  General Notes:

Possible son of William and Jane although no record of birth or baptism and not born in Hampshire according to 1841 census. Did they move elsewhere for a while between 1792 and 1799?

There is a John William Mitchell born to a William and Jane in Southwark in 1796 but a likely sibling from 1790 rules him out
