historical usage of manifest
The Latin sense of manifestus “evident, plain to see” is the earliest sense in English. The Latin verb manifestāre “to make visible, indicate, make plain, disclose,” a derivative of manifestus, is, along with the Middle French verb manifester, the source of the English verb.
The noun sense of manifest, “a list of a ship’s cargo or goods,” appeared in the late 17th century and comes from Italian manifesto “a public declaration, especially a written declaration,” which dates from the early 17th century. That Italian word is, of course, the source of English manifesto, “a public declaration of intentions, opinions, etc.,” which happens to be one of the less common meanings of English manifest.
