Of course the birth could have occurred in any of those little municipalities that are part of the Brussels region.
I checked Brussels and Molenbeek for births around that time and the only Leporcq birth was for a Jeanne Emilie Leporcq in 1882. The parents Charles Augustin Leporcq and Marie Delphine Galliot were actually residents of Boulogne sur Mer in France. (https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:9392-CS9W-G2?i=225&cc=1482191&cat=147201  - #5001).

Here is a list of the other Brussels municipalities: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_municipalities_of_the_Brussels-Capital_Region

Additionally, No Leporcq was listed as an inhabitant of Brussels in 1882 and 1885.

BTW Have you tried Pierre's marriage certificate yet?

What was his father's occupation? The one in Tourcoing was a contre-maitre - a foreman.

Leporeg!

Thanks, Garstonite, I have found the marriage now. He was a "correspondent" residing at The Anchorage, Heron Road, West Kirby. Father's occupation - spinner.

There were direct trains from West Kirby to James Street in Liverpool from 1886

I don't think there is any connection to South Liverpool except that Pierre died at the Northern Hospital. After the marriage they lived in Southport. where Pierre died in 1960.
