Robert Skinner

b: 28 MAY 1655
d: 20 MAR 1697
From the account of Robert Skinner DD, Bishop of Worcester

Matthew's oldest son Robert was born at Stratton Audley, May 28, 1655. He is thus, in his own handwriting, described in the entrance book of Trinity College, Oxford. Ego. Robertus Skinner, filius Mathoei Skinner, Armigeri, de Stratton Audley, in Comitatu Oxoniensi, Admissus sum generosus commensalis, sub tutamine Magistri Wills, men., December, 1670. He was B.A., July 2nd, 1674. He was admitted at the Inner Temple, 6th November, 1673, and then described, as filius Domini Skinner, de Hallow in Com. Worcester. He was called to the Bar, 12th February, 1681.

He married Anne, eldest daughter of William Buckby, Serjeant-at-Law, by Mary his wife, only daughter of Sir Richard Raynsford, Knight, of Dullington, Northamptonshire; a Baron of the Exchequer, November 16th, 1663; Judge of the King’s Bench, February 19th, 1669; Lord Chief Justice of England, May 12th, 1676. A fine portrait of Raynsford adorns the Parliament Room in Lincoln's-Inn. It appears, by the Bishop's will, that the Raynsfords were related to him. He was a diligent lawyer, as is shown by "Skinner's Reports," and being, at an early age, Judge of the Marshalsea Court, died March 20tli, 1697-8, and was buried in St. Faith's under St. Paul's. He had three sons and three daughters, Anne, Catherine, and Mary, all born in Lincoln's-Inn-Fields.
