Dear Jackson

Don't know whether you've had a response from anyone else or not, of
course - this being the disadvantage of inviting replies off-list.
However, I can tell you that only one PIERCEY family features in the 1851
Wirral CD:-

Thornton Hough
James PIERCEY, 31, ag lab, CHS Trafford.
Anne, wife, 29, CHS Barnston.
Maryann, daughter, 2, LAN Liverpool.
Margery, daughter, 1 month, CHS Thornton Hough.
Joseph EDWARDS, lodger, 23, ag lab, CHS Thornton.
Thomas BARLOW, lodger, 32, ag lab, LAN Downholland.

Gordon Evans
Herefordshire UK
