The family name is spelled Mihell in the marriage registry from 1851, Michell in the 1852 census, Mihill in the 1871 census, Mikell in the 1881 census, Mitchell in the 1891 census, and Migll in the 1901 census. Presumably there was a gutteral "h" in the middle of the name, and possibly by 1891 they had given up trying to get people to pronounce and spell the name correctly. The family is English so presumably the name is a dialect form of "mikkel", Middle English for "mighty".
