After his father's death when he was only 12, Frederick moved with his mother to 2 Carlton Terrace, Dartmouth. In accordance with his father's will, in which he also inherited fields and premises at "Ridges", he was given "a good boarding school consistent with [his father's] position in life for the term of three years". Between 1886 and 1896, he played rugby for Dartmouth and for Devon; and in 1888-1889 he rowed with the Dartmouth Amateur Rowing Club.

In 1891 he was a boarding clerk, but by 1895 was running the Dartmouth Arms Public House in Lower Street and living at The Island, Bayard's Cove. In 1900 he was still running the Dartmouth Arms but had also started a coal merchant business.

Later in 1900, Frederick went to South Africa to fight in the Boer War. He enlisted in the Natal Mounted Rifles and then the 27th Company, 7th Battalion Imperial Yeomanry. He judged to be "inefficient" in 1901 and was to be sent home; but this order was clearly rescinded, for he was wounded at Kalkfontein in 1902 and received the Queen's and the King's South Africa Medal with clasps. After the war ended, he returned to Dartmouth to continue running his coal merchant business on the North Embankment.

Frederick returned to Natal with his wife in 1906. His funeral at Stellawood Cemetery, Durban, in 1920 was attended by several members of the League of Comrades.

Frederick married Mabel Augusta Mary ATHERTON, on 27 Dec 1893 in Dartmouth St Petrox. Mabel, known in the family as Augusta, was born in Dartmouth in 1872 and died in Basingstoke in 1947.

Augusta ran the Dartmouth Arms Public House while Frederick was in South Africa. She went to South Africa with Frederick in 1906, but by 1911 had returned and was working as a housekeeper in a public house in Plymouth. In the 1940s, she lived in Basingstoke with her son George for a time but then moved up to Burton-on-Trent to live with her other son, Fred. After this, she went to Leicester and got a job as a housekeeper. Presumably she died at George's.

8.34 Augustus John MITCHELMORE ( Nathaniel , John (2) , John (3) , John (4) , John (5)Peter (1), Peter (2) ) was born on 6 Mar 1863 in Dartmouth and christened at St Saviour's Church, Dartmouth, on 3 May 1863. He died on 10 Mar 1929 at the Chilton Nursing Home, Plymouth, as a result of an enlarged prostate, nephritis and cardiac failure, and was buried in Ford Park Cemetery, Plymouth.

Augustus was recorded as a boat builder in 1881. After a few years in the merchant navy, he entered the Royal Navy in 1889 as a carpenter and rose steadily through the ranks, culminating in his appointment as shipwright lieutenant commander in 1926. In 1919, he was awarded the MBE for his services during World War I. A detailed account of his illustrious naval career has been kindly provided by Richard Taylor, Secretary of the Naval Historical Collectors and Research Association.

Possibly because he was away from Dartmouth and already established in the Royal Navy, the inheritance Augustus received on his father's death  in 1897 consisted solely of his father's watch.

Augustus retired in 1919, at which time he was living at 8 St James Terrace, Keyham, Plymouth.  In 1926 , he was reported to be living at Belcroft, Cowes, Isle of Wight. It is possible that he worked for the famous White’s shipyard in Cowes, a company that was successful in the post-war years despite the decline in the need for warships.

At the time of his death in 1929, Augustus was living at 8 Beauchamp Crescent, Peverell, Plymouth. A death notice appeared in the Western Evening Herald and an obituary in the London Times

Augustus married Rosalie Emmeline HODGE in Stoke Damerel in 1887. Rosalie was a daughter of naval pensioner William HODGE, previously chief boatman in the Coast Guard at Dartmouth, and his wife Angelina. She was born in 1864 in Mansands, Brixham and died on 25 Jun 1946 at 8 Beauchamp Crescent, Peverell.

Augustus and Rosalie had the following child.

Bessie Rosalie MITCHELMORE was born in 1889 in Stoke Damerel. She died, apparently unmarried, on 2 Sep 1971 in Plymouth and was buried in Ford Park, Plymouth.

8.35 William Arthur MITCHELMORE ( Nathaniel , John (2) , John (3) , John (4) , John (5)Peter (1), Peter (2) ) was born in 1865 in Torquay. He died on 16 Oct 1909 in Dartmouth.

Several times in later records, William gives his birthplace as Dartmouth. This may have been because he lived in Dartmouth for most of his childhood. (His younger brother Charles was also born in Torquay and also gave his birthplace as Dartmouth in the 1901 census.)

William's first sea voyage was in 1878, when he was engaged as a cook on the Catherine & Mary, a Dartmouth-registered vessel. In 1886, he joined the Royal Navy as a stoker. His naval career lasted until 1896, when he was invalided out of the service with a wrist infection while working at the Chatham base.Possibly because he was living away from Dartmouth, the inheritance William received on his father's death  in 1897 consisted solely of his father's watch chain.  

In the 1891 census, William was living aboard HMS Britannia in Dartmouth harbour while his wife and son were living in Llandudno with her parents. His whereabouts in the 1901 census has not been determined, but his wife and son were both living in Birkenhead, Lancashire (his wife in a workhouse).

William was buried at Longcross Cemetery, Townstal. His gravestone records that he was a boatswain aged 44.

William married Elizabeth BESWICK on 25 Jun 1889 at St John's Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, Llandudno, Denbighshire. The bride and groom were both living in Gadlys House, Llandudno, at the time. Elizabeth was born in 1858 in Widnes, Lancashire, the daughter of boatman Richard BESWICK and his wife Margaret. She died in 1907 at 22 Longfellow Street, Bootle, Lancashire, and was buried on 9 Oct 1907 in Farnworth, Lancashire

William and Elizabeth had one child:

Enos Augustus MITCHELMORE, also known as Ernest, was born on 29 Jul 1890 in Llandudno and died in 1971 in Plymouth.
  
In 1891, Enos was living with his mother in Llandudno but in 1901 he was boarding alone in Birkenhead. He joined the Royal Navy as a stoker in 1907, was promoted to Leading Stoker in 1916, and was still engaged in 1929. In World War I, he served aboard the battle cruiser HMS New Zealand in the same squadron as his cousin Nat and was awarded the 1914-15 Star, the British War Medal and the Victory Medal for his services.  A detailed account of the majority of his naval career is given here.

Enos married Margaret L STEER in Plymouth in 1935. Margaret was born in 1895 and died in 1962 in Plymouth. They do not appear to have had any children.

8.36 Charles Frederick MITCHELMORE ( Nathaniel , John (2) , John (3) , John (4) , John (5)Peter (1), Peter (2) ) was born on 28 Dec 1867 in Torquay, Devon, and died on 28 Apr 1918 in Dartmouth.

Charles was originally apprenticed as a baker, but then entered his father's painting and decorating business some time in the 1880s. He and his family lived in Lower Street, in the same building as his parents and the family business. In 1897 he was living in Hockworthy, Devon, but returned to Dartmouth on  his father's death when he inherited part of the family business. By 1900 he had moved to "Orcana", 15 Newcomin Road, Dartmouth, and set up his own business as a painter, decorator, plumber and glazier; weekly advertisements appeared in the Dartmouth Chronicle. By1911 he had added picture frame making and fine art dealing to his repertoire.

Charles's death and funeral were reported in the 28 April 1918 issue of the Dartmouth Chronicle. The reporter surmises that Charles' illness "was doubtless in part due to anxiety as to the fate of his son [Albert] ... from whom no news had been received since the German attack."

In his will, Charles left his entire estate (valued at 448 pounds and 10 shillings) to his wife Caroline. His sons Albert and Arthur continued to run the painting business for their mother, but two years later she sold out.

Charles married Caroline Louisa TUCKER, daughter of Dartmouth Trinity House pilot Thomas TUCKER and Sarah Ann née POPE, on 24 Nov 1887 in the Congregational Church, Paignton, Devon. An announcement appeared in the Dartmouth Chronicle.

Caroline was born on 29 May 1864 in Dartmouth and died on 13 Feb 1938 in Paignton. Her bible records the dates (and some times) of birth of all her children and most of her grandchildren. For further details on Caroline and her family history, please transfer to the TUCKER line.

8.39 Alfred Ernest MITCHELMORE ( Nathaniel , John (2) , John (3) , John (4) , John (5)Peter (1), Peter (2) ) was born in 1875 in Dartmouth and died there on 22 Mar 1926.

Although registered at birth, marriage and death as Alfred Ernest, this son was consistently known in the family as Ernest.

Ernest was a painter all his life, having no doubt been apprenticed to his father. He inherited part of the family business on his father's death in 1897 and continued to run it from the same premises in Lower Street under the name of "E. A. Mitchelmore".

On 3 Jun 1901, he jumped into the River Dart to save a boy who had fallen off the Embankment.

In 1906, Ernest travelled aboard the Saint Louis from Southampton to New York, landing at Ellis Island on 18 November. He stated that he was visiting his friend J Goldstein of 247 W 117 Street, New York. He was said to be 5' 9½" tall, with fair hair and brown eyes. The occasion of his visit is not known.

By 1923, Ernest had moved to live above his shop at 9 Fairfax Place, Dartmouth, where he sold wallpaper for 2d to 6d [1p-2½p] a roll and paint for 6d to 1s 6d [2½p-7½p] a tin.

The Dartmouth Chronicle of 26 March 1926 reports that Ernest collapsed and died one afternoon while engaged in fitting a plate glass window. A large crowd of relatives, friends and business associates attended his funeral, and the flags of the Constitutional Club and the British Legion flew at half-mast.

Alfred married Mabel Gertrude BEADON in 1897. Mabel was born in 1879 in Dartmouth, daughter of accountant Frank Samuel BEADON and Lavinia Ann née EFFORD.

After her husband died, Mabel announced that she would continue his business, but it was in effect run by her son Frank.

Ernest Frank Nathaniel MITCHELMORE was born on 3 Jul 1906 and died in Torquay in Mar 1988. He was known in the family as Frank, presumably to distinguish him from his father Ernest (whose registered name was Alfred). Frank took over the family painting business when his father died in 1926 and renamed it “Ernest Mitchelmore & Son, painter & decorator, 9 Fairfax Place”. The business was still in operation in 1939. Some time later, Frank sold the business and retired to Babbacombe, Torquay.
