From "A History of the Descendants of George Goforth of Knedlington, England
Fourth Edition, June 1988
George Tuttle Goforth

Willoughby Skipwith, Esquire, was a Royalist who supported Charles I against Cromwell. He died at his home, Skipwith, Yorkshire, in 1658. His widow, Honora Skipwith became a Quaker Martyr and died in York Castle on April 15, 1679, "A prisoner in York Castle for the Truth."

This ancient Norman-French family has been traced back 900 years and more to before the Norman Invasion and conquest by William the Conqueror, Duke of Normandy, who became King William of England in 1066. The family is descended from Robert De[D']Estouteville, of Cottingham - a Norman Baron who accompanied William the Conqueror to England in 1066.

Willoughby Skipwith sold his estate at Ormsby, Lincolnshire, in 1638, three years after the baptism of his son Patrick, and retired to Skipwith in Yorkshire, the ancient lordship from which his family had taken its name. He was then about 27 years old, baptised at South Ormsby on January 3, 1612-1613. In the Civil Wars which soon followed, he took side of the Cavaliers, and died in 1658, two years before the restoration of the Stuarts. Administration of his estate was granted his wife Honora.
