History

William Arthur Johnson was born in Bombay. The Duke of Wellington was his godfather. Although intended for the army, Johnson, after migrating to Upper Canada in 1831, entered the Anglican Church. He was a curate to Archdeacon A.N. Bethune at Cobourg. However, his tractarian tendencies made him unpopular and he was made rector of St.Philip's at Etobicoke, a remote village across the river from Weston. There he established a school that was to become Trinity College School. Among Johnson's pupils was William Osler, who regarded Johnson as one of his mentors.
