Sir John Johnson, who assumed the office in 1771 at the age of 30, was the last Provincial Grand Master of Masons in the colonies of Province of New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. In 1774 at his father’s death, Johnson succeeded to the baronetcy and inherited his father’s title and extensive estates, making him a wealthy landowner. Johnson’s parents, Catherine Weissenberg and Sir William Johnson were never married and so he was Baptised John Wysen Bergh by Rev. Henry Barclay February 7, 1741/2.

Johnson took as a common-law wife Clarissa Putman, daughter of Arent Putman and Elizabeth Peek of Tribes Hill, New York, from 1765 to 1773. She was of Dutch ancestry. They had a daughter Margaret in 1765, and a son William in 1770. On June 30, 1773, Johnson married Mary Watts (daughter of Hon. John Watts President of the King’s Council, of New York).

After she was freed to join Sir John in Canada, the couple lived in Montreal during the winter and spent the summers on their seigneury at Argenteuil, Ottawa on the Ottawa River. Mary Watts and Sir John Johnson had ten sons and eight daughters. One son, James Stephen Johnson, was killed at the siege of Badajoz, in 1814. Their daughter Catherine Maria Johnson married Major-General Bernard Foord Bowes, who fell at Salamanca, in 1812. Their first son Adam Gordon Johnson (1781-1843)... Their daughter, Anne Nancy Johnson, married Colonel Edward MacDonnell (Deputy Quartermaster General to the Forces. Source: The Things That Catch My Eye
