Skull born 1780
from the SWOP
number RHW : 01158
Skull, my father, came from Wiltshire years ago
I‘m an auctioneer now and I live off Oxford Road,
with my wife, Elizabeth, and all our brood of kids
liked it here in Wycombe and so settled down to live.
this was where the industry for making chairs was born
here were all the timber yards where wood was cut and sawn,
me, a man with mouths to feed, for I have several sons,
hoped that they might be High Wycombe’s lucky ones.
Skull is recorded as being both a
japanner and an auctioneer. He married Elizabeth Griffits,
of James Olliff Griffits.
