My Great Great Grandfather John Johnson was born in 1821 in Denmark. My Grandmother told me that the family name was Johannsen.
John came to England where he became Naturalised British and settled in Madron near Penzance, Cornwall. He died there in 1899.
John was a Master Mariner, as was his son John Henry, and he married Rosanna Burgess in Madron Church. They went on to live in the Penzance area where, as I have visited, the houses still remain as they would have been in the 1800s.
I am desperately searching for my Danish roots - PLEASE can anyone help!
