JOHNSON, Isaac, colonist, born in Clipsham, Rutlandshire, England; died in Boston, 30 September, 1630. He first came to this country with Winthrop, arriving at Salem on 12 June, 1630, and was one of the four that founded the first church at Charlestown on 30 July of that year. The lack of good water at Charlestown induced them, on 7 September, to remove to Shawmut, now Boston, which was settled under Johnson's supervision. He was the richest man in the colony, and was noted for his goodness and wisdom.--His wife, Arbella, died in Salem about 30 August, 1630, was the daughter of Thomas, 14th Earl of Lincoln. She accompanied her husband to New England, and suffered much from the hardships that the early colonists had to endure. In her honor, the name of "The Eagle," Winthrop's ship, was changed to "The Arbella."
