Skelton Genealogy & History

Skelton is from the pre-seventh-century Old English word scylf (a dry area of land surrounded by marshes and/or water) plus tun (a village or enclosed area). Consequently, this is a locational name for someone who is part of a settlement in a dry spot in the marsh or fens. Skelton family history has the first known record spelling of the name as Hamo de Skelton in the Early Yorkshire Charter Lists in 1160. Some members of the Skelton genealogy include polar explorer Reginald William Skelton; cartographer Raleigh Ashlin Skelton; land speed record holder and aviator Betty Skelton Frankman; and comedian Red Skelton.
