MacLysaght 'The Surnames of Ireland'
MITCHELL This well-known English name is long established and very numerous
in all the provinces except Munster [the southern counties like Cork]. In
Connacht it is often a synonym of Mulvihil.
The name comes from the French version of Michael, ie. Michel, and was most
likely brought to Scotland by the Normans.
Perhaps it was originally Norman then English, Scottish, Irish. Try the
