William was the first Town Clerk of Manly Council in the 1880s.
There is very little information relating to this man. You would think that holding a position such as this there would be a profile of information on him. However the only known information given by him on a document was that his father was John Johnson and his mother was Maria Cox and he was born in Parramatta about 1840.
To date I have not been able to find any information on either of his parents.
If there is anyone out there who has any information I would appreciate their contacting me.
