1841/51/61 Census - Woolwich area MITCHELL please
« on: Monday 20 September 04 04:57 BST (UK) »
Hi,

I am interested in a Caroline MITCHELL born 1840 or 41.  Her parents may have been in service.  She did have siblings but cannot tell you more.  All the information that I have is here.

Could SKS please lookup the census to see if she is listed.

Sailed from London on “Golden South” arriving Melbourne, Victoria 13th June 1863 then sailed by “Black Swan” to Launceston, Tasmania and was coached to Hobart, Tasmania, Australia.

Free arrival:
Single, 22 years old, Protestant, Read and write, General servant, Native place:  Woolwich, Sent out on application of Mary G. Dean

Came out with Anne Kiley or Kily.  Anne was in her 30’s and was born in County Cork, Ireland.


From the Victorian Immigration records:

There is a surname-only index to Woolwich 1841 at the "Greenwich Heritage Centre". If you ask nicely they may be able to give you the refs for the Mitchell Surname.

1851 is name(& age) indexed. It's on fiche; so takes a while until I get to a reader. See www.nwkfhs.org who produced the index (and have a helpful little map too).

1861 is not indexed for that area, except by address, and comes under the London Census.

It's looking a bit odd. I can't find a Caroline Mitchell age about 10 in 1851 Woolwich. I also have Deptford, so I looked there and found a
Caroline MICHIELLS age 10 B Deptford with her widowed? Grandmother Caroline Colebrook age 55 b Deptford .
Address was no 2 Collier Street (Deptford St Nicholas)
Ho 107/1585/ fol 51a.

Hi Casalguidi and others,

I'm still very interested.  The last post is very interesting.  I would be interested in where they were born by looking at the 1851 and 1861 Census entries.  The names of the children are similar to the ones in Tasmania as well.  That seems a good guide.

Caroline has an entry in www.familysearch.org as well:

CAROLINE MICHELL   
   
25 DEC 1839     St Alphage, Greenwich, Kent, England
      
Father:    CHRISTOPHER MICHELL   
Mother:    CAROLINE

I wonder if other researchers are researching.
