 I began with Grace's Guide website. I don't think I found much on there. There's Worrall's Cotton Directory. Some of the Gat Society History Walks contained little bits. I googled the rest, using Hemelryk or Hemelryk and Hornby cotton brokers as search terms.  Extracts from the article about Liverpool cotton brokers in "Journal of Northern History" are online.
I noticed business records but didn't investigate.
You might find something in National Archives Discovery catalogue. Holdings of many other archives are listed.

Maidenstone, would these "Worrall's Cotton Directory" & "Hemelryk or Hemelryk and Hornby cotton brokers" cover the Greater Manchester area?

I have a Swiss ancestor who had several children in the North whilst working there, and I would love to know if there are ways of tracking him.

I wonder why the 1939 register is so wrong? I haven't seen the original document, but “Pierre Leporeq”, cotton broker, has his DOB as 13 Feb 1884 in a transcribed version.

I think it is recorded as 13 July 1884. See snip below. I've  also snipped a February date from the same page for comparison

where did you find the business info on Pierre?

His partnership in Hornby Hemelryk is mentioned in insolvency notices in the Gazette:

https://www.thegazette.co.uk/London/issue/38041/page/3752

https://www.thegazette.co.uk/London/issue/42333/page/3016

Also in newspaper reports of the firm's financial problems in 1932.

On the 1906 Tourcoing census that Pauline found, is Jean Augustin Julien Leporcq listed as Auguste, his second given name, likely the name by which he was usually called. At the wedding of his daughter Jeanne Catherine Leporcq with Arthur Désiré Joseph Hennion, on 21 April 1922 Tourcoing, Nord, France, one of the witnesses is Pierre Edouard Leporcq ‘employé à Southport, Angleterre’.

Thanks everyone for all your help. I’ve moved from wanting to know where I can find when Pierre came over to having his probable parents and  background information about his work life. I do appreciate the brilliant people on Rootschat.
Thanks again.
Mick
PS even more info comes in while I am typing!

"Leporc dit Le Pourceau" - "Leporc called Le Pourceau? " So the family was sometimes known as "Le Pourceau"? (= The Swine? )

No I was told that the family referred to themselves as the Pigs.

Leporc is of course literally "the pig"  (I noticed that Jeanne Catherine didn't use the "q" )
