right one.  She was Mary Ann Mansel with Robert Manners and Mary Ann Goodchild with Charles Asgill!
Hope someone will be able to help with this query?
