About the brand
Joseph William Patteson was born in 1880 in Caistor just outside Grimsby. His father was Alfred Patteson a market gardener from Hasingham Norfolk, who had moved up to Lincolnshire with the family.
In 1911 Joseph and his wife Ada had moved with their daughter Grace, to a new house in Hope Street, Grimsby. Joseph had become a Fruitier and Greengrocer, tired of throwing out old fruit and veg from the shop, he started making the leftovers into preserves.
They soon gained a local following and both Ada his wife and their 2 sons, William and Robert, were helping in the fast growing family business.
As the business grew they moved to new premises in Spencer Street nearer the docks and a mile away from the house in Hope Street. The traditional chutney that was a mixture of fruit and veg was a firm favourite in Lincolnshire and soon the whole of the North of England.
Joseph Patteson died in 1962 at the grand old age of 81, and is buried in Scartho Road cemetery in greater Grimsby. His headstone inscribed "husband and father", he left a legacy that lives on in Patteson's Pickles limited…
