Phillip and Maria Mitchell

From on Wed, 8 Nov 2006
I am not sure about which ship Phillip Mitchell arrived. I have been to Public Records Office of Victoria, and it looks like the Phillip on the "Star of the East" is him. He is listed separately from the other Mitchell's on the ship and his age and occupation are about right. His wife, Maria Ellen nee Penrose, arrived with their daughter, Mary, on the "Eastern City" in 1855. Phillip also had a brother, Richard, who emigrated to Australia with his wife and son in 1857 on the "Mary Ann".
The Star Of The East came Sep 1854 with Alex Mitchell 9, Margaret Mitchell 50, Wm Mitchell 50, Js Mitchell 41, James Mitchell 13, Philip Mitchell 22, Js Mitchell 24 (3 or 4 separate groups)
The Mary Ann came Jan 1857 with William Mitchell Infant, Richard Mitchell 21, David Mitchell 23, Elizabeth Mitchell 20 and Mary Mitchell 18
The Eastern City came Aug 1857 with Mary Mitchell, Jas Mitchell 18 and Ellen Mitchell 24
----------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Elizabeth
Philip Mitchell and Maria Ellen Penrose married June quarter 1853 Truro 5c 333. The information on Maria Ellen's listing only has 33 with one number missing as the original is a poor copy. Parents for Maria Ellen Penrose are Paul Penrose and Elizabeth Tredinnick, so you have the right family on the 1851 census.
The parents of Phillip Mitchell are William Mitchell and Mary Glasson.
In the 1851 Census they are listed in Folio 611 Page 29 number 100 at the Cornwall search page.

Phillip's wife Ellen Mitchell 24 and daughter Mary 3 wcame Aug 1857 on the Eastern City with James Mitchell. Maria Ellen was often called Ellen, even on their children's birth certificates she is listed as Ellen.
If you would like more information, as I have more ancestors and descendants of most of these people, please do not hesitate to ask.

From on Mon, 1 November, 2010
Hello Elizabeth ,
I am a descendant of Henry Davies Mitchell, he was my Great Grandfather. After Sampson died in a mining accident in 1860’s young Henry was sent to a property named “Lilicur” near Avoca in Victoria and was brought up by Thomas Treblecock. Henry had a son Thomas (my grandfather), he had 6 children one of which is my father Alan (now 80 years old). He and his siblings are all still alive.
Kind Regards, Greg.
Hi,
Thomas Treblecock was quite a puzzle, till I found a reference suggesting his surname may also be spelled Trebilcock
and then I found a marriage - Thomas Trebilcock wed 1854 #1805 to Susan Prideaux in Victoria
and remembered Sampson Mitchell wed on 7 Feb 1849 to Catharine Prideaux in Adelaide.
Back to South Australian immigration and found Richard Prideaux, Catherine nee Sims, Edwin, Cath, (Richard), Sarah, Eliza, Susan arrived 23 Jan 1847 on the David Malcolm from London and Plymouth.
It very much looks as if the girls are sisters.
Di Cummings Web page has Thomas Trebilcock 20 Labourer of Cornwall arrived 11 June 1850 on Fatima from London 17 Jan 1850 and Plymouth 13 Feb 1850
So Greg, your Henry went to live with his mother's sister, his Aunty Susan and Uncle Tom, who appear to have had no children.
From on Thursday, 27 October, 2011
Regarding Thomas Trebilcock he did not come to Australia on the Fatima in 1850 but the ship Statesman under Captain Trivett arrived in Melbourne Friday 24th Nov 1854.
The newspaper report regarding the fatal gunshot refers to the son of Richard and Grace Trebilcock, which is in the bdm index.

From Elizabeth - Thankyou. See my page Trebilcock for more notes on various members of this family


5. John Aver Mitchell c1860
From on Sunday, 13 September, 2009
I am pleased to have located your site. I am urgently trying to locate a direct decsendant of John Aver Mitchell, founder of Terowie South Australia.
John Aver Mitchell was the fifth child of Sampson & Mary Ann Mitchell [nee Aver] who came to Australia on La Belle Alliance on 4th April 1847
I have just completed a book 'Terowie Institute 130 Years' A Social History. The book is being launched at Terowie on Saturday 26th Septemebr [in two weeks] by Peter Goers, an A B C radio personality in Adelaide. The book is a tribute to JAM in a sense, for the good reason that he gave the land upon which the Institute was built. And gave much of himself in founding the town. He died a very young man at the age of 46 years.
Thank you, Marina Gray
