John Johnson

Classification: Query
Surnames: Johnson / Rosevear/ Johannson
JJ is my Great x2 Paternal Grandfather. Born in 1821 in Denmark he was a seaman and then a Master Mariner.
He took British Nationality to continue his career at sea and brought up a large family in Penzance Cornwall. Two of his girls left England for Australia and America. I am in touch with their families.
I know SO much about him and his wife Rosanna Rosevear Burgess. I have visited his old houses in Penzance. I have tried desperately hard in Denmark to trace his and my roots but to no avail.
But the name Johnson is a common one and my Grandmother told me the family changed the name when they came to England from Johannson.

Do YOU know anything about him? Where did we come from ?
Do you live in Cornwall and know something about the Johnson family?
Are we related?
Through Rosanna's family I am also related to the Rosevears so does that help in tracing my John Johnson?
Can anyone help?!
