historic=manor is not UK specific, it is used elsewhere too:


However you need to keep in mind that there is also historic=castle + 
castle_type=manor.  Both these have been added to rendering in 
OSM-Carto recently:


which will likely perpetuate the tagging fragmentation.

If historic=manor fits for your cases i would only invent a new tag if 
there is a clear distinction between the two that is practically 
verifiable by a mapper without specialized architectural or historic
