The Johnson family are descendants of Samuel Curtis JohnsonWikipedia-W.svg,[1] founder of S C Johnson & Son Inc.[2] Samuel Curtis started out in 1886 selling parquet floors in Racine, Wisconsin, when he realised that there were more floors than there were products to keep them clean. He mixed his first batch of Johnson’s Wax in his bathtub - and the rest, as they say, is history.[3]

The Johnson family members are ranked 9th on Forbes magazine’s list of the richest families in the USA, with a combined estimated net worth of $28.8bn.[4] See also Wikipedia for a list of Johnson family members.
