Joseph Williamson was a wealthy businessman, but he was not born into wealth. His father was a poor glassmaker. Poverty forced Joseph to leave his family behind in Warrington and seek employment under the tobacco merchant Richard Tate in Liverpool. Joseph Williamson was only eleven years old at that time.

Through hard work, Williamson rose thorough the ranks of the company, married the daughter of Richard Tate, and eventually bought the company from his son.
