The Johnson Family (Loftin Branch)

 

 

Name Origin: ENGLAND
The name Johnson originates in England.  The name literally means "Son of John". 
The name Johnson is also derived from the Hebrew name "Johanan", meaning "Jehovah has favored".  Johnson was an extremely popular in the Middle Ages as a result of the numerous connections between the name John and the Christian Church.
The name is first found in Lincolnshire, England, where the Johnson family had been granted lands by Duke William on his conquest of England in 1066.
