Here is some more on Prescott Johnstons

1861 census Hawkesbury Prescott

JOHNSTON
Robert, farmer, b Upper Canada [Ontario],25
Francis, b Ireland, 55
William, b UC, 23
Mary, b UC, 18
Margret, b UC, 16
Hugh, b UC, 14
Isabelle, UC, 12

1861 census Plantagenet Prescott

JOHNSTON
Robert, farmer, b Ireland, 53
Mary, b Ireland, 41
Margret, UC, 21
Elizabeth, UC, 20
John, UC, 18
Isabella, UC, 16
Robert, UC, 14
Archibald, 11, UC
William, UC, 9
Christopher C, UC, 6
Mary, UC, 3

Could this be your Francis and Robert? No relationships are given on the 1861 census.

Here's something
1861 census
JOHNSON
Chauncey, merchant, UC, 49
Phila S, 45
Edward P, 25 [name may be Eden]
Sarah J, 24
A S, 1

Either living with the above or next door is:
JOHNSON
Lynes H, 22
Sarah A, 10,
Chauncey E, 17
Maria E, 23

Chauncey is given as Thomas Hall Johnston's father so this could be a brother?

This is very disjointed. Sorry.
1851 census
JOHNSON
Chauncey, J P, farmer, b Vermont USA, 70
Hannah, b Vermont USA, 67
Parthence, niece, b Canada, 29, visiting from Hawkesbury
Parthence, daughter of niece, 11, visiting from Hawkesbury

Could this be Thomas Hall Johnston's father?
Chauncey isn't all that common a name - not like Johnston!
The initials JP are entered behind the name like this, Chauncey, Johnson JP so maybe he was a Justice of the Peace.

Chauncey Johnson

If you think that this is your Johnson family let me know as I think I have found some marriages of the children of the above Chauncey and Phila.
Marriage: Eden Philo Johnson, 41, b L'Original, living same, widow, merchant, s/o Chauncey Johnson & Phila S Cushman, married Helen Isabella Treadwell, 18 Sep 1877, L'Original, Prescott # 009270.
Thought I would just give it to you as I may not find it again.
Also, Chauncey Johnson, L'Original, married Sarah Ann Metcalfe, eldest daughter of Rev Franklin Metcalfe of East Hawkesbury, 24 August 1853 [Ontario marriage notices]

Also 12 Oct 1840,William Kingston, teacher in the UC Academy and Maria, only daughter of Chauncey Johnson, of Longueil.
Chauncey Eden is definately a family name as I can follow it through to a marriage in 1918.

From Weslayan Methodist Baptisms

Robert George Johnston, s/o George and Margaret, born 8 Feb 1861, christened Aug 07 1865, Hawkesbury, Prescott County.

Hope this helps.
