A British industrialist and metallurgist who visited Canada on a business trip soon after the Daguerreotype method was announced in 1839. His Daguerreotypes of Niagara Falls are considered to be amongst the earliest photographs, if not the earliest, taken in Canada. Eight Daguerreotypes by Pattinson are retained by Newcastle University Library, England.
One of his Daguerreotypes of Niagara Falls was passed on by Antoine Claudet to NoŽl Marie Paymal Lerebours for publication in Excursions daguerriennes: vues et monuments les plus remarquables du globe (A Paris: Chez Rittner et Goupil, Boulevard Montmartre, 15; Lerebours, Opticien de l'Observatoire, Place du Pont-Neuf, 13; Hr Bossange, Quai Voltaire, 11, 1842)
