Thank you for the info about the agents paying the pensions. I often
wondered how they got their pension in those days and hadn't previously
come across the idea of agents doing it.
I have some details about Chelsea Pensioners which I collected a long
time ago but found the Chelsea Pensioners web site in your link very
interesting. I guess he would not be in the book of remembrance because
he was an out pensioner.

Have you looked at TNA, The National Archives, for records of Chelsea
Pensioners (out)? It seems there were agents who paid them their
pensions wherever they lived. It may give a clue or two.
Also this link to Chelsea Pensioners website.
There was no Manning in their book of remembrance.
the link to the British Empire website and the 14th Dragoons made for
great reading of 'derring-do' and raised a deal of chuckles. A must
read. Repeated here:

Charles MANNING was living in Wolverhampton in 1851 - he was a Chelsea
(out) Pensioner. Their son was born in King's Lynn, Norfolk in 1820
because father happened to be there with the army at the time. This is
my problem, I have no idea where they might have been at the time they
married. A further complication is that Mary died in 1838 so I have no
way of knowing where she was born.
