THE MITCHELL MEDLEY 

(Battle Hymn of the Mitchells) 






3eC 



{Tune: Battle Hymn of the Republic) 
In England, Wales and Scotland, and the Emerald Isle as well, 
In U. S. A. and Canada, in city, plain and dell, 

Where English tongue is spoken — that is where the Mitchells dwell. 
The clan goes marching on! 

Glory to the name of Mitchell! 

Glory to the tribe of Mitchell! 

Sa-pi-ens qui as-si-du-us! 

The clan goes marching on ! 

(Tune: Annie Laurie) 
Christopher, Dave and Sir Andrew 

Were fathers of our clan; 
Andrew was the King's Scotch Chaplain; 

Nathan was a minute man; 
David was a Governor; 

Many Mitchells died at sea; 
Stephen was U. S. Chief Justice; 

Mitchells — they were proud to be! 

{Tune: Dixie) 
When you're with the Southern Mitchells meeting 
You'll enjoy a happy greeting. 

You will stay, every day, all the way, in Dixie Land. 
Dixie Mitchell wives are good at cooking, 
Mitchell girls are sure good-looking. 
Yes, I know it is so; let us go, to Dixie Land. 
Yes, the Mitchells of Old Dixie 
Are true, and do 

Extend their hands to Mitchell kin 
To welcome and their hearts win. 
Oh yes, God bless 
Our kinsmen of dear Dixie; 
Welcome, Mitchell, 
Our cousins of Old Dixie. 

{Tune: Auld Lang Syne) 
There are a "million" Mitchells in 

This world — and maybe more — 
But we believe we all are kin 

As Mitchells were of yore. 

So let each Mitchell neighbor be 

Your "cousin" and your friend. 
Your hand of hospitality 

Should to them all extend.

(A) INTRODUCTION 

The Mitchell Family is among the forty-nine "best families" selected by 
the American Historical-Genealogical Society for whom the Society has pub- 
lished family histories during the past few years. 

The Mitchell Family has been prominent in the British Empire and in the 
United States, its members having played important roles in war and in peace. 
Family pride is a commendable trait and should be cultivated. All Mitchells 
have just cause to be proud of their family history and traditions. 

In references No. 7 and No. 14 we find the following regarding the origin 
and meaning of the name Mitchell : 

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," which 
means "one who is like God." 

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 identical with the 
feminine form of the name Michael, which was bestowed upon the younger 
daughter of Saul. 

On very ancient records we find the name spelled "Micahel," "Michel," 
"Mikael," "Michilson" and "Michell." 

Geoflfrj' 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 and sixty works 
containing Mitchell genealogy. There were fifty-seven Mitchell families in 
Connecticut in 1790 and some twenty persons of the name had served in the 
United States Congress before 1916. 

The data in this volume is gathered from reliable sources. We have 
selected what we consider the most important material. Many of the daughters, 
and sons for whom no issue was shown, have been omitted from the pedigrees. 
A missing symbol indicates that a name has been omitted. Those desiring 
further information are advised to consult the volumes mentioned in the list of 
References. 

The compiler hopes that, in producing this volume, he is bringing to the 
Mitchell Family information which will be of interest and value to them, and 
that he is rendering an important service to the public. He and his associates 
will be glad to give their co-operation to members of the family who are inter- 
ested in having a complete genealogy of the family published. 

Unless otherwise plainly shown, the persons in this volume whose names 
are accompanied by three figures are children of the immediately preceding per- 
sons bearing immediately preceding numbers. All persons in each group bear- 
ing the same letter as a part of their numbers are directly related. The gen- 
erations of the descendants of those bearing numbers of three figures are 
represented as follows. However, some of our material is published as copied 
from various records without rearrangement according to this system.

(B) THE MITCHELL COAT OF ARMS 

A Coat of Arms is an emblem or a device which is displayed by titled per- 
sons, persons of royal blood, and their descendants. Coats of Arms were origi- 
nally used for purposes of identification and recognition on the field of battle as 
well as in civil life. 

It is claimed by some writers that Coats of Arms, in a crude form, were 
used by Noah's sons after the flood. There are records of other Coats of Arms, 
in one crude form or another, at different periods of ancient history. Heraldry, 
however, as we know it today, did not become of much importance until soon 
after the invasion of England by William the Conqueror, A. D. 1066. Heraldry 
became of general interest at about the time of the Crusades. 

The Mitchell Coat of Arms shown in the front of this volume is the Arms 
of the Mitchells of Scotland. Several other great Mitchell families use Coats 
of Arms very similar to it. Numerous branches of the Mitchell family have 
Coats of Arms resembling it. 

This is the most widely used of all Mitchell Coats of Arms. It is described 
in Betham's BARONETAGE, BURKE'S GENERAL ARMORY, BURKE'S 
LANDED GENTRY, BURKE'S PEERAGE AND BARONETAGE and 
other reliable works on heraldry, in some cases accompanied by illustrations. It 
has been used for generations by many American branches of the Mitchell 
family.

Sir Bernard Burke, of Heralds College, London, said: "Heraldry is prized 
by all who can show honorable ancestry or wish to found honorable families." 

Besides its family significance this Coat of Arms makes an excellent mural 
decoration and inspires the admiration and comment of all who see it. 

It is quite appropriate that members of the Mitchell family who have a 
pride in their ancestry should display the family Coat of Arms, in proper colors.

(L) MITCHELL CENSUS OF THE UNITED STATES 



The compiler of these records has made up a list from city and telephone 
directories of the United States, and from other sources, as follows. Care was 
taken to eliminate, wherever possible, persons known or believed to be colored, 
or of nationalities other than British and American:

Total 13,736 



To secure an estimate of the "Mitchell population" of the United States, 
we figure as follows : 

(a) 

multiply 

by 

Only about half the names were taken from each directory con- 
sulted 2 

Half of the Mitchells reside in the rural districts or in small towns 
having no printed directories which were available to us 2 

There is an average of more than four persons in each Ameri- 
can tamily 4 

Since Mitchell daughters marry and have as many descendants as 
the Mitchell sons, there are as many descendants of "other names" as 
there are bearing the name Mitchell ( though it is much easier to locate 
the latter) 2 

By multiplying each figure of column (a) into the preceding 
figure, we have a total of 32 

Conser\'ative estimate of the Mitchell population of the United 
States, one-half of whom bear the name Mitchell and one-half of 
whom bear other names 439,552 

The estimated Mitchell population of any of the states may be obtained by 
multiplying the figures shown by 32. There are Mitchells in every state of the 
Union. The Mitchell population of the British Empire is probably equal to that 
in the United States.

(M) RELIGIONS OF THE MITCHELLS 

For several centuries the Mitchells lived in Scotland, North Ireland, England 
and Wales. Most of the British (with the exception of those living in South 
Ireland) and, likewise, the Mitchells were and are of the Protestant faith. 

There are a few Mitchells of the Catholic faith in the British Isles, but it 
is estimated that their number does not exceed ten per cent, of the entire Mitchell 
population. 

The Mitchells who came from the British Isles to America continued in 
the faith of their fathers, for the most part, though their descendants in this 
country today will be found in the memberships of practically all the various 
churches. It is estimated that of all the Mitchells in America who are church 
members, at least eighty-five per cent, are of the Protestant faith. 

Biographical sketches of 41 Mitchells appear in WHO'S WHO IN 
AMERICA. Their religious faiths are shown as follows: BAPTIST, 2; CON- 
GREGATIONALIST, 2; EPISCOPAL, 3: METHODIST. 1; METHOD- 
IST EPISCOPAL, 2: PRESBYTERIAN. 5; ROMAN CATHOLIC, 2; 
UNITARIAN, 1 ; other PROTESTANTS, 2; religion not stated, 21.
