This is where the family got it wrong. Le porc is pork as in the meat but couchon is pig, the animal.

Depends on the context. In a zoological sense "porc" translates as "pig". In a culinary sense it translates as "pork". "Cochon " also means "pig" but with more of a dirty connotation, I think.

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

Manchester was nicknamed 'Cottonopolis'.
Worrall published many directories including:
 '1891 Worrall's Cotton Spinners' Directory'
'The Cotton Spinners' and Manufacturers' Directory for Lancashire and the Adjoining Manufacturing Districts' 1919.
'Worrall's Trade Directory of 1871'
'Worrall's 1871 Directory of Bury, Bolton and district' *
'Worrall's Directory: British and Dominion Textile Industry 1953'
Worrall published directories for several towns, districts and regions in England, Scotland and Wales.
*Download available from Bury Libraries https://www.bury.gov.uk
Other directories include Pigot's, Slater's.
Grace's Guide is an online directory of historical resources about industry.
