Isaac was an ordained deacon and priest, educated at Emmanual College. He was a Puritan Adventurer, on the committee forming the new Massachusetts Bay Colony.

Isaac was the husband of Lady Arbella (after whom the Winthrop Fleet's flagship was named), daughter of Thomas, third Earl of Lincoln. He was "probably the most nobly connected of the early immigrants, Isaac Johnson was a wealthy supporter of Winthrop's camp. The tragic early deaths of the Lady Arbella, and then some months later, his own, were incalculable losses to the infant colony."S1
