    PIERPOINT SURNAME

    Marie
    By Marie,
    I am looking for any information on my great great grandmother ELIZA PIERPOINT. She was born in 1816 in St.Helens. She married JOHN WELSH in 1855. I wondered if anyone else has come across this surname as it seems a bit unusual, and I also believe the name is connected to a famous hangman.

Her mother died 17 days after she was br. Jane was raised by her grandparents..MOSES HOLDEN and wife MARGARET nee CRITCHLEY. [don't ask me....
