William Samuel Johnson was one of the best educated of the Founding Fathers. His knowledge of the law led him to oppose taxation without representation as a violation of the colonists' rights as Englishmen, but his strong ties with Great Britain made renunciation of the King personally reprehensible.

JOHNSON, William Samuel, a Delegate and a Senator from Connecticut; born in Stratford, Conn., on October 7, ; was tutored privately by his father; graduated from Yale College in and from Harvard College in ; studied law; admitted to the bar and practiced in Stratford; member, colonial house of representatives, and of the upper house.

Samuel Johnson (Octo – January 6, ) was a clergyman, educator, linguist, encyclopedist, historian, and philosopher in colonial America.
