Line 3489 from GEDCOM File not recognizable or too long: CONC John Skinner is, at this time, the farthest ancestor that I can

Line 3490 from GEDCOM File not recognizable or too long: CONC prove in our tree. I believe he was the son of Alixander Skinner. He

Line 3491 from GEDCOM File not recognizable or too long: CONC was the second son to be named that name, as the first son passed away

Line 3492 from GEDCOM File not recognizable or too long: CONC soon after birth (reusing a name was very common in those days of high

Line 3493 from GEDCOM File not recognizable or too long: CONC infant mortality). Anyway he lived in a rural parish called

Line 3494 from GEDCOM File not recognizable or too long: CONC Chittlehampton in the county of Devon in Western England.

Line 3495 from GEDCOM File not recognizable or too long: CONT In the year of his birth England was at war with Spain in the War of

Line 3496 from GEDCOM File not recognizable or too long: CONC Jenkins Ear. England was in virtually a constant state of war for most

Line 3499 from GEDCOM File not recognizable or too long: CONC long after, 5 months to be exact, they had the birth of their first

Line 3504 from GEDCOM File not recognizable or too long: CONC Charles the II most land had been bought from these yeoman, or

Line 3505 from GEDCOM File not recognizable or too long: CONC independent farmers, and formed into large estates of the nobility. The

Line 3506 from GEDCOM File not recognizable or too long: CONC nobility would build a large manor house on one piece of land and then

Line 3507 from GEDCOM File not recognizable or too long: CONC rent out the rest to various "tennants" or yeoman farmers. By the 1780's

Line 3508 from GEDCOM File not recognizable or too long: CONC John was renting an estate called Hobb's Bradbury. The owner, or

Line 3509 from GEDCOM File not recognizable or too long: CONC landlord, of this property was Sir Hugh the Earl of Fortescue.

Line 3510 from GEDCOM File not recognizable or too long: CONT John lived the rest of his life on this farm. In his later years

Line 3511 from GEDCOM File not recognizable or too long: CONC his son Thomas assumed more and more of the duties until John passed away

Line 3512 from GEDCOM File not recognizable or too long: CONC in late 1808. In March of 1809 Thomas Skinner settled John's will for a
