About James Mitchell

DETAIL OF DESCENT FROM PROPRIETORS AND SETTLERS.

MITCHELL FAMILY.

RICHARD MITCHELL, the first of the name of whom we have any record, lived at Bricktown, Isle of Wight, and married Mary Wood.

His son Richard, born in 1686, came to Rhode Island in 1708 and married Elizabeth Tripp ; he died in 1722.

One of his descendants says of him, "The firmness with which Richard Mitchell adhered to the religious faith he early adopted, the honesty and integrity that were maintained in all his transactions, the tender, thoughtful care for the welfare of his wife and young family, are striking traits which are inherited by many of his descendants.

     ". . .He was blessed with a good understanding and sound judgment, and was capable of assisting and advising in matters of difficulty."

Richard, of the next generation, married Mary Starbuck. Peleg Mitchell, Sr., married Lydia Cartwright.
