    From Wikipedia:

    William de Skipwith was a fourteenth-century English judge. He held the office of Chief Baron of the Exchequer 1362-5. He suffered temporary disgrace when he was removed from office for corruption, but was restored to favour, became Lord Chief Justice of Ireland 1370-2, and later returned to the English bench. He appears to have been the only High Court judge to escape impeachment by the English Parliament of 1388.

    A memorial brass in Covenham church reads Hic jacet, Joh├ęs Skypwyth Armiger qui obut xv die mensis Julii anno d'ni mill'imo ccccxvii, cui a' i' e' p' piciet Deus. Amen.

    "During his term of office [as sheriff of Lincolnshire] he and his henchmen appear to have inflicted a virtual reign of terror upon the county, and as a result of six separate petitions submitted to the chancellor by his victims he was summoned to appear before the justices of assize at Lincoln in August 1397 to face charges of robbery with violence, blackmail, extortion, false imprisonment and intimidation. All these allegations were found to be true, although the court's verdict had little effect upon his career, and by November 1398 he was again serving as a royal commissioner."
