Hi, Iam looking for the birth of my 2xgt grandfather John Thomas Johnson, I've tried the IGI site and can't find him. If someone could help or point me in the right direction, that would be great. He married Rosa Tennison 22/8/1860 at St James Church in the Parish of Holy Trinity, Kingston upon Hull, both 'of full age' . He was a painter & Living in Kingston St. Hull at the time. His father was Robert Johnson(dec?), a mariner. Also I,be been unable to find them on any census until 1871 when they were living in Heath St. Liverpool,
Help please!
Chris

Baptism

parents: Robert Johnson,? Elizabeth
name: John Thomas Johnson
gender: Male
baptism/christening date: 29 Dec 1836
baptism/christening place: HOLY TRINITY,KINGSTON UPON HULL,YORK,ENGLAND
father's name: Robert Johnson
mother's name: Elizabeth

and his sister

parents: Robert Johnson,? Elizabeth

so it looks as though Robert died between 1844 and 1851.

Back to John Thomas
It looks as though Rosa is a widow in 1881
