Mayor, Carlisle 1561, 1569.1
Described as ‘alderman and merchant’ in 1566, when with Thomas Barne, William Mulcaster and others he was a plaintiff in a case against the then mayor, and as ‘gentleman’ on the return, Pattenson belonged to a family whose name recurs frequently in the records of Carlisle and its vicinity. A Thomas Patynson ‘of Sedbourne’ (possibly Sebergham, 10 miles from Carlisle) occurs on the pardon roll, 7 Nov. 1553.2
On 27 Feb. 1581 Pattenson was appointed to the committee for the second reading of the bill for Carlisle.3
