Joseph Ritson (1752-1803). Ritson was born in Stockton-on-Tees northern England. Not a lot is known of his early life. He published the reasons for his vegetarianism in An Essay on Abstinence from Animal Food, as a Moral Duty (1802). He was also an atheist. When he died, for instance, he was in the middle of completing a tract that attempted to prove that Jesus Christ was an imposter. Indeed, throughout his life he was known to have told his associates that: He did not believe that there was any such being as Almighty God, or that there was any future state of rewards or punishment, and the greatest devil he knew was a nasty, crabbed, ill-natured old woman.

In real life, Ritson had a dog whom he called – Ritson. The 1960s, it seems, had happened before.

For example, in "An Essay on Abstinence from Animal Food as a Moral Duty" (1802), Joseph Ritson (1752-1803) wrote of a family's diet: "their provision is chiefly oatmeal, potatoes, milk, and butter - no animal food whatever".
