Five Generations of Family Jewellers
Mitton's Jewellery was established in Ridgetown Ontario, in 1897 by William Welbry Mitton. William's son, Lyn, joined him in the store in 1901. Together they offered watch making, optometry and sold china, silver hollow wares and fine jewellery.
William Welbry continued to work as a watchmaker until his death in 1929. Lyn then carried on the family business. In 1938 Lyn's son, Fred, joined him in the store and they worked together until Lyn's passing in 1941.Although Fred was only 17, he took over the business with the help of his mother. Fred also trained as a watchmaker and jeweller.
Fred's son Craig joined him in the store in 1974. Craig trained as a goldsmith and is a Graduate Jeweller from the Canadian Jewellers Association. In 2007, Craig's son, Charlie, joined him at Mitton's. Charlie has trained as a goldsmith and Is a GIA Graduate Gemologist.
