Mitchell baronets

There have been two Baronetcies created for persons with the surname Mitchell, one in the Baronetage of Great Britain and one in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom.


The Mitchell Baronetcy, of West Shore in Zetland, was created in the Baronetage of Great Britain on 19 June 1724 for John Mitchell. The title was generally thought to have become extinct or dormant on the death of the third Baronet in 1783. However, in 1895 James William Mitchell was served heir male by the Scottish Sheriff of Chancery and is considered by some sources as the 9th Baronet. He was a descendant of the seventh and youngest son of the first Baronet but never assumed the title and neither did his son Hugh Sykes Mitchell. The present status of the baronetcy is uncertain.

The Mitchell Baronetcy, of Tulliallan in the County of Fife and of Luscar in the Province of Alberta in the Dominion of Canada, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 6 September 1945 for the Conservative politician Harold Mitchell. He was the son of the Scottish businessman Alexander Mitchell and the great-grandson of William Mitchell, founder of the Alloa Coal Company. The title became extinct on Mitchell's death in 1983. The Barons Selsdon are also descended from William Mitchell.
