Sweden

Hi All

Ok this one has had me stumped for a while.

My Great Great Grandfather was John Peter Johnson, born in Sweden in about 1843. Living in Toxteth Liverpool by the 1860's. All census records just say " Born Sweden "

Is there any way I can find out when he came here? or where in Sweden he came from? Or am I unable to go anywhere with this small info?

Another thing is that assume he may have changed his name to an English version on arrival in Liverpool? His marriage certificate in Liverpool list his surname as Johnseon? Is it possible he could have Swedish names?

ie

John -Johan?

Peter-Petter?

Johnson-Johansson?

Im just guessing these names.

Cheers

Ant
