Pow of Atty named in*9 July 1651He was named in a power of attorney on 9 July 1651 at Northampton Co, VA. On 22 Apr 1656 Ursula Browne of Accowmacke in Virginia, widow & Extr of her late dec'd husband Mr. Jno. Browne, made a power of attorney to her well beloved friend Capt. Peter Wraxall of Bristol to recover money due her husband's estate from Mr. Lawrence Coughen of Amsterdam in Holland. Recorded with the power of attorney was a letter dated 9 July 1651 to Mr. Jno. Browne from Lawrence Coughen stating that "You are to receive of Capt. Mitchell: (if he will stand to his bargain which I question not) £308-18-6 he being to pay you 12d sterling for every 10 stinres(?) Holland money by agreement between you. The 924 guilders, 11 stinres (?) 8S which you me, I have put down to Capt. Mitchell's account & made him debtor for it (as by his & your order). I desire to hear from you with what speed you can; there is a ship going from Rotterdam towards Virginia; with the first easterly wind I suppose she runs more than ordinary danger I have not else but rest."7 
Land patented*20 October 1651He patented land on 20 October 1651 at tract Rich Neck, Talbot Co, MD. This tract was surveyed for Capt. William Mitchell, October 20, 1651, by Robert Clark, then Surveyor General of the Province, and contained 1,000 acres. Captain Mitchell sold the tract to Phillip Land, the High Sheriff of St. Marys County. In 1684 Mr. Land sold it to Capt. James Murphy, the consideration being 104 pounds sterling, "lawful money of England. 23,000 pounds of good tobacco and two tracts on Sassafras Creek- one tract of 1.000 acres and the other of 500 acres, both lying in Cecil County. Of all the colonial manors of Maryland few maintained a position of greater prominence and importance during the days of the Colony thanThe Rich Neck. This tract of land is a peninsula lying between the eastern branch of the Chesapeake Bay and St. Michael's River with Tilghman's Creek making in from St. Michael's River on the south, and furnishes one of the finest land-locked harbors on the bay. From the character of the soil of this peninsula it well deserves its name, as there are few tracts in this State which today can boast of soil more fertile. Across St. Michael's River to the east and at the mouth of the Wye River was Doncaster, the earliest county-seat of Talbot. In full view from The Rich Neck to the west across Eastern Bay is the site of the first seat of government for the Isle of Kent, and still farther beyond that, across the Chesapeake, is Annapolis, which became the capital of the Colony in 1692.8 
Anecdote1652 In 1652 Captain William Mitchell, one of the worst men in the Province, was appointed a member of the Council, by Lord Baltimore. He was suspected of poisoning his wife on the voyage to America. Ann, daughter of Elizabeth Bolton, of St. Martins in the Fields, Middlesex, was hired as a servant, to act as governess, whom he harshly used, and then sold to Francis Brooke, for a wife. At a court held on 22 Jun 1652 at Saint Mary's, Thomas Cole, aged 32 years, deposed: "That before coming out of England he was at Mr. Edmond Plowden's chamber. He asked me with whom I lived? I replied Capt. Mitchell. He persuading me not to go with him to Virginia, asked me "Of what religion he was, and whether I ever saw him go to church?" I made answer "I never saw him go to church." He replied, "that Captain Mitchell being among a company of gentlemen, he wondered, that the world had been, so many hundred years, deluded with a man and a pigeon." Mr. Plowden then told Cole, that by the dove, was meant "the Holy Ghost," and by the man, "our Savior, Christ."9 
Anecdote*1652 Captain William Mitchell, a member of the governor's council, was accused of adultery. It was because Cecil Calvert, proprietor of Maryland, had confidence in Mitchell's "honour, worth and good abilities" that he had appointed him a member of the council. Yet within a year after he had come to Maryland the captain was in disgrace. Sometime before he arrived in the colony Mitchell stayed in London on the Strand, "near the Savoy." While there, Mitchell, who was a married man, visited William Smith and succeeded in persuading him to allow his daughter, Susan, to go with him to Maryland. This girl, it appears, was the wife of Humphrey Warren. The status in which Susan accompanied Mitchell to the New World is not clear and was the subject of dispute. Mitchell claimed that in consideration of the one hundred pounds sterling which he had loaned Mrs. Warren, she had promised to act as his servant until this loan was repaid. Mrs. Warren, on the other hand, contended that she not only had paid the cost of her own passage, but that Mitchell had by "harsh and cruel usage" compelled her to give him a bond for one hundred pounds sterling, although she was not indebted to him. Susan told how Mitchell had said that unless she signed the bond he would make her fetch water for him and even clean "his foot boy's shoes." Apparently Captain Mitchell had even boasted to others about the deception which he had worked on Mrs. Warren. After Captain Mitchell and Mrs. Warren arrived in Maryland, they lived together at a place called "The White House." Martha Webb, a servant in this house, who was later called upon to testify, spoke of finding Mrs. Warren and Captain Mitchell in bed together. Not long after this Susan was found to be with child. At first she denied having had intercourse with Mitchell and said that if she was pregnant "it was inspired by the Holy Ghost, and not by man." Later, however, Mrs. Warren admitted that Captain Mitchell was the father of her child. The captain, having decided that something must be done to get rid of the baby, had a concoction made consisting of a very strong physic mixed with eggs which he forced Susan to drink. Soon after this was administered, Mrs. Warren became very ill. She was compelled to spend much of her time upon a closet stool "purging very strongly." (page 176 is missing from the Google online book). Lord Baltimore compelled Captain Mitchell to resign as a member of the governor's council in Maryland and forbade him thereafter to hold any public office in Maryland.10

Anecdotecirca 1657 This is a summary of William Mitchell's life from A Biographical Dictionary of the Maryland Legislature by Papenfuse and others - William Mitchell was born in Chichester, Sussex, England.

He was shown as Esquire on arrival, but had a very unsavory record in Maryland as he prosecuted for atheism, adultery, murder and abortion. He was an attorney in 1657 but charged as unqualified under 3rd James, Chapter 7.

Anecdote Sherrie Mitchell Boone reports that her brother, John Bruce Mitchell's YDNA test shows a connection to a Scott Mitchell within 12 generations rated at 97.38% and within 8 generations at 88.79%. The YDNA results, combined with Sherrie's paper based research on both lines, indicate that John Bruce Mitchell III is in the 11th generation of descent by a continuous male line from Thomas Mitchell (1621-1700) and Scott Mitchell is in the 10th generation of descent by a continuous male line from William Mitchell (1634-1685/6). This implies that William Mitchell (1634-1685/6) is a nephew of Thomas Mitchell (1621-1700). However, as a result of the research Bob Atteberry of Carmichael, CA, provided in Feb 2017, it is now apparent that Capt. William Mitchell (1615-1658/9) is not the father of William Mitchell (1634-1685/6) and not a brother of Thomas Mitchell (1621-1700).56

Anecdote* Robert Jones being the brother-in-law of Christopher Nutter II would explain why he was given power of attorney (attorney-in-fact) for John Nutter of Sussex County, Pennsylvania, in 1720 to settle the lands upon the heirs named in Christopher Nutter I will. Christopher Nutter II was the sole remaining executor of his father's will after his brother, Matthew, died in 1718. For legal reasons, he may have selected a trusted family member who was not in line as an heir to help him complete the land transactions necessary to finalized the settlement of his father's estate.6
