Note on Husband: John SKIMMING (1)

John's actual date of birth is unknown, I have chosen his year of birth as 1825 because that is the year that works out from his age on his death certificate and the 1841 census. Other censuses suggest years between 1820 and 1823.

John changed his Surname to McSkimming between the 1881 and 1891 censuses.

Note on Husband: John SKIMMING (2)

John's age on his death certificate was 67, his date of birth was calculated from that.
