John Mitchell the younger

No Dates

Claimant or beneficiary


Trustee in all four of his awards in the compensation process of the 1830s, some with Rowland Mitchell. He appears however to have had no identifiable mercantile connection with the family business. Presumably distinct from John Mitchell (q.v.), the MP and brother of Rowland and Samuel Mitchell (each of whom q.v.). John Mitchell jun. appears as a director of the Van Diemens Land Company in 1833. Possibly the nephew John (son of his brother John Mitchell) noted by William 'King' Mitchell as being on his estate called New Hall in Jamaica when William 'King' Mitchell made his will in 1819.

  1. Conceivably the son of Rowland Mitchell (q.v.), but this son would have been very young to have been commercially active in the early 1830s. John Mitchell, son of Rowland Mitchell and Ann Heath, was baptised St Marylebone 10/05/1813.

  2. John Mitchell jun. Esq. appears briefly in the London street directories, at 2 i or 2 I Albany in 1829, but not discernibly thereafter.
