The Mitchell Family in Cornwall

This page lists those members of the Mitchell family whose origins we are researching. Entries in italics are inferred or uncertain, or have been supplied by other researchers and not personally verified by us. The list does not include children known to have died in infancy. Please contact Chris and Linda Warren if you feel that the family listed here is connected with your own research.

The Mitchell family lived in the parish of Perranzabuloe, north-west of Truro. It was a large parish, including the town of Perranporth and many small mining and farming communities. We have traced our line back to John Mitchell who married Mary Kernick in 1733, but we are uncertain of all the family relationships, especially in the earlier generations. It has often been difficult to distinguish between different people with the same name. The family surname was also spelt Michel, Michell or Mitchel.

Some of the names below are linked to a more detailed record in the on-line family tree (people marked with an asterisk do not have a full record). When you click on a link, the linked record will be displayed in a separate window. There you can see the family relationships as we understand them, together with notes on what we have found in parish registers, census returns and other records. All the places named below are in Cornwall unless otherwise indicated.
