Johnson is my maiden name. I am aware that it is a pretty common surname, but is anyone a Johnson from the Stoke on Trent area?
i love the name johnson it has been around sense 1199-1266
It's hard to believe how many people have shared this last name, especially considering how old it is.
Awesome! except that I only have the last name Johnson because of my uncle's wife.
I had finished my autobiography of 200 pages about 3 years ago and now I'm writing again and this entertains family surnames which happens to be a great-grandfather name David Johnson from Canada in 1807. The Smith genealogy was traced to Egypt and the gypsies.
I can't be live that the name Johnson is a king's name before the middle ages

Not surprised Johnson - 'God has favoured me with a son' in our case I had 3 sons my father Gordon Johnson had 4 sons and his father William Edwin Johnson had 5 sons!
Researching my name including hints of origins from family middle names such as DeGrafton, Pogue, and Stonewall. Appears to be a Norman name with 11th century origins from the Norse raiders.....the Normans later appearing in 1066 with the invasion of England. Possibly associated with the Clan Gunn of Scotland as well.
I wish I could figure out when and were the name Johnson splits off to joinson
