Music history in Liverpool

... but not regarding The Beatles!!

I'm trying to find an academic or learned person who has expertise in the music history of Liverpool, England, but unfortunately all music history in Liverpool seems to focus on popular music i.e. The Beatles. I'm looking more for the early 1800s - when W.G. Weiss was selling and publishing music there, and when Charles Nicholas Weiss was teaching and performing there.

Anyone? Anyone?

    If it's of any interest on the 2 dec 1840 musician john parry and franz liszt were killing time before catching a train to preston, parry took liszt to Weiss and Hemies music wharehouse to seek out music for Governess and Wife to see how his popular song was selling.
