Johnson ~ First Generation
Married Mary, surname unknown.
Residents of Birmingham, England. In the 1835 Directory of Birmingham (ref www.historicaldirectories.org) there is a William Johnson, Coach Spring Maker, address Bank Alley, which may be the same one.
They are possibly the couple listed in the 1841 census.
Warwickshire, England. Civil Parish of Birmingham. Sub-Registration District of St Peter. Address: Bank Alley.
William Johnson. Age 69. Smith. Not born in Warwickshire.
Mary Johnson. Age 71. Not born in Warwickshire.
Neither found in 1851 census.
There are many deaths of William Johnson in Birmingham between 1841 and 1851, and similarly with Mary Johnson.
Findmypast has been searched for burials but there are many possibilities with no ages attached.
William Johnson and Mary are listed as the parents at the christening of Thomas Johnson on 6 July 1805 at Saint Phillips, Birmingham, Warwick, England. It is very likely that this is the correct Thomas Johnson for the next generation of this family tree.
Johnson is a very common name in Birmingham at this time and there are many children (including overlapping families) baptised as the children of a William and Mary Johnson at the same church (Saint Phillips, Birmingham), including Thomas below, so it is not possible to say whether he had any siblings.
