They are more or less the same thing. Mansion, manor, and manse all derive from the Latin mansus, which means dwelling.

A mansion is a fancy house. A manor is the house where a lord (peer) lived (also fancy, one presumes), and a manse is is a house inhabited by, or formerly inhabited by, a minister, usually of a Presbyterian, Methodist, Baptist or United Church.
