I do not know if this will help anyone but during my 'surf' looking for Hooper family I came upon a Hooper-Pulman connection...not related to me but might prove helpful to someone else so worth a mention.
In 1872 I found a marriage for John Pulman to Mary Ann Hooper who was from Dunkeswell. John's father was also a John Pulman and Mary Ann's father was a Benjamin Hooper. Witnesses for the wedding were Lucy Pulman and James Orchard.
Bejamin Hooper was also the father of Caroline Hooper who married William Henry Rowland in 1884. Fathers where John Rowland and Benjamin Hooper. Witnesses were Eli (who I think is Ernest Eli ) Hooper and Sarah Ann Hooper. ( I also think these two may have been husband and wife).
I als found that there was a very large Hooper family connected to this area and that James and Anne Hooper had a Ernest Ali Hooper ....
Hope this might help some Pulman researcher out there.
