Scrine Spelling Variations
A multitude of spelling variations

also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Skerne, Skearne, Skern, Skearn, Skyre, Skryne, Skyrne and many more.
