With the refinement and development of his artistic skills acquired during his years working as a lithographer (lithography), Lane was able to successfully produce marine paintings of high quality, as evidenced in his being listed, officially, as a ‘marine painter’ in the Boston Almanac of 1840.

Early life Tradition holds that John Manley was born in 1733 near Torquay, Devonshire, in south west England. As a young man, he settled in Marblehead, Massachusetts, eventually becoming the captain of a merchant vessel there. Peabody p5 For reasons apparently lost to history, Manley went by the name of John Russell during his time spent in Marblehead, where he married Martha Russell (née Hickman) on September 27, 1764, and by whom he had at least two sons and three daughters. Outside of Marblehead, John continued to use the surname Manley. Lord pp284-285 Modern historian John L. Nelson acknowledges the above accounts, but suggests that they were "made up", and that in actuality Manley was likely born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts, where he later became a merchant sea captain and married Hannah Cheevers in 1763, by which he had one surviving son John. Nelson p168 All of the sources place Manley in Boston by 1775 after his services were enlisted for the nascent Continental Navy. Captain Manley died in Boston, Massachusetts in 1793.
