No relation. I first looked to the census substitutes for Ireland. Griffiths Valuation 1853. The Tithe's were done in 1824 but know of no complete records.
I found 227 Griffith Records for Mitchell, however, for some odd reason a bmd data base included the name MOORE in their reporting methods.
There were commonalities between Mitchell's, Orford, and as expected Ryan's and Byrne.
I found no David Mitchell except for 1870 nothing earlier, doesn't mean there wasn't any.
The most common Parish they had in common was Kildrought Parish, Celbridge Townland, and Parish of Rathangan, but not a common Townland. The Parish church is where most people probably met unless they were Townies.
You can find the Griffiths at www.failteromhat.com
I just going to give a few eg.
1846 John Mitchell was listed as a Miller, Leixlip Kildare

house&garden 0Acres0Roods0perches (old english measurement)

A bmd database for Kildare, shows Patrick's born with a father named James: 1829, 1846, 1851, 1865
James Mitchell born 1796 and 1814, Anne Byrne's born 1795, 1805, 1806, 1811. Marriages of Anne Byrne 1829 and James 1829.
Ally Michel born 1830, 1 Mary Michel 1830, 1 Mary Mitchell born 1831 These could be the same Mary's, transcription error or one birth and then one baptism which might be two separate dates, generally a baptism took place the first Sunday after birth depending on circumstances. The website of this source cannot be put on rootsweb message board but I can give them to you in an e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
