    Notes 
    • In 1714 they settled on a farm in the northwestern corner of Bristol Township, fronting on the Neshaminy, between the present villages of Hulmeville and Newportville. (Ibid., Folio 1) (see map)
      Deeds on record at Doylestown, PA:
      Joseph Growden Esq. to Henry Mitchell of Bristol Twp., Carpenter, for 125 acres in Bristol Twp., part of a tract of 135 acres conveyed to said Growdon by John Jones, "beginning at a corner of John Towne's land; thence west thirteen degrees, south 408 perches, thence 24 perches distant from Neshaminy Creek, 62 perches, thence east 13 degrees north 360 perches, thence south 15 degrees east 50 perches to place of beginning. Containing 125 acres. (25 Dec. 1714, Bk 7, p. 40) The strip 24 perches wide by 62 long was the 10 acres reserved by Growden and eventually conveyed to Henry Mitchell, Mason, the grandson of above Henry. (13 Nov. 1773, Bk. 28, p. 49) The other tract lying north of the above, and along the line of
      Middletown Twp., was conveyed to Henry Mitchell by Hannah Carpenter, widow and executrix of Samuel Carpenter. It contained 106 acres, extending along the Middletown line by two courses, 262 perches, to Newtown Road, down that to the other tract, along it to the Neshaminy and up that to the Middletown line and place of beginning. (Bk 7, p.
      42) The homestead seems to have been on the upper tract near the N.W. corner, not far from Neshaminy, and above the Fallsington Road. (Ibid., Folio 1)
      It was here that Henry and Sarah (Gove) Mitchell lived, raised their family, and where Henry died circa 1726/7. Letters of administration on his estate were granted to his brother, Richard; his widow, Sarah, having renounced. (It would appear that widow Sarah removed to Philadelphia after Henry's death, as her own will, although proved in Bucks Co., was dated in Philadelphia.)
      It seems the whole of both above tracts eventually were in the hands of Henry Mitchell, III, or his sons, Richard and Henry IV. (Bk, 7, p. 528 & 532; Bk. 29, p. 46)
      The will of Sarah Mitchell of "City of Philadelphia, Widow," dated 19 Aug. 1742 and proved 21 Sep. 1742, devises her wearing apparel to her daughters, Elizabeth Barber, Martha Janney, and Sarah Clark. Likewise her household goods and the residue of estate were to be divided equally to sons, John and Henry, and her daughters, Martha and
      Elizabeth. She appoints her son, John, and friend, John Bessonett, as Executors. (Bucks Co., Will Bk. 2, p. 17
