I did find Bedlington Deaths for John and Jane Johnson to show I am still trying  :0
However I dont think they help much as which one belongs to who.

A Jane Johnson died in Bedlington inn1701, 1741 and 1771
A John Johnson died in Bedlington in 1721, 1733, 1735, 1752 and 1774

If there is only one Jane then 1741 would likely  be the date for her.

If there is only one John 1721 1733 and 1735 are not out of the question at all

I checked the Bedlington records today for John and Jane.

Marriages -

Nov. 15 1688 ‘John Johnson of West Sligburn to Jane Hunter of Camboise both of the towne and p. of Bedlington’

I would say these are the parents of the two girls baptised 1689 and 1693

Then there’s

June 9 1698 ‘John Johnson and Jane Bullock of West Sligburn’

These two are going to be the parents of Henry and his siblings

There was no sign of a burial for anyone called Jane Johnson from 1692 to 1698 so I think we can assume that these two couples are separate entities.

Looking further back in the Bedlington records there is a baptism on 12 June 1662 of John son of Henerey and Barbary Johnson.  Location given as Westsligbourne.

Given the birth year he could be either John but with his father’s name being Henry (Henerey!) this could well be your Henry’s father and his father’s name would support this.

Either way sadly this is as far as you are likely to be able to take your Johnson family as Bedlington records go back no further than 1653.

What can I say to thank everyone who has helped me on this wonderful board.
I think you know how I feel and I tried to a lot by myself but I will honestly say I never ever
in my wildest dreams thought I would get my Johnson surname back to where you managed.


c-side tickety and  the others who went out of their way putting up with my questions and totally wrong rationales I came to, thank you so much.

When my wife and I come to the UK next year on our dream trip I know the Bedlington area will now be on our itinerary.
