Biography of William Paterson, M.P.

William Paterson, who represents South Brant, in the House of Commons, is a son of James and Martha (Lawson) Paterson, of Aberdeen, Scotland, and grandson of Rev. Mr. Paterson, minister for years at Midmar, Scotland. His parents came to Upper Canada, nearly fifty years ago, and he was born in Hamilton, September 19, 1839. He was educated in that city and at Caledonia, in the County of Haldimand; came to Brantford in 1854, and was a clerk in a general store, until 1863, when he commenced the bakery business, and manufacture of confectionery, being for several years in company with Henry B. Leeming. Since 1876 he has been alone. His bakery and confectionery are operated by steam, with all the latest and best methods of manufacture introduced into his works, and he is doing a business, in the three departments of industry mentioned, of about $150,000 a year. He has the genuine pushing disposition, and probably no manufacturer in the city does a more prosperous business. He is a straightforward, high minded man, and has an honorable standing in the community. Discover your family's story.
