perhaps he was a well known market trader in Preston

found this in the London Gazette 6th July 1849

Lawrence Monk, formerly of Latham, near Ormskirk, Lancashire, Hawker and
Earthenware Dealer, and late a lodger in Little George-street, Preston, in the said
county, out of business or employment.

and on 14th July 1849 - Court for insolvent debtors

as above plus in Lancaster Gaol

there seems to be a few people trying to find the Monk families in 1841 & 1851

one says there seems to be a district missing for Lathom.

This shows where the Boyes family fit in

James Monk married Ann Boyes 17th July 1850 at St. Martin in the Fields, Liverpool and both their fathers named William were Hawkers.

Here is Ann with her family in 1841 in Lathom
William Boyes 25 Mugman
Mary Boyes 25
Ann 8
Mary 1
Elizabeth Monks 19 -not sure whether this is 9 or 19
William Monks 4 months

James is Lawrences brother???

but it is all a really tangled web
