Memorable Manitobans: Daniel Flynn Allman (c1846-1925)

Merchant.

Born at Dublin, Ireland around 1846, he came to Winnipeg around 1883 and worked for about 13 years as buyer for the menswear department of the Hudson’s Bay Company. He then went into business for himself, opening a menswear store on Main Street near Alexander Avenue. In 1904, he had a building constructed on Main Street that he occupied until retiring around 1923. He and wife Kate Fortescue (1858-?) had four children: Margaret Allman (b 1881, wife of W. J. Donovan), Michael Patrick Allman (b 1883), Daniel Joseph Allman (b 1885), and David Fortescue Allman (b 1887). The family lived at 270 Colony Street. He died at Winnipeg on 25 October 1925 and was buried in St. Mary’s Cemetery.
