Mitchell, William (1786–1837)

At his residence, Brisbane Meadows Argyle, on the 19th ultimo, William Mitchell Esq., in his 52nd year. Mr. Mitchell (the son of a most respectable family in Kent) was an emigrant of 27 years standing. His bereaved widow and numerous sons and daughters will not alone lament the loss of the affectionate husband and tender parent–Many who knew him best must long regret the benevolent man, the conscientious master, the intellectual companion, and the generous friend. His remains were followed to their resting place in the burial ground at Inverary, by a large assemblage of the chief landed proprietors, with their dependents, and other respectable inhabitants in the vicinities of Goulburn and Bungonia.
