William de Skipwith (died after 1392) was a fourteenth-century English judge. He held the office of Chief Baron of the Exchequer 1362-5. He suffered temporary disgrace when he was removed from office for corruption, but was restored to favour, became Lord Chief Justice of Ireland 1370-6, and later returned to the English bench.
