Father of Gerard Manley Hopkins. Founder of a marine insurance firm, consul-general for Hawaii in London, churchwarden, and poet. Submitted poems and articles to the magazine Once a Week under the pseudonym Berni. Manley Hopkins was a devout High Church Anglican who taught Sunday School at St. John’s in Hampstead, where he was churchwarden. He loved music and literature, passing on his fondness for puns and wordplay to his sons Gerard and Lionel and his love for poetry to Gerard especially. His publications include A Philosopher’s Stone and Other Poems (1843), Pietas Metrica (1849), and Spicelegium Poeticum, A Gathering of Verses by Manley Hopkins (1892). He also reviewed poetry for the London Times and wrote one novel and an essay on Longfellow, which were never published.
