John Skrine's Will is dated 10th January 1697, and it was proved on 8th March 1697 (P.C.C. 85 Lort. PROB 11/444/210
) by his widow. The Will was afterwards again proved on 9th April 1712, under a power reserved, by his son, Richard, on his attaining the age of 21.

In the Will he states that his father-in-law, Mr. Dickson, has promised to give his daughter, Sarah Maria, a very good fortune "when she shall be capable"; he, therefore, out of fatherly kindness gives her in addition 1,000 out of the trust money of his marriage articles. The remainder of this trust money he gives to his son Richard. He gives money for handsome mourning rings to his wife's father and mother; to his wife 50 to buy mourning, and all his household stuff, plate, etc., so long as she remains widow, also his charriott and horses in London and his coach in the country. He makes provision for any posthumous child that may be born to him; and gives his books in the Temple and in the country to his son. The "mixt lands" which he lately purchased from Mr. William Fisher of Hampton (Bathampton) are to remain to his wife during widowhood, afterwards to his son Richard and his heirs.

Should his widow re-marry, his plate, jewels and household stuff are to be shared equally by his son and daughter. He orders that the walk is to be made up to his house from the Mill Lane. He makes gifts of money to his wife, to Mr. Josiah Woodward, to all his servants and to the poor of Bathford and Warley. His father-in-law, his wife, and Mr. Josiah Woodward are appointed executors in trust for his son, Richard, who is made sole executor.


John married Elizabeth DICKSON [513] [MRIN: 5908], daughter of Richard DICKSON [7072] and Sarah [22470], on 26 Jun 1690 in St James Clerkenwell LND. (Elizabeth DICKSON [513] was baptised on 1 Jan 1674/75 in St Paul Covent Garden, died on 18 Jan 1713/14 and was buried on 25 Jan 1713/14 in St Giles in Fields Camberwell.)
