The Mitchell Family 


JANUARY. 1916 


The first American Mitchell of note was the Rev. 
Jonathan Mitchell, minister of Cambridge, Mass., the son 
of Jonathan Mitchell, who was born in England in 1624. 
He was brought to this country in 1635 by his parents, who 
sought a refuge from ecclesiastical tyranny in the wilder- 
ness. His father first settled at Concord, Mass., after- 
wards he lived at Saybrook, Wethersfield, and Stamford, 
Conn., and died in 1645. Mr. Mitchell was graduated at 
Harvard college in 1647, having made great acquisitions 
in knowledge. Under the ministry of Mr. Shepard his 
mind was impressed by the truths of religion. While 
at college he kept a diary in Latin. 

When he began to preach, he was invited to settle at 
Hartford, Conn., but he was ordained at Cambridge, Mass., 
as the successor of Mr. Shepard, August 21, 1650. Soon 
after his settlement. President Dunster embraced the 
principles of antipedbaptism. This was a peculiar trial 
to him; but, though he felt it to be his duty to combat the 
principles of his former tutor, he did it with such meekness 
of wisdom, as not to lose his friendship, though the con- 
troversy occasioned his removal from the college. In 
1662 he was a member of the synod, which met in Boston 
to discuss and settle a question concerning church member- 
ship and church discipline, and the result was chiefly writ- 
ten by him. The determination of the question relating 
to the baptism of the children of those who did not ap- 



proach the Lord's table, and the support thus given to 
what is called the half-way covenant, was more owing to 
him than to any other man. Considering baptized per- 
sons as members of the church and liable to its discipline, 
he thought, that their children should be admitted to 

He died July 9, 1668, aged 42. His wife was Margaret, 
daughter of Mr. Shepard. his predecessor. His children 
were John; Nathaniel; Samuel, a graduate of 1681; and 
Jonathan, a graduate of 1687. Mr. Mitchell was eminent 
for piety, wisdom, humility, and love. His vigorous 
powers of mind were diligently cultivated; his memory was 
very retentive; and he had acquired much learning. He 
wrote his sermons with care and yet preached without 
notes, speaking with great majesty, and attaining towards 
the close of his discourses a fervency, which was most ener- 
getic and impressive. His delivery awas inimitable. He 
was frequently called to ecclesiastical councils, and, pos- 
sessing singular acuteness, prudence, and moderation, he 
was well qualified to heal differences. 

Attached to the institutions of the founders of New 
England, he frequently said, that if it should become a 
general opinion, that all persons, orthodox in judgment as 
to matters of faith, and not scandalous in life, should be 
admitted to partake of the Lord's supper without any ex- 
amination concerning the work of saving grace in their 
hearts, it would be a real apostacy from former principles, 
and a degeneracy from the reformation already attained. 
He was faithful and zealous in the discharge of the duties 
of the sacred office. Beside his stated labors on the sab- 
bath, he preached a monthly lecture upon man's misery 
by sin, salvation by Christ, and holy obedience, which was 
much attended by persons from the neighboring towns. 

He published a letter of counsel to his brother, 1664; 
an election sermon, entitled, Nehemiah upon the wall in 

troublesome times, 1667; a letter concerning the subject 
of baptism, 1675; a discourse of the glory to which God 
hath called believers by Jesus Christ, printed in London, 
and reprinted in Boston, in 1721.

trip the young couple traveled to Zanesville. Ohio, on horse- 
back. When they settled in that place there were but twelve 
shingle roofed houses. The Indians were still there, but 
friendly, and would come to the doctor's house to see the 
white papooses. Dr. Mitchell served in the war of 1812, 
and was afterward a general in the Ohio militia. In 1833 
he was elected to Congress, but in 1835 was defeated for 
re-election by his Whig opponent. Dr. Mitchell died the 
13th of November, 1848^ 

Amasa Mitchell, died in Scott Co., Ind., 12 Feb., 
1851, aged 90 years. He was a musician in the Revo- 
lution, under Benedict Arnold. He served afterwards on 
the ship Vulture. He witnessed the execution of Major 
Andre, and was present at the surrender of Cornwallis. 


David Bradie Mitchell, ninth governor of Georgia 
(1809-11 and 1815-17), was born in Scotland 22 October, 
1766. He went to Savannah, Ga.. in 1783, at seventeen 
years of age, to take possession of property willed to him 
by his uncle. Dr. David Bradie, who had been taken pris- 
oner by the British at the capture of Savannah, and died 
in the confinement of the prison ship. Young Mitchell 
read law under Gov. Wm. Stevens, and as clerk of the 
committee to revise the criminal code, learned that branch 
of his profession well. He was elected solicitor-general in 
1795; representative to the legislature in 1796, voting 
against the "Yazoo fraud"; major-general of militia in 
1804, and governor of Georgia in 1809 and 1815, resigning 
in 1817, to accept an appointment from the president of 
the United States as agent to the Creek Indians. In 1818, 
he concluded a treaty with the Indians at the Creek 
agency. Gov. Mitchell was a conscientious, cultured and 
conservative man, possessed of great energy and public 
spirit, and animated by the purest patriotism. He dis- 
cussed practically and ably in his messages every impor- 
tant subject, including roads, rivers, the public debt and 
education. The legislature erected a slab to his memory, 
and a later assembly named a county after him. He died 
at Milledgeville, Ga., 22 April. 1837.

Reverend James Mitchel (the orthography preferred 
by him) was a son of the late Robert Mitchel (born in 
the north of Ireland) and Mary Enos his wife (the latter 
of Edinburg, Scotland, and of Welsh descent). Robert 
Mitchell and family emigrated to America at an early 
period. James Mitchel. his son, was born at Pequa, 
Pennsylvania, 29 January, 1747. The family removed to 
and settled in Bedford Co., Virginia, at an early date. 
James Mitchell was licensed a Presbyterian minister in 
October, 1781. He married Frances, daughter of Rev- 
erend David and Mary Blair Rice. He was known in 
South-west Virginia, as an humble, able, successful preacher 
from the day he was licensed to the day of his death 
which occurred 27 February, 1841. He was aged ninety- 
four years and one month. He left many worthy de- 
scendants, was tenderly loved and venerated and often 
addressed and spoken of as "Father Mitchel." R. D. B.

(To be continued) 



The family name of Mitchell, in some instances may 
have originated from the Anglo Saxon — mycel — meaning 
great or mickle. that is much, but in most cases it is 
supposed to be a Norman name from the Hebrew Michael. 
We find the name Michael belonging to a considerable 
number of persons from the time of Moses to that of 
Ezra, Michael was the father of one of the men sent 
by Moses to search the land of Canaan. On account of 
the meaning of the name, who is like God, it was un- 
doubtedly selected to represent the mighty and mysterious 
Being, who is called Michael in various parts of the 
world of God. "One of the chief princes, the great 
prince which standeth for the children of thy people, 
the warrior prince of the heavenly host." 

In confirmation of the derivation of the name 
Mitchell from Michael, it may be noted that the Mitchells 
of Midlothian, Scotland, sometimes spelled the name 
Mitchael and in England Michal, the latter being identi- 
cal with the feminine form of the name Michael, which 
was bestowed upon the younger daughter of Saul. 

Geoffry Michel, of Great Britain, was a manucaptor 
in 1302. Michelia is the name of a genus of plants. 

There are twenty-four British crests for the name 
Mitchell, twenty-six places of that name besides Mount 
Mitchell in North Carolina, which is 6,710 feet high, and 
the highest mountain east of the Rocky Mountains. 
There are sixty works containing Mitchell genealogy, 

twenty persons of the name have served in the United 
States Congress, and there were fifty-seven Mitchell 
families in Connecticut in 1790. 


John Mitchell, F. R. S., famous botanist and physi- 
cian, came from England to Virginia about the year 
1700. He died in 1772. His residence was chiefly at 
Urbana, a small town on the Rappahannock, about seventy- 
three miles from Richmond. He appears to have been a 
man of observation, acuteness, and enterprise, as well 
as learning. 

He wrote, in 1743, an essay on the causes of the dif- 
ferent colors of people in different climates, which was 
published in the philosophical transactions, vol. 43. 
He attributed the difference of the human complexion 
to the same causes, which have been assigned by Dr. 
Smith, to the influence of climate and modes of life; and 
he thinks that the whites have degenerated more from 
the original complexion in Noah and his family than the 
Indians, or even negroes. The color of the descendants 
of Ham he considers a blessing rather than a curse, as 
without it they could not well inhabit Africa. 

He published also an essay on the preparations and 
uses of the various kinds of potash; a letter concerning 
the force of electrical cohesion; and a useful work on the 
general principles of botany, containing descriptions of 
a number of new genera of plants. It is believed, that 
he was also the author of the map of North America, 
published in 1755; which was accompanied by a large 
pamphlet, entitled, the Contest in America, and followed 
by another, entitled the Present State of Great Britain 
and North America. 1767. His manuscripts on the yel- 
low fever, as it appeared in Virginia in 1742. fell into the 
hands of Dr. Franklin, by whom they were communi- 
cated to Dr. Rush, of Philadelphia.

The Mitchell Family ^' "■ 


JANUARY, 1917 



According to a copy made in 1725 of the original 
"Grand Model" of Charles Town, as laid out previous 
to 1680, lot No. 9 fronting on the Cooper River was "said 
to have been granted to John Mitchell" from which it 
may be inferred that the latter had by that date sold or 
abandoned the property. (South Carolina Hist. Magaz., 
Vol. IX, p. 16). This was probably the same John 
Mitchell to whom the Governor and council granted "one 
lot at ye Oyster point" 19 April. 1679. (S. C. War- 
rants 1672-9, p. 198). 

An Edward Mitchell was born in Charles Town in 
1700. His son James lived in Roanoke County, Virginia, 
and left descendants. (Am. Ancestry, Vol. XI, p. 116). 

A map printed by Harman Mall in 1715 shows that 
at least two Carolina plantations, situated respectively 
on the north and south outlets of the Edisto River, about 
five miles from the coast, were then occupied by families 
named Mitchell. Edward Crisp's map undated, but 
"engraved by John Harris in Bull-head Court, Newgate 
Street. London" — and "sold at the Carolina Coffee House 
inBirchin Lane" gives "Eph. Michel" as the owner of the 
plantation on the South Edisto and "Ja. Michel" as the 
owner of the one on the North Edisto. 

Most of the South CaroHna Mitchells previous to 
1750 were found in Colleton and Granville Counties in 
the southern section of the Colony and were more or less 
closely related. Many of them belonged to a family of 
Scotch Presbyterians who had settled in St. Bartholo- 

icfifj^i'ro sdJ v.- CSV I 

!fio5 ?i. 


mew's Parish about the beginning of the Eighteenth 
Century. The founder of this family was apparently one 
George Mitchell, who died in 1721. Another George 
Mitchell, usually designated as "Senior" and possibly a 
son of the George Mitchell just mentioned, was a planter 
of considerable means living in St. Bartholomew's parish. 
He died in 1736 leaving his widow Hannah and five child- 

(1) John; (2) Joseph; (3) Elizabeth; (4) Rachel; 
(5) Tabitha. Of these, John and Joseph were planters 
and connected as deacons and otherwise with the manage- 
ment of the Scotch Presbyterian Churches at Pon Pon 
and Will Town, which from 1728 onwards were under the 
authority of the Edinburg Presbytery. 

In 1731 a William Mitchell was appointed a 
juryman for the Parish of St. Helena, and Daniel 
Mitchell and Ephriam Mitchell jurymen for St. Paul's 
Parish. In the same year Ephriam Mitchell (variously 
spelled "Michel," "Michael" and "Mickell") secured 
a grant of 300 acres of land in St. Helena's Parish. 
(Vol. 1 of Grants, p. 276, Secretary of State's Office.) 
He died in 1743, leaving his widow Elizabeth, 
daughter of William Hazard, and four children; 
(I) John; (2) Joseph; (3) Benjamin; (4) Elizabeth. 
In his will he mentioned 100 pounds left by his father 
to the Baptist Church at Edisto. 

In 1734 George Mitchell joined the St. 
Andrew Society in Charlestown, and the same year 
James Mitchell of Edisto Island and his wife 
Martha (daughter of John Sams) obtained a hundred acres 
of land on Edisto Island adjoining the plantation of Paul 

In the South Carolina Gazette for 29 April, 1732, is 
noted the arrival from Barbadoes of the Ship Concord 
under command of Charles Mitchell. 


In 1735 Moses Mitchell bought land in the 
town of Dorchester, St. George's Parish. Two years 
later he purchased a pew in St, Philip's Church, and 
secured a large grant of land from the Crown, situated in 
Berkley County. 

In 1736, Lewis Mitchell, a native of Switzer- 
land, secured grants of land in Purrysburg Township, 
Granville County. (Vol. 9, pp. 371-4 of Grants in office 
of Secretary of State). This gentleman seems to have 
been the same man described in a letter written by John 
Barnwell in 1712 in the following terms: 

"I must not forget one Mr. Mitchell, a Swiss brave 
gentleman who for true valor and presence of mind in ye 
midst of action accompanied with a gentle obliging car- 
riage and ingenious to a great degree rendered him ye 
most acceptable companion in this my last Ramble. 
This good tempered gentleman is an agent here of the 
Canton of Bern, he had a mind to see South Carolina. 
I whetted his inclination as much as I could by showing 
the difference between the two governments" (Vol. 6 
Virginia Magaz. of Hist., p. 48). 

The first wife of Dr. Thomas Waring who died in 
1744 was a Miss Mitchell ("Our Forefathers, Their 
Homes and Churches, p. 36). 

In 1737 William Mitchell secured the grant 
of some land in Orangeburg Township, and the same 
year Moses Mitchell obtained a grant in the 
adjoining town of Amelia. 

In the South Carolina Gazette of 26 March, 1737 is 
noted the arrival of the "Brigt. Hopewell, Wm. Mitchell 
from Barbadoes, and in the same issue is a note reading 
"Lately arrived from Ireland and Barbadoes a small 
parcel of Irish Linen Cloth, Rum and Sugar, which are 
to be sold by Wm. Mitchell at his store on the Bay. at 
Mr. Henry Williams at the Monmouthshire Tavern, at 
a reasonable price for ready Money." 

In 1738 John Mitchell (probably the son of 
George Mitchell "Senior") obtained grants of land in 
Colleton County, and in 1741, three grants in Granville 

George Mitchell ("Junior") was a surgeon 
and probably the nephew of George Mitchell, "Senior," 
near whom he lived. He died in 1740 without wife or 
children. It appears from his will that he was the son 
of Hugh Mitchell and Janet, his wife, of Dalzam 
Parish, County of Ayr, Scotland. His brothers were 
Hugh Mitchell of Edinburgh, and the Rev. Andrew 
Mitchell, a Presbyterian minister of the County of Ayr. ' 
He had also two sisters, Mrs. Jane Campbell and Mrs. 
Agnes Logan, both of Scotland. 

John Mitchell of Christ Church Parish died 
in 1741. His will mentions no relatives but only a 
friend, Joseph Severance, who is named sole executor. 

In 1743 Charles Mitchell was married to 
Martha Tomlinson in St. Philip's Church. 

Daniel Mitchell of St. John's Parish, Colle- 
ton, died in 1746, leaving a wife, Catherine, and a son, 
Daniel, also a nephew John Beckett. 

In 1746 Joseph Mitchell of Colleton County, 
evidently the son of George Mitchell, Sr., died. His 
will mentions his wife Martha, son William and brother 

In 1749 Robert Mitchell joined the St. An- 
drew Society in Charles Town. 

Thomas Mitchell was a well known planter of 
George Town in the middle of the eighteenth century. 

Mitchell's History of Bridgewater says: "There 
was a John Mitchell in Marshfield in 1825, aged eighty- 
five years, whose father, John Mitchell, came from Old 
York, Me. His grandfather was killed by the Indians. 
His father told him he was related to the Mitchells of

(To be CoQtinued) 

At least two of the Virginia family of Mitchells — Cap- 
tain James and Captain Thomas Mitchell — were bold 
soldier boys. Both were at the battle of Point Pleasant, 
10 October. 1774. 



The Mitchells were settled in Virginia by the middle 
of the eighteenth century, perhaps earlier. An entry 
in the diary of James Gordon, of Richmond, 
Va., mentions the Mitchells: "January 1, 1759 — Dr. 
Robertson and his young wife came here according to the 
Dr.'s custom. Very agreeable company and good dinner. 
Mr. Dale Carter and Mr. Payne here. Miss Flood came 
in our chair to Mr. Camm's. John Mitchell and his 
wife came at night in the rain." 

The whole neighborhood must have been a "merry- 

Colonel Gordon was the most hospitable of hosts. 
One day he writes: "We had no company, which is sur- 
prising." This neglect was remedied a day afterward: 
"Mr. William Churchill, his wife and five children came, 
and Mrs. Carter and her son and Miss Judith Bassett." 
Colonel Gordon married (the youngest daughter of Colonel 
Edwin Conway,) Milicent, whose tapering fingers would 
not retain the wedding ring— sad omen, for Milicent 
died at the age of 19, six years after her marriage, leaving 
two little daughters.
