    JOHNSON, SAMUEL (1709-1784). Moralist, essayist, and lexicographer, s. of a bookseller at Lichfield, received his early education at his native town, and went in 1728 to Oxf., but had, owing to poverty, to leave without taking a degree. For a short time he was usher in a school at Market Bosworth, but found the position so irksome that he threw it up, and gained a meagre livelihood by working for a publisher in Birmingham. In 1735, being then 26, he m. Mrs. Porter, a widow of over 40, who brought him 800, and to whom he was sincerely attached. He started an academy at Ediol, near Lichfield, which, however, had no success, only three boys, one of whom was David Garrick ( q.v. ), attending it. Accordingly, this venture was given up, and J. in 1737 went to London accompanied by Garrick. Here he had a hard struggle with poverty, humiliation, and every kind of evil, always, however, quitting himself like the true man he was. He contributed to the Gentleman's Magazine , furnishing the parliamentary debates in very free and generally much improved form, under the title of "Debates of the Senate of Lilliput." In 1738 appeared

    Johnson, Samuel 1846 to 1901 Anglican Nigeria
    Yoruba minister, diplomat, and historian. Johnson was born in Hastings, Sierra Leone. His father was Henry Johnson, a liberated African descended from the former king of Oyo in Yorubaland; his elder brother was Henry Johnson. When Samuel was ten years old, David Hinderer recruited his father for Yorubaland as his assistant in Ibadan. Samuel attended the Hinderers' school, and the Abokuta Training Institution. In 1865 he became schoolmaster at Aremo, Ibadan, and catechist there in 1876, taking increasing responsibility in the frequent prolonged absence of missionary staff. He also traveled to keep contact with the scattered Christians beyond Ibadan. During the Yoruba Wars (1877 - 1893), he became an emissary, trusted on all sides, between the Ibadan chiefs, the king of Oyo, and the British. During a visit from the bishop of Sierra Leone in 1886, he was ordained deacon and priest and, after a brief period at Ondo, in 1887 became pastor at Oyo. There he remained until his untimely death.

    Johnson, Samuel 1846 to 1901 Anglican Nigeria
    Nigerian churchman and historian, famous for his history of the Yoruba. His father was one of the Saros, the people who came to Nigeria in the 1840s from Sierra Leone having lived there as "recaptives" taken off slave ships by the British Navy or as children born to such people in Freetown. They usually came from areas within modern Nigeria, many of them being Yorubas. He was from the Oyo area and claimed descent from the Alaafin Abiodun of Oyo. He was enslaved, freed at sea and resettled in Freetown. Like other recaptives he was given the European names Henry Johnson when baptized. Henry Johnson and his wife Sarah had several sons who became famous in Nigeria, where they moved in 1857 to join the Church Missionary Society (CMS) mission under Rev. David Hinderer at Ibadan. The eldest, Henry, became a famous archdeacon with the CMS. The second, Nathaniel worked for the CMS as a teacher and catechist. The third, Samuel, was a clergyman and historian, and the fourth Obadiah, was the second Nigerian in the country's history to qualify as a medical doctor.

    Samuel Johnson Quotes
    Almost every man wastes part of his life attempting to display qualities which he does not possess. Let me smile with the wise, and feed with the rich. To do nothing is in everyone's power. He who waits to do a great deal of good at once, will never do anything. Knowledge is of two kinds. We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information upon it. Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel. No man ever yet became great by imitation. It is necessary to hope...for hope itself is happiness. Nature has given women so much power that the law has very wisely given them little. He who makes a beast of himself gets rid of the pain of being a man. The martial character cannot prevail in a whole people but by the diminution of all other virtues. I would rather be attacked than unnoticed. For the worst thing you can do to an author is to be silent as to his works. Curiosity is one of the most permanent and certain characteristics of a vigorous intellect. Leave all the afternoon for exercise and recreation, which are as necessary as reading. I will rather say more necessary because health is worth more than learning.

      Johnson had a cat, whom he described as 'a very fine cat indeed' and for whom he bought oysters. What was the cat's name? The Life Of Samuel Johnson

        Hodge . As a cat-lover myself, I find Johnson's fondness for Hodge one of his most endearing traits. I wish Boswell had told us more about Hodge, and I'm grateful to Polygon for pointing out that there's more information about him at http://www.moggies.co.uk/stories/finecat.html
      In 1777, Johnson played a leading part in an unsuccessful campaign to secure a reprieve for William Dodd, a clergyman who had been sentenced to death. What was Dodd's crime? The Life Of Samuel Johnson

        Forgery . Dodd was a popular preacher and had been tutor to the fifth Earl of Chesterfield, the son of Johnson's patron. He ran into debt and forged Chesterfield's signature to a bond. The death sentence was not commuted, and on June 27, 1777 he was carted from Newgate Prison to Tyburn and publicly hanged.
      In January 1759 Johnson produced 'Rasselas', and asked for an advance of thirty pounds from his publisher. For what was this money needed?
