We devote five pages to this family, descended from George Johnson and Sarah Batchelor, which was long established in the Stepney/St George in the East area of London. It was connected over several generations to the tobacco cutting and rolling trade. It’s not the easiest name to research as several Johnson families lived in this area during the latter half of the 19th century. We cannot find any common ancestor. They had links by marriage to the Chapple and Parris families.
