Hello Ihave hit a brick wall on the ancestry of my great grandfather, Alfred Chanter Mitchell. He lived in Loch Valley, in the Noojee/Neerim area north of Warragul. On his marriage certificate to Elizabeth Devitt it states that he was born in Landsborough Victoria to parents Richard John Mitchell and Margaret Spencer. I have been unable to find a birth certificate for him or any record of a Richard John Mitchell married to a Margaret. Alfred was born in the 1880s sometime. It is v ery frustrating as I have been able to find all the other branches of my family to 6 or 7 generations but this has stumped me. Any possible help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

April 1930

Alfred Chantel Mitchell, aged 33
years, of Noojee, was then charged
with stealing three sheep, the pro
perty of Percy George Green, be
tween February 13th and March 13th,
at N?ooje. The accused pleaded
guilty.
Evidence was given by Constable
Brown, of Noojee, that le knew the
accused, who was a good worker but
was addicted to drink. Mitchell had
a wife and family of seven children,
all under 12 years of age.
His· Honor, addressing Mitchell,
said that he had committed a very
serious offence. It was regarded as
a particularly serious one, because it
was so difficult of detection. In the
statement which lMitchell had writ
ten to the Court, he had admitted
that drink was the cause of his ac
tion. In view of the accused's
previous good character, he would
sentence Mitchell to 18 months im
prisonment, with hard labor, but
would suspend the sentence upon the
accused undertaking to abstain from
intoxicating drink for a period of
three years. He would remain un
der a bond of £10 to observe this
stipulation.
