Beatrice "Beattie" Pearson (née Tatlock) was Albert Tatlock's daughter.

Born on 21st August 1933, Beattie and grew up in Coronation Street, Weatherfield, where she and her parents Albert and Bessie Tatlock lived at No. 1. During World War II, Beattie was sent to Blackpool. The time away from her parents caused her to grow away from them, and they never got along well afterwards. Albert lived out his days in the same house, but Beattie married Norman Pearson and moved to elsewhere in Weatherfield.

Beattie kept in contact with some of the neighbours, including the Barlow family. Ida Barlow was a frequent visitor at Beattie's house, and when Ida went missing in 1961 her family thought she was at Beattie's. She had in fact been run over by a bus.

When Albert was older, he was constantly encouraged to live with Beattie, as she could take care of him, but neither of them were keen; Beattie told him they hadn't the room, but Albert hated the idea anyway as he knew he wasn't wanted. Beattie was still worried about Albert, and when he was in hospital after being gassed by a faulty cooker in 1973, Beattie got £5 compensation out of plumber Jerry Booth. Albert wasn't very happy when he found out and let Beattie know he didn't want compensation.

In the 1980s, with Albert in his late 80s, Beattie visited him more often, both to make sure he was comfortable and to look after her investment. She disapproved of Ken and Deirdre Barlow setting up home at No.1 when they got married in 1981, although Ken had lived there for years and took care of Albert. Beattie accused them of trying to push Albert away, but Deirdre reminded her that Beattie should have been the one taking care of Albert.

Already feeling edged out, Beattie was furious when Albert announced he was selling the house to the Barlows rather than leaving it to Beattie in his will. He didn't feel she deserved the house.

When Albert died while visiting Beattie in 1984, Beattie arranged the funeral and convinced herself she had been the perfect daughter. Ken and Deirdre kept hold of No.1.
