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. He appears to have been the only High Court judge to escape impeachment by the Parliament of 1388

.He was the younger son of William de Skipwith and Margaret Fitzsimon. The Skipwiths were a North Yorkshire family, descended from Robert de Stuteville, lord of the manor of Skipwith in the reign of Henry III;[1] the Fitzsimons were from Ormsby in Lincolnshire, where the de Skipwiths had settled. On the death of his elder brother, William inherited the family estates.
