Decendants of William Edward and Catherine Betheridge Skinner nee Topp
The Family Tree (William Edward born Demerara British Guiana 1805)
Compiled by their Great Grand Son David Norman Bethridge Skinner
“It was my brother John Edward who started this endeavour 21 years ago in 1986. A great debt of gratitude is owed to all those extended family members who contributed greatly to the information herein. Our hope is that a member of the immediate or extended family will one day take over where we leave off and expand and distribute it where possible. Nothing is known of my Uncle William Eden (born 1881) after 1884. A History of Walter Edward Alexander Skinner and Elizabeth Anne Mary Witney (pictured left), who we are all related to in blood or law, and most owe our existance to, is included here (will insert link) covering the years 1878-1884, 1898 and also 1913 to 1939.
A special thanks goes to Debora Little nee Skinner daughter of my cousin Norman jnr. for the old journal and to my brothers Brian and John who safely kept the many other journals after our father died.
A special thanks also goes to Dawn Powell (nee James) in the UK for many hours spent digging up the old history which gives colour to our family’s past.”
