About Anne Wyatt (Skipwith)
Adelle Bartlett-Harper, in her work on the origins of the Wyatt family says that "Ancient English manuscripts state that the first Wyatt to come to England is said to have been Admiral Wyatt, or Guyot as the name was spelt in Normandy. Guyot had charge of the Norman fleet when William the Conqueror landed in 1066. He married one of the Conquerors daughters and along with others was awarded large estates, which were located in Yorkshire, near the ancient town of Southange. In time the name Guyot was anglicised to Wiot, then Wiat and finally to Wyatt, by Sir Francis Wyatt, while Governor of Virginia; this being one of the five spellings he used during his term of office 1621-29, when signing official documents.
