Subject: The family name of Skinner
Date: 28 Jun 2000
From: "Paula Skinner" <pskinner@vo.lu>
My family and I are currently living in Luxembourg, we originate from Oxford, England, but know that our family ties are not just from this area of England. Our daughter Nicolle Skinner, her name does not appear on any search engines for the Skinner name. Is she the first to have this name in a Skinner family? I know that the spelling of her name is a little unusual, but we believe it is the Australian version of Nicole.
can you help us?
Many thanks

I have copies of both books by Natalie Fernald.
I will happily do lookups for you.
None of the SKINNERs listed are from areas other than the northeast, so I can not be of help if your ancestors are from southern areas.
The books begin in the 1600's and go up to the early 1800's. Please provide the information you have along with your query.

I am looking for information on George Skinner Stephens. I have been unsuccessful in locating any information on him. I know
that he died February 5, 1901 in Pennsylvania, U.S.A. His wife was Harriet Jane Pellow Stephens. I believe they migrated from Cornwall, England to the U.S.A. in the late 1800's or
early 1900.
I know that when he passed away a brother came from England for the funeral and that leads me to believe there are still relatives
in England.
Any help you may be able to give me would be appreciated.

Greg, I got your name as a Skinner Family Guild Member from the Internet. I am hoping you can help me. My grandfather's mother is listed
on his birth certificate as "Annabella Richards formerly Skinner". I have been unable to find any information about her so far. My grandfather was born in Trecrogo, South Petherwin on February 8, 1885. I don't know where his parents John Henry Richards and Annabella Skinner might have been born, however, I suspect they would be from somewhere in the Cornwall area.
Do you have any information that might help me? I searched the Surname Index on the Skinner site but had no luck finding an "Annabella"

Thank you, thank you, thank you for your wonderful website. My husband's family comes from Elizabeth Skinner, daughter of Hugh and Sarah, she married William Dyke. I had not even tried working on the Skinners because they were so numerous and I did not know where to start. We suspected that her father was Hugh because she is buried with a Hugh Skinner in the Jonesburg, Missouri cemetary and we figured that was her brother. Anyway. Thank you again. Is there a way to connect with other Skinner descendants from the same family? We also have a Skinner connection to another family. My husband's South family plugs into Spicy Skinner who married John South. We are pretty sure John was brother to our Thomas but we are having problems figuring out which family is which with those Souths. Wow, you all made my Saturday. And it needed some uplifting after two awful weeks at work. Have I said "thank you"
I really mean it. Jan Varnon, Lake Mary, FL

My name is Edward Skinner and I am descended from Scottish Skinners that settled in Newfoundland, Canada in the nineteenth century. I found your website to be fascinating and would appreciate any contact with other Skinners. My ancestors survived by swordfishing on the Grand Banks of Newfoundland. The majority of the clan still resides in newfoundland still making their living from the sea. I have met few Skinners living in Halifax and fewer more that are any relation to the Skinners of Newfoundland. Thanks for the great site.
