Manvers Township
Manvers Township within former Victoria County

The Township of Manvers (area 69,923 acres (283 km2)) was a municipality in the former Victoria County, now the city of Kawartha Lakes, in the Canadian province of Ontario.

From 1792 to 1974 Manvers Township was located in Durham County, which was united with Northumberland County in 1800 for administrative purposes.

The township was officially established in 1816 and named in honour of Charles Pierrepont, 1st Earl Manvers.

In 1974, an extensive re-organization of municipal administrative divisions took place. Durham County was separated from Northumberland County, re-named the Regional Municipality of Durham and incorporated most of the former Ontario County; in the process, Manvers Township was transferred to the County of Victoria.

Effective January 1, 2001, Victoria County was dissolved and its municipalities and townships were amalgamated; the new administrative municipal division was named the City of Kawartha Lakes.
