     Dominic Murrell was born on 6 October 1827 at Slindon, Sussex, England. He was the son of Philip Murrell and Maria Mason.
Dominic Murrell was baptized on 8 October 1827 at Slindon, Sussex, England.
Dominic Murrell was a servant of a Catholic clergyman, Joseph Silviera on 7 June 1841 at Slindon, Sussex, England.1
"The Rev. Joseph Maria Silveira was born England 30 Mar 1794 son of Albert Garcia da Silviera of Lisbon, Spain. He was admitted to the English College at Lisbon on 8 Jul 1815. Left Lisbon in 1817 due to ill health and was admitted to Old Hall College. Ordained priest 6 Aug 1822. Between 1827 and 1829 he served at Gosport, Hampshire, 1829 to 1845 at Slindon, Sussex. In 1845 he retired from missionary work and served Havant, Hampshire 1849/56. His successor at Slindon was John Sheehan, another priest from the college at Lisbon. He served at Slindon 1845 to 1869." from: "Catholic Record Society, Miscellanea, Vol VI, Bedingfeld Papers, etc, published 1909", LDS Microfilm No. 1068700. The Catholic priest Silviera served first at Gosport, Hampshire then Slindon, Sussex then at Havant, Hampshire.
Dominic Murrell was a groom on 30 March 1851 at North Street, Havant, Hampshire, England.2
It would appear that Dominic followed the Catholic priest Silviera to Havant in Hampshire, and sometime between 1851 and 1855 moved to Cambridgeshire where he married and later worked as a gardener, his father's occupation. Did he meet his Cambridgeshire born wife, Elizabeth Everett, in Havant?
Dominic Murrell married Elizabeth Everett, daughter of William Everett and Dinah Brand, on 3 May 1855 at Histon, Chesterton, Cambridgeshire, England.
On 2 April 1871 Dominic Murrell and Elizabeth Everett lived at The Mereway, Impington, Cambridgeshire, England.3

John Mitchell

b. 24 July 1768
FatherThomas Mitchell b. c 1741, d. 1816
MotherElizabeth Cottingham b. 12 Mar 1741/42, d. 1834
     John Mitchell was born in 1768 at Ditchling, Sussex, England.
John Mitchell was baptized on 24 July 1768 at Ditchling, Sussex, England.1 He was the son of Thomas Mitchell and Elizabeth Cottingham.
All we know about John Mitchell at this stage is that he married in 1795 at Ditchling and then lived first at Fletching until 1805 and then Chailey until 1814 when his wife Mary died at 41 years of age. The family's stay at Chailey seems to have been temporary as there are no family burials there apart from Mary's. John Mitchell then disappears and his burial has not been found. The 1768 baptism has been used here so that the family of the parents, Thomas and Elizabeth Mitchell, can be explored in more detail to see if there are any further clues. So please note that it has not been proved that the parents are Thomas and Elizabeth and this is a work in progress. In fact, the evidence is not convincing at this stage so don't assume these are the correct parents.
Possible baptisms are (incomplete list):
14 Aug 1757 at Lindfield, son of Henry MITCHEL and Elizabeth
30 Aug 1761 at Edburton, son of Thomas MICHELL and Anne
30 Jan 1763 at Glynde, base born son of Catherine MITCHELL and Thomas WALLIS
1 May 1763 at Fletching, son of John and John MITCHELL and Elizabeth
4 Dec 1765 at Rotherfield, son of William MITCHELL and Deborah
6 Dec 1767 at Steyning, son of Thomas MICHELL and Sarah
24 Jul 1768 at Ditchling, son of Thomas MITCHEL and Elizabeth (looks promising!)
22 Mar 1772 at Steyning, son of John MITCHEL and Jane
24 Jan 1773 at Chailey, son of John MICHELL and Philadelphia
22 May 1774 at Lindfield, son of William MITCHEL and Hannah
26 Feb 1775 at Ditchling, son of William MICHEL and Ann
A Thomas Mitchell aged 89 years was buried at Chailey on 8 Aug 1834 ("workhouse"). Could this be John's father?
If the 1768 baptism is correct then the parents are Thomas MITCHELL and Elizabeth COTTINGHAM, married 29 Sep 1767 at Westmeston which is not far from Ditchling or Streat. It is possible that one of their children, Thomas, married Sarah BOTTING at Fletching in 1791 which is where our John Mitchell appears after his marriage. This Thomas's marriage states that he is of Chailey. Needs further work.1,2
