According to http://www.houseofnames.com/mitchell-family-crest

"The Mitchell family originally lived in the town of Mitcham in the country of Surrey, England before moving north to Scotland, and taking this name with them. In Scotland, as hereditary surnames were adopted during the late Middle Ages, names derived from localities and became increasingly widespread. Local names sometimes denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. Alternatively the name name was derived from the personal name Michael, meaning "who is like God" and influenced by the Norman French to Michel and later to Mitchell. The Gaelic form of the name was MacgilleMichael."

Motto Translation: By God's favour I conquer

According to http://www.kilts.co.nz/mitclan.htm

Usually acknowledged as a sept of Clan Innes. The "t" was introduced into the spelling to signify the "ch" was a hard sound "tch" rather than the soft "sh" sound as used in the French pronunciation (after a short "i" vowel sound as in the word "it"). In the English use of the name Michael, the "ch" is vocalized as a "k" sound following a long "i" vowel sound. The surname Michael may also have "ch" pronounced as in loch.

Surname variations are; MacMichael, MacMichell, Mechel, Meitchel, Michell, Michill, Michie, Michison, Mitchal, Mitchell, Mitchel, Mitchelson, Mitchellson, Mitchison, Mitchol, Mitschael, Mitsschal, Mittchel, Mychell, Mytchell. There is also a Norwegian spelling, Mitzel from Scots immigrants to Norway. Derivatives of the name are not all associated with Clan Innes or Clan MacDonald of Keppoch.
