    In "The Hirtory of Historical Writing in America , 1891, John Franklin Jameson said; "as an average Puritan of the middle class. He was a Kentish farmer, and probably also a shipwright, who came out in the same fleet with Governor Winthrop in 1630. A dozen years later, he was, in company with half a dozen others, one of the founders of the new town of Woburn. The stout Kentishman, having put his hand to the plough, chose to remain in the town he had helped to plant. He had always an important part in the affairs of the town, was chosen selectman nearly every year, was again and again elected to represent the town in the general court or legislature of the colony, acted as town clerk, and was captain of the train-band. He was, therefore, more or less concerned in the public affairs in the colony, but never had a leading part in them. Though he was a more prominent, a wealthier, and perhaps a more intelligent man than most of his fellow citizens, we may well enough take him as in most respects a type of the rank and file of the original settlers".

From an unknown source;
"Captain Edward Johnson was born in 1599, and before emigrating to New England, resided at Herne Hill, near Canterbury, County of Kent, England. His Will indicates that he was possessed of a comfortable estate consisting of a farm and two other pieces of property. On embarking from England with his family he is classed as a joiner. This may have been in part of evasion, as no one above the rank of mechanic or serving man was allowed to leave without special permission. As several of his sons and grandsons were shipwrights and carpenters, it is not improbable that he carried on the business of shipbuilding at Herne Bay. However, he did not engage in any mechanical occupation after his arrival in New England.
    Early in April, 1630, Capt. Johnson, without his family, embarked in one of the ships of the fleet which brought Governor Winthrop and his company to Massachusetts Bay. The records show him trading on the Merrimac River, and it is probable that he came for traffic and adventure and that he returned to England in the summer of 1631.
    He returned with his family, in 1636, a zealous Puritan and in full sympathy with the religious system of the Massachusetts Colony. His ruling motive was no longer business or pleasure but in building up a Puritan Commonwealth in this western world. Embarking this time at Sandwich, the nearest seaport at which there was foreign travel, he settled temporarily at Charleston. From that time to the day of his death the Records of Charlestown, of Woburn, and the Colony are filled with his name and deeds.
    He was of the committee of the Charlestown church "for the erecting of a church and town" at Woburn and was the first Recorder (town Clerk). He was generally known as the father of the town. May 10, 1643, he took his seat in the General Court as deputy from the town of Woburn, the first session of the court after the incorporation of the town. For thirty years he was not only town clerk and representative in the general court, but he usually was Chairman of the Selectmen and occupied some prominent place on commission and committees, especially legal and military committees.
    Captain Johnson had evidently given considerable attention to military matters in England, and there acquired the rank by which he has since been know. Soon after his second arrival we find his name in the Charlestown Records with the prefix of Captain, a title of honor which in those days was not given at random. On becoming a deputy to the General Court, he was placed on nearly every military committee. These were intrusted with most extraordinary powers such as inspecting fortifications, levying fines, collecting arrearages, etc. He gathered and drilled a squad of militia at Woburn soon after its settlement, and always held a command in the militia of the Colony. He was often sent out on expeditions to treat with or overawe the Indians and to deal with troublesome neighbors. His name scarcely ever appears in the Massachusetts Records without his military title.
    For more than two hundred years, tradition has ascribed to him the authorship of Wonder Working Providence, a quaint and anthentic narrative of events connected with the settlement of Massachusetts Bay. It is acknowledged to be the most important book on the Massachusetts Colony that was printed during the first hundred years after the settlement. The fraudulent use made of this work in the collection known as the Gorges Tracts for a time robbed the author of the credit due him, but the true authorship has beyond a doubt has been established by Dr. Poole, the famous librarian."

She was born Abt. 1635 in Dorchester, Suffolk Co, MA, and died Dec 27, 1707 in Woburn, Middlesex Co, MA.

Major William Johnson was the third son of Capt. Edward and Susan Johnson. He was born in England in 1629 or 1630. He came to Massachusetts with his parents and resided at Woburn. He was elected Deputy for Woburn in 1674, 1676, and each subsequent year until 1684 when he was chosen Assistant and hence became Magistrate. He succedded his father as Clerk of the Town of Woburn, as Selectman, as commander of the militia, and as commissioner, etc. He seems to have inherited the mental and moral qualities of his father. Like his father, he bore a conspicuous part in defending the chartered rights of the Colony. He was one of a zealous party who stood out resolutely for the old charter and failing in this would have no charter at all.
He married at Woburn, May 16, 1655, Esther Wiswall, the daughter of Thomas Wiswall who was a ruling elder of the church at Newton. She was baptised twenty years before their marriage. Both died at Woburn, Major William May 22, 1704, aged seventy-four years, and his wife Dec. 27, 1707. They had nine children.
