We think it very likely that the family shown in the main body of this page was closely connected to that shown in the top section but we hold back from showing an actual connection between them as such would be wildly speculative. Accordingly, we are breaking one of our basic rules in providing the following section as there is no sure link between any person in it and anyone else in the database. However, not to do so would risk us losing sight of a prospective extension of the main body.

  i. Thomas Skrymshire or Skrimshire of Johnson
  Visitation (1583) shows Thomas m. Elizabeth, dau of William Wyrley, with unnamed issue. Visitation (1664-1700) shows him as m. Dorothy Gatacre, mother of Thomas (m. Margaret Midlemore). Visitation (1614+1663-4, Skrymshire of Johnson) starts with the Thomas who m. Dorothy Gatacre with a note added by the Harleian editor to suggest that he was son of the Thomas who m. Elizabeth Wyrley. We follow this last view which shows that Visitation (1664+1670) missed out this generation.
