Alfred Mitchell (1832-1911) is the namesake of Mitchell College.
The Tiffanys were connected to the Mitchells when Annie Olivia Tiffany (1844-1937), granddaughter of Charles Lewis Tiffany (1812-1902), married Alfred. They had two daughters: Alfreda (1874-1967) and Charly (1877-1934). Annie Tiffany's inherited fortune was used to purchase the property on which Mitchell College now stands. It served as the family's summer residence beginning in 1880.
The Binghams were connected to the Mitchells when Alfreda Mitchell married Hiram Bingham III (1875-1956).
The Jeans were connected to the Mitchells when Charly Mitchell married Sir James "Fred" Jeans (1877-1946).
Captain Nathaniel Shaw (1703-1778) was Alfred Mitchell's great great grandfather. He was a wealthy ship-owner in New London during the time of the Revolutionary War whose stately property on Bank Street (Shaw Mansion) is now home to the New London Historical Society.
