red mail Alman or Allman or Halman in Malpas area
Present day name is Halman, mainly market gardeners in the Wilmslow, Alderley Edge, Northenden or Stockport areas.. Research suggests that around eighteenth to nineteenth century, i.e. late 1700's to early 1800's there was likely to have been a name change from Alman to Halman or Allman to Alman or Halman. My father-in-law was Leonard Halman who had a market garden at Davenport Green, twixt Wilmslow and Alderley Edge. His daughter is my wife, Jean Mary Halman. I have hit a brick wall in my research!

His father was Randle Hopley born 1823 in Malpas married Marian Bromfield from Wheelock, had 6 children. His father was Robert Hopley born 1790 could be in Malpas or nearby. Married to Anne (surname not known), born 1791 in Holt, Denbighshire. Robert was also known as Robert Hopley Dod. His father was Robert Hopley born c 1764 in Shocklach married Margaret Richards in 1790 at Shocklach.. His father was Thomas Hopley. No further information. There seems to be some connection with the Povey family as this name appears on both sides of my family. My great grandfather on my dad's side was called George Albert Leah born 1866 in Chorlton, Manchester. He married Mary Alice Roberts born 1865 in Chorlton, Manchester. At their marriage in St Michael's, Hulme his brother Philip Povey Leah was a witness. Does anyone know of a Povey connection to the Hopley or Leah families please? Any other information on any of the Hopley family above would be appreciated. The Hopleys were farmers. Also if anyone knows anything about the Clutton family who were farm labourers. They may have worked for the Hopleys. Thanks. Babs
