Hi,

Could this be your man? - familysearch.org has the christening of a Samuel Hallman on 1 Dec 1811 at St Mary's Stockport - parents John Hallman and Mary.

Just checked Stockport for the marriage of a John and Mary pre 1811 with no surnames, and found a John Holmes and Mary Mason married 27 Feb 1810.

Possible? I know I've got a massive change of surname in Budworth around the 1830's, only found my guy by searching where he said he was born by checking all the babies with his christian name around the right date.

Cheshire - Lambert, Houghland, Barker

London - Notley, Elsom
Oxfordshire - Hitchcock, Smith, Leonard, Taunt
Durham - Hepburn, Eltringham
Berwickshire - Guthrie, Crawford
Somerset - Taylor (Bath)
Gloucestershire - Verrinder, Colborn

Well possible! I had tried so many variations on the surname but hadn't found this entry. I also scanned the register and this one didn't 'hit' me. I'll check out the fiche copy of the original to see whether there is more information. Thank you!

Possible.. Mary was born at Gill Bent and was a widow aged 62 years according to the 1851 census. I can't find a Mary Mason christened at Cheadle St Mary or local nonconformist chapels but will dig into this deeper. First take a look at the original of the marriage.  Thank you!

Neat trick searching without surname -I must add this to my search strategy!

There is an image on one of the larger genealogy sites, it definitely says HALLMAN, only additional info is that he was born 23rd October, father of Stockport

Yes, this has been my top choice for a while. The was a Hankinson family in Macclesfield (southern part of Prestbury parish) but I haven't found a Gill Bent Mary born in the likely timeframe. There is a Mary Hankinson christened at Hale and Shaw's Lane Presbyterian, born 20 Aug 1793, Hale. However, there is a Mary Ankinson, unmarried, aged 57 years born Timperley in the 1851 census that may match this christening.

So this is a possible marriage but would like to find a Mary born abt 1789 in the Cheadle Hulme area to clinch...

If we accept Samuel being born in 1810 the we probably would expect another child -possibly died young- born 1809-ish

There are a lot of Hankinsons in the NC registers, have you ruled out the one at Manchester Cross Street Presbyterian ~ bn 13 july 1792, bapt. 20 Aug. 1792.
