Per the Silver Book of The Mayflower Families/Isaac Allerton Dea. Thomas Skinner is not shown as a son of Thomas 'the baker' Skinner of Boston and his wife Elizabeth Maverick Grafton Skinner (she was Isaac Allerton's granddaughter via Remember Allerton who married Moses Maverick). One son John is listed in the book along with several of his sisters. He was not included in the guardianship papers after Thomas 'the baker' died in 1690 - he was only 11 or 12 at the time of his father's death so if he was alive should have been included in the guardianship.

Dea. Thomas Skinner did not have a wife Elizabeth, see http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~hutch/EGGLESTON/Skinner.htm

From http://kristinhall.org/fambly/Maverick/MosesMaverick.html (dead link March 2017)

Moses [Maverick's] will was dated January 1685/6, but was not signed by him. It was presented on 30 March 1686 but not accepted by the court as some of the children objected. Named in the will were: his second wife Eunice; Moses Hawks -- only surviving child of his daughter Rebecca; the four children of his deceased daughter Abigail, namely, Samuel Ward, Abigail Hinds, Mary Dallabar and Martha Ward; his other daughters Elizabeth Skinner, Remember Woodman, Mary Fferguson [sic] and Sarah Norman; and his son-in-law, Archebald Ffurgeson [sic].

On 29 September 1691, Edward Woodman, Sr. of Boston -- who was the husband of his daughter Remember Maverick -- petitioned on behalf of the seven Woodman children that "Unice" be ordered to give an account of her administration of Moses Maverick's estate.
