Born in Quebec on 26 August 1859, he came to Winnipeg and by 1902 was working for the wholesale grocery firm of Codville and Company. On 2 September 1882, he married Annie V. Anderson (1863-?) at Emerson. They had three children: Gladys J. Georgeson (1883-?), William Allan Georgeson (1886-?), and Barbara F. Georgeson (1887-?). He was a founding member, in 1905, of the St. Charles Country Club. He served as President of the Manitoba Curling Association (1896-1897) and Winnipeg Board of Trade (1902). In 1907, he resigned from the Codville firm and moved to Calgary, Alberta.
