John Skinner (17 May 1744 -13 July 1816) was the son of John Skinner and a bishop of the Diocese of Aberdeen and Orkney of the Scottish Episcopal Church in the late 18th century. Made coadjutor of Aberdeen on 25 September 1782, Skinner was one of the three bishops to consecrate Samuel Seabury, an American Episcopal priest as a bishop in 1784. Skinner became Bishop of Aberdeen on the resignation of Bishop Robert Kilgour in 1786, and was also Primus of Scotland from 1788 to 1816. He died in July 1816, and his son William Skinner was made bishop in his place.
