Have you looked for George on the 1871 or 1881 census?  Failure to register a birth only became a fineable offence in 1874/5 so it's possible his birth wasn't registered

Unfortunately Johnson is a very common surname and you don't seem certain of his birthplace

Have you tried using GRO online to find Johnson births with a mothers maiden name of White?  Registration is free as is any search

Could he be the George Johnson who in 1881 was a Scholar age 10 bn Gt Yarmouth
RG11 / 1946 f30 p3   :-\  I can't see him on the next census

Perhaps you could give us details from the birth certificate that you have which you have discounted  ;)
