I agree with you that the Skelton and Shelton names are
sometimes interchangeable depending on the clerk who wrote
the name on a document. My Robertson Family is often called, Robison/Roberson, etc. and those are different
families so all has to be researched to separate them.
The Skelton Castle is in Yorkshire and they are also
represented in Cumberland Co., and the Isle of Man (with
the Gilliam Family.)
Do you descend from William Dykes Sr. of Hawkins County,
