I believe he was also a seaman in Sweden so I don't think he would have paid his way over, more likely worked on a boat over or jumped ship.

When did his wife Margaret die?

Hi
Do you have his marriage certificate? It should state his father's name.

Ian
Yes: Anglicanized, John Johnson

What was his father's occupation.

Could this be Andrew in 1911:

Hi Ian, Margaret died in 1903.
Yes, that 1911 census looks like him. I don't know how I missed this. When I started my research that was about 12 years ago. So I am checking what I had entered.
The Marriage certificate. Yes I have it but I can't find it I was looking yesterday. I will make a correction, I have his fathers name as 'John Andrew Johnson' I have nor recorded an occupation so it might not have been there.

If you could find his father's occupation it might help a lot.

I can't find that 1911 census on Ancestry so that is how I missed it. I will have to do a wider search for that Marriage Certificate. Thanks for all your help it is much appreciated.
