George Gray MITCHELL

Journal by lmsvic

George Gray MITCHELL was my Great Great Grandfather. He was the father of my maternal Great Grandmother Gertrude Lilly MITCHELL. Any information on George would be much appreciated. The family seemed to move around alot as the children were all born in different country towns in Victoria.

Groom: George Gray MITCHELL.
Bride: Mary Ann TEAY.
Year married: 1861.
Place: Victoria.
Ref: Registry of Marriages, Victoria. Reg #4142.

TEAY appears to be a misspelling and should be TIGHY.

Died: 1881 Melbourne South, Victoria.
Age: 39 years.
Father: John TIGHY.
Mother: Eliza SMITH.
Ref: Registry of Deaths, Victoria. Reg #5233.

Is this the death of Gertrude's mother?

If so where did George take his family after Mary's death.
Two of their children, Sarah Jane (1862-1935) and Charles George (1867-1934), died in Victoria, but I have not located their other three children, Elizabeth Ellen (1869), Florence (1871) and Gertrude Lilly (1875).

Yes this was the death of Gertrude's mother (Gertrude was sometimes known as Lilly). I'm not sure where George went after Mary's death, but he did marry again I think. I have details of Gertrude Lilly (my g.grandmother) but don't know much about the other family members.

Unable to locate any further details on your George Gray MITCHELL in the Australian records after Mary's death in 1881.

If you included a few more details for Gertrude's marriage and death it may assist with further record searches to locate George.

Disregard further details for Gertrude's marriage and death.
Here are Gertrude's birth, marriage and death details.


Name: Gertrude Liley MITCHELL.
Born: 1875 Williamstown, Victoria.
Father: George Gray MITCHELL.
Mother: Mary Ann TIGHY.
Ref: Registry of Births, Victoria. Reg #20314.


Groom: James ATKINSON.
Birth place: Given as Port Melbourne.

Bride: Lily MITCHELL.
Birth place: Given as Williamstown.

Year married: 1894.
Place: Victoria.
Ref: Registry of Marriages, Victoria. Reg #2853.


Name: Lily ATKINSON.
Died: 1958 Coburg, Victoria.
Age: 83 years.
Father: Charles MITCHELL.
Mother: Mary Anne TYE.
Ref: Registry of Deaths, Victoria. Reg #6984.

Gertrude never used her birth name of Gertrude and it took time to find her marriage and death. Informant for her death named her father as Charles MITCHELL. Her mother Mary was also recorded as TYE in a few other death records for her children.

I have searched all the MITCHELL death records but unable to find your George Gray MITCHELL and expect his death was simply recorded as George MITCHELL. Will keep looking.
