Thomas Johnson

It has not been possible to identify with certainty Thomas Johnson through the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website.

However, we know that a number of Johnsons lived locally.

A Mr Johnson was the Showroom Manager of the Hampton Court Gas Co for twenty six years. In 1937 he lived at 1 The Terrace, Hampton Wick.

Various traders with the surname can be identified. A John Johnson had a tearooms at 6 Bridge Approach between 1901 and 1903 and again between 1908 and 1913. A Mrs E Johnson had a confectioner’s shop at 11 High Street in 1916. By 1917 she had moved (possibly because she had been bereaved if she was Thomas’s widow?). A Frederick Johnson had tea rooms at another location (this time 25 High Street) in 1937.

Thomas was, possibly, related to these traders.

The first phase of this Project is to gather information about the men commemorated on the Hampton Wick War Memorial who fought in the Great War, also known as World War I, WWI or the First World War.
