Richard Johnson Line Reports
Reports on the Line of Col. Richard Johnson of King William Co.
We are extremely grateful to Peter Foden for his assistance in
documenting this family. He is a freelance archivist, paleographer,
tutor and genealogical researcher, and a graduate of Cambridge and
Liverpool Universities. Based near Nottingham, he is ideally located
for research into the Pilgrim Fathers and other First Families from the
East Midland counties of Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire and
Nottinghamshire. The analysis and deciphering of historical documents
are his specialties, having taught medieval and early modern English
and Latin Paleography for the Universities of Birmingham, Keele,
Leicester and Oxford. He has also developed interests in the history of
the family (1200-1900) through a module taught for the University of
Nottingham in 2006. For more information and contact details, see his
