Mitchell Family Tree

The Mitchells

cyril ricketts and florence mitchellThe Mitchell’s are connected to the Ricketts lineage through my paternal grandparents. Much like the Ricketts’ the Mitchell family was well established in the west country of England working the farms. Working in and around the agricultural labour scene they would also have been well aware of the ground swell of the newly forming labour movement. It was in the small villages and countryside around Wool and Briantspuddle that the Tolpuddle Martyrs were to rebel against the wealthy land owners and stir the beginnings of the labour movement. This is the story of our branch of the Ricketts Family Tree.

Note: This tree represents just a portion of our research. It is far from complete and most likely contain inaccuracies. Most facts have been sourced from multiple places but in order to keep these trees clean and clear, I do not add sources here. I do, however, reference sources within individual story posts either through web links or at the end of the article. If you are pursuing your own research in these families, that’s great. By all means, build on what we have done, but don’t accidentally copy our errors into your research. Don’t blindly copy what we have done here and add it to your research/ancestry.com etc. without performing your own fact checking (then let us know where I went wrong!).
