About John Skinner


Thomas Skinner is said to have been baptized at the Subdeanery parish, Chichester. Subdeanery Parish is a parish within Chichester Cathedral itself circa 1538 – Chichester St. Peter the Great (alias Subdeanery) (1558). The only proof that Thomas was ever living in Chichester is the record of his son John’s baptism at North Mudham in 1647. One researcher corresponded with the West Sussex Record Office in 1984 and received this reply: (2) “. . . The baptism entries of Thomas Skinner at Subdeanery parish, Chichester, in 1645 and that of Abraham Skinner at Subdeanery or All Saints in the Pallant, Chichester in 1647 are not in the surviving parish registers which are in this office . . .” This researcher stated that there is a listing for a Thomas Skinner, son of John, born April 6, 1618 at Debden, Essex, England. He wrote the Essex Society for family history to verify this city name and the reply stated that there was a Debden, but also a Dedham, both in Essex (see Deacon John Skinner of Hartford below).
