The youngest child of Fred and Eliza was Cecil Manning, born on 29th September, 1896. Named after the river, he was known as Manning or "Big Fellow."

He married Hannah Matilda Yarnold of Killabakh, and they had three children, Frederick Charles, Eva Elvina, and Bruce Kelvin.

Early in their married life, Manning and Hannah share-farmed in the Hastings District, then came back to farm at Killabakh on the property of Hannah's father, Charles Yarnold. There followed a spell of share-farming for his brother Ern at Burrell Creek, before finally acquiring his own place at Duck's Ridge on the Comboyne.

Manning maintained a pure-bred Jersey herd, winning many prizes with them at Comboyne Show of which organisation he was a committeeman and steward for many years. His prize winning at the Show was not restricted to cattle, as he regularly won awards for corn and also vegetables.

A keen cricketer, Manning played for Burrell Creek and Comboyne, supplementing his hard hitting batting with off-spin bowling and handy wicket-keeping.

Manning passed away in Wauchope Hospital 11th April 1969 and is buried in the Comboyne Cemetery.
