Joseph was one of 12 children born in John Robert Peck (1848-1916) and his wife Hannah (née Talbot) (1850-1935) and was brother of Thomas. His father was a gardener and later worked as a gravedigger/sexton and Joseph grew up at Staffordshire Street (1881/1891) and 79 Norfolk Street (1901). Joseph trained as a tailor and married Flora Rosa Amelia Loveday (1881-1963) in 1905. The couple had four children: Edith Kathleen (1906-1977), Edna May (1909-1932), Bernard William John (1910-1981) and Myrtle Mary (1922-1929). They lived at 3 Oswald Terrace, Sturton Street and he worked as a tailor from home. It is thought Joseph might have served with the Suffolk Regiment in  the 1st World War.
