: : Never heard this phrase b4! I need a reply! Can anybody please explain what "of the manor born" means? Important.
: : TY, Celina :)

: I'm pretty sure it means " A person that is born to wealthy people". Coming from the old times where wealthy Barons and other royalty lived in large homes or Manors.

Someone just told me that there is British TV show "To the Manor Born." But that's a pun. The phrase is "to the manner born." (See my other post.)
