I've got a Susanna SKIPPAGE in my family tree. She was baptised 6 Feb 1785 in Hadstock, Essex. The daughter of John SKIPPAGE and Susanna WRIGHT. They were married 12 Oct 1778 in Hadstock. Other children include:
Grace (bp.26 Sep 1779; m.12 May 1801 James WEBB)
Sarah (bp.23 Mar 1781; m.23 May 1799 Daniel BARKER)
Robert (bp.6 Apr 1783)
John was a widower when he married Susanna and his previous wife was probably Anne SAVILL (m.18 Sep 1773). Their only child was Millicent (bp.16 Nov 1777).
The only other baptism record for a SKIPPAGE was Elizabeth (bp.17 Mar 1776) the daughter of John and Elizabeth. Elizabeth may have been John's previous wife but not burial records are included for any SKIPPAGE in the register and their marriage must not have happened in Hadstock as it's not in the register. There are only two other SKIPPAGE marriages listed:
Anne (m.17 Jun 1817 John ASHBY)
Charles (m.17 Jun 1837 Mahala PEARSON alias Alice)

All the above events took place in Hadstock and are sourced from the Parish Register.

Hope this all helps. I'd appreciate any info you have on the John and Susanna line.
