John SKILDER. Possibly also Jonas.
A church paper dated 2 Sep 1655 included amongst the signatories Jan de Schildere. [Records of the Dutch Chapel on Canvey Island and the synod preserved at the Austin Friars Dutch Church in London]
It would appear from baptisms in the Bowers Gifford Register from 1666-1679 that John's wife was Mary. A Mary Skelder was a beneficiary in the will of her brother Mathew Van Rayning in 1677. It would appear then that John Skilder married Mary Van Rayning.
John Skilder is also a beneficiary in the will of William Cherry (William Cherrie) in 1679, where John is described by Cherry as his "Master". In the burial register of Bowers Gifford in 1685, John's son Lawrence is buried with the notation "late of Bowers Hall".

A Jonas Skilder was buried on 16 Sep 1697 in Bowers Gifford, Essex. Jonas Skilder left a will naming Catherine as his wife.
Joores SKILDER. Possibly the same person as George? In 1684 a Joores de Schilder was an elder of the Dutch Church on Canvey Island at the London meeting.
Sarah SKILDER. Possibly the wife of George as mentioned in the same Assize File in 1674 (see George above).
