He worked for a Mr James Cox living in Dallington Street and he was a farmer of 40 acre’s. I would appreciate any information. Regards Susan”

Reply from Roy Iremonger December 2011: “Mitchell Family Dear Susan,
Taking a quick look through the census returns I have spotted some of your family.
John Mitchell ,b.1806 married to Sarah. Son, George b.1836.
1861 census show George married to  Mary and living at Newcastle Farm and their son, George being born in 1857. George and Mary remained in Dallington until their deaths and are now buried in St Giles Extension Church Yard (plot 47).The last entry for their son,George is in 1871 when he is living at “Forsters” aged 14 and is described as an “Ag Lab”.Sorry about the delay in replying. Regards,Roy”
