Isomeric states in isotopes in the vicinity of doubly-magic 208 Pb were populated following reactions of a relativistic 208 Pb primary beam impinging on a 9 Be fragmentation target. Secondary beams of 198,200,202,206 Pb and 206 Hg were isotopically separated and implanted in a passive stopper positioned in the focal plane of the GSI Fragment Separator. Delayed γ rays were detected with the Advanced Gamma Tracking Array (AGATA). Decay schemes were re-evaluated and interpreted with shell-model calculations. The momentum-dependent population of isomeric states in the two-nucleon hole nuclei 206 Pb/ 206 Hg was found to differ from the population of multi neutron-hole isomeric states in 198,200,202 Pb.
