Born in Edinburgh about 1805, he may have been the son of William PATERSON, a tailor and Hellen DICKSON, who also baptised a son William at St Cuthbert's Edinburgh in 1812.
He was a baker living in South Fould Close on High Street when he was convicted of stealing in 1832 and arrived in Hobart Town on Surrey (3) in 1833.
He married Mary HINGERTY in Hobart in 1835 and they had two children.
He died in an accident near Avoca in 1839.
