    • Notes: 
    • Some sources list the parents of John Johnson as Isaac Johnson and Lady Arbella Fiennes, daughter of Thomas, 3rd Earl of Lincoln. According to Robert Charles Anderson in his The Great Migration Begins: Immigrants to New England 1620-1633, Vol. 2, Isaac Johnson and Lady Arbella Fiennes had no issue.

      Gerald Garth Johnson also debunks the myth that John Johnson was the son of Isaac Johnson and Lady Arbella Fiennes in his book The Biography and Genealogy of Captain John Johnson from Roxbury, Massachusetts (2000) on page 62. He also debunks other theories about John Johnson's parentage (pp. 62-67).
