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.

Hoose ( Hoylake ) to Liverpool is around 15 miles - No Mersey Tunnel then .

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

Well I never knew that Shaun - that early - thought it was all horse drawn then - current value of Heron Road properties is £383,000p...

Could Hoose be a version of Hoole, near Chester?  It seems more likely than Hoylake.
Liverpool was a great centre for trade in raw cotton, with very little involvement in spinning or weaving.  Many traders originated in Europe.  The membership lists of the Liverpool Cotton Association may be in the Liverpool Record Office.

The reason for Cotton Trade Liverpool was because the family story was that Pierre came to Liverpool to work in the cotton industry, never went back to Belgium and was ostracised by his family as a result. I am just trying to find any info I can.

the family story was that Pierre came to Liverpool to work in the cotton industry

His first job in England appears to be as a foreign correspondent. He was still doing that when Elizabeth Marie was baptised in 1907: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S3HT-62K7-5SM?i=194

By 1911 he had became a cotton broker's clerk: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XWY7-64G

Later on he was a partner in Hornby Hemelryk & Co

@mickawinn

Do you have any idea what Pierre's native language was: Flemish (Dutch) or Walloons (French)?
