Please email me, I am looking for Johnsons in Yorkshire in probably the same areas as you. We could share notes maybe.

My great grandmother was called Anne and her dad was called Harry.

Look forward to hearing from you.

That's so funny that two brothers with the same name had a paint and decorating business and lived in Leeds. Not heard the names Pamela or David.Think we are all confused now. Oh well cant be the same family.Thanks for answering my mail.

Hi Johnsons from Leeds, Yorkshire.
My great grandparents, George Johnson and Julia Ann Sullivan moved from Kent to Yorkshire between the 1871 1nd 1881 censuses. They moved with 10 of their 11 children the eldest, Charlotte, my grandmother, was already employed and remained in Kent. Some of their children were: Jane, Matilda, Hester, George, John, Samuel, Alice, Julia-that is all I can remember for the moment. Are you researching any of these children?

I don't think there is a link to my family but you never know. Grandfather was called Arthur and Grandmother was called Mahala they lived in Leeds and also lived in a small town called Ravensthorpe. My farther was called Philip. I do know that Arthur brother called Frank had about 8 kids but don't know any of there names. This would be in the 1930 round about.The names you state don't ring any bells.
Good luck with searching i have fond that there is a lot of Johnson in Leeds.
