The Aleppo Merchant, Carno nr. Newtown.

Hi, I have recently discovered that the Aleppo was run by my ancestors in the late 1800's to early 1900's. The name has always intrigued me, so, how did it get its name. By the way, the ancestral surname was Wilson, run by Anne and I think her husband was Robert. They also had a farm which I believe was Ty Mawr. They had a son, John who married Jane and had two children, Anne and Sid who then took over the Aleppo Inn as did Jane after John died.

i think you wil find that the inn got its name from a sea captain who was captain of the aleppo merchant, a ship built in 1641
