What you say is interesting but going back through history we know the first Pierpont (Pierrepont) arrived in England during William the Conqueror's time and some hundreds of years later a nunber of Pierpoints ( variations in spelling) arrived in London as Huguenot refugees from Normandy in the 16th century. While many can trace their origins back to these Pierpoints, the problem for me has always been the number of Pierpoints clustered in the north of England around Liverpool/Manchester and not a centre of Huguenot settlement. What were the origins of this family? The original Normans? Or some other derivation? Any thoughts or theories?
