I need a look up for James Henry Michell and Elizabeth Jane Sarah.Married 5 Mar 1857. I can't seem to find them in the 1861 census and I was wondering if there are any burial records or records of them having children? THANKS xo
Just letting you know that thanks to this board we have found descendants of James Henry Mitchell and Elizabeth Jane Sarah They too came to Ballarat, Australia. Then James Henry followed some of his children to New Zealand. So only William Chellew, Edward and Samuel left to find. ;D
Just to let you know: James Henry Mitchell married Elizabeth Jane Sara. She was born 1834 Mylor baptised 26 November 1834. Parents William Sara and Grace Stiles. They married 3 Jan 1829 Mylor. I can find 3 children so far William jnr Sara bpt 14 Aug 1831, our Elizabeth Jane and William James Thomas Sara bpt 18 Feb 1840. He died aged 6 August 1845. William snr (occ waterman, boatman, bargeman and ferryman), died aged 59 Dec 1857. They lived in Flushing, Mylor. Grace Sarah is listed in the 1861 census as a laundress. She was born in Penryn.
Holy Cow Batman. ;D We have found William Chelew Mitchell!! Sadly he passed way in 1856 in Ballarat, Victoria, due to a mining accident. Leaving behind his wife Jane and two children. So all those pieces are confirmed.. Just need to keep digging now for Edward and Samuel. Probably also went to Australia. Cheers Jo

Hi there. Only just stumbled on this site / thread, but I suspect that I am a descendant of William Henry Mitchell (above). Was anyone able to confirm the surname of his mother?
I have William Henry Mitchell's marriage to Johanna McGrath in (Ballarat) 1865. His father is listed as William Mitchell and the mother Jane, but I have never been able to make out the surname... looks like 'Shearles', but the 'Sh' may in fact be a 'H' which would explain why I hit a dead end and lost interest in the search. I would never have read it to read 'Hurls', but then again I am a bit of a novice at this.
William and Johanna had 8 children, Mary, Thomas, William, George (my Great Grandfather), Annie, Edward, Francis and Charles.
