Scope and content
Pedigree of the Skipwith family of Skipwith, Yorks., and Ormesby, Lincs. With many coloured shields. The heading states that the family derived its name from the manor of Schypwye (Skipwith), Yorks., temp. Hen. I or Stephen, and that the pedigree is based on charters and other written evidence at Ormesby in the custody of William Skipwith, lord of the manors of Skipwith and Ormesby (temp. Jas. I). There follows a note on the arms, and, in a cartouche, the descent of three generations from Patrick de Skipwith to William de Skipwith, the last to live at Skipwith (the ancient charters at Skipwith are said to be 'surrepti (sic) aut deformate'). Tabular pedigree commencing with William de Skipwith (temp. Hen. III) and ending with five children (William, Henry, Thomas, Elizabeth and Diana) of Sir Henry Skipwith (afterwards 1st Bt., 1622). With descents and shields of related families including royal descents to James I. Full achievement of Skipwith at the foot.
