Of course, it's PENRICE! And they seem to be Workington, Whitehaven and
Distington. Thanks, Edgar.

There aren't that many native Scott families in this part of the world, and
the use of Isaac might suggest a link.

My Scotts in Branthwaite were brewers, and the Peiles were brewers; and I
think these families marry within very limited circles. So I'm inclined to
look at any potential connection like this as worth pursuing.
