Default Henry JOHNSON

Name - "official" name and what they were known as
Henry Johnson
Date and place of birth

Names of parents
Probably Thomas Johnson and Mary Ann nee Highland
Date and place of baptism - if applicable
Probably 19 April 1807 at St Matthew Bethnal Green
Details of each of his or her marriages - if any
Married Elizabeth Ann Franklin 28 Jun 1830 at St John Hackney.

Addresses where they lived (including county if in UK) - and please list which censuses you have or haven't found him/her on (if s/he lived in census times!).

Lindsay, have you seen this baptism? http://search.ancestry.co.uk/iexec?h...c=&pid=6560841

They're at Crown Court, occ weaver but it's another Henry which is odd

Thanks for looking, Asa.

I think that's a mistake. There's an identical baptism, but for Elizabeth on the same date with the same dob - presumably the original and the BT. There's an Elizabeth of the right age with the family in the census.
