Origin of the Name Mitchell

The ancient history of the name Mitchell was found in the archives. Meaning 'son of Michael', variants of the name Mitchell include Mitchelson and Mitchel. This name is taken from the Hebrew name Michael through the softened French form Michel. This name is of Anglo-Norman descent spreading to Ireland , Scotland and Wales in early times and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts in the above countries. Examples of such are a Hugh Micahel, of Lincoln, who was recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls', England , in the year 1273. A John Mitchell had a remission granted him in 1489 for his part in holding Dumbarton Castle, Scotland , against the King. In Ireland Mitchell has been long established having been introduced by the Normans centuries ago, and taken from the Irish O'Maoilmhicil, the ancestor so called for his devotion to Saint Michael.
The Mitchell coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Mitchell descendants.
