Wallman is a name which occurs among the Mennonites of Russia as well as among the Hutterites. Hans Woleman is mentioned as being among the Hutterites during the Thirty Years' War. The Hutterites who went to Russia in 1784 included Jacob Waleman and Katherina Walemanin. During the early 19th century Andreas Wallmann left the Hutterite group of Russia and joined the Mennonites at the Chortitza settlement where he married Katharina Lepp and worked for the well-known industrialist Peter Lepp, later becoming a shareholder in the factories at both Chortitza and Alexandrovsk. His son became the manager of a factory in Chortitza. The factories, known as "Lepp and Wallmann," were renamed by the Soviets as "Fabrika No. 2." Through Andreas Wallmann this Hutterite name was transplanted to the Low German Mennonites of Russia and North America.
