Johnston Genealogy & History

Johnston is an English and Scottish name. It is a locational name, derived from the place of the same name in Annandale, Dumfriesshire. According to Johnston family history legend, the founder of the family was named Jonis, and he was granted the lands of Johnston around 1174; to his name, he attached the word "tone" or "toun", from the Old English "tun", meaning "settlement", thus forming Johnston.
