Cotton Trade Liverpool
« on: Thursday 16 May 19 13:18 BST (UK) »
Would a Belgian immigrant who came to England at the end of the 19th century appear on any passenger lists? I have Pierre Edouard Leporcq, son of Auguste, born in Brussels in 1884. Married in 1906 on the 1911 census and shown as a Cotton Broker on the 1939 register. I have tried Family Search unsuccessfully for birth record and am just really trying to find when and how he came to England. Any pointers would help.

Tourcoing is on the Belgian border.

There is an appropriate gap in the children’s births for Pierre but none were born in Brussels or near. One to keep in mind.

How do you know he was born in Brussels?

But the 1911 census doesn't say Brussels....

Passenger lists were not made for journeys within Europe, only further afield (not the right word for a maritime journey!).

Across the ocean?
Would he have registered as an alien in 1914?
