Reference number RHW : 08145

Tom Skull, he came from Wiltshire,
From Dauntsey so they say,
And finding work in Wycombe
He thought he’d like to stay,
He had a wife called Mary
And six children, girls and boys,
And they flourished in the Chilterns
With its woods and other joys.

The Skulls came from the area around Dauntsey in Wiltshire.  Thomas is likely to have been the son of a Charles Skull.  Mary Clark is most likely to have been one of the chair-making Clarks but her origins are still unclear. Their children Charles, Thomas and Jeoffrey were all linked to the Bucks furniture industry.
