Norman surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. The frequent changes in surnames are largely due to the fact that the Old and Middle English languages lacked definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England, as well as the official court languages of Latin and French, also had pronounced influences on the spelling of surnames. Since medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, rather than adhering to any specific spelling rules, it was common to find the same individual referred to with different spellings. The name has been spelled Skerne, Skearne, Skern, Skearn, Skyre, Skryne, Skyrne and many more.

First found in Lincolnshire where they were Lords of the manor of Bonby, and conjecturally are descended from Ralph de Mortimer, who held his lands from Hugh Fitz Baldric, at the time of the taking of the Domesday Survey in 1086 A.D.

Many English families emigrated to North American colonies in order to escape the political chaos in Britain at this time. Unfortunately, many English families made the trip to the New World under extremely harsh conditions. Overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the stormy Atlantic. Despite these hardships, many of the families prospered and went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the United States and Canada. Early North American immigration records have revealed a number of people bearing the name Scurn or a variant listed above: Joseph Skrine landed in America in 1750.
