I have no idea, but there seems to be several variants on the name Skelcher. In Martinique, the great French emancipator was Schelcher. I think from my research Skelcher is a Saxon name and changed depending on where they migrated. Skelcher is an English variant with my family originating in the Oxfordshire area.
