I have lots of data of the Thomas GATENBY linage but very limited with your SKAIFE interest. However a little detective work may have come up with something useful, and links into the names you mention.
The marriage of Thomas and Sarah was witnessed by two people. One was the sister of Thomas, Alice GATENBY, and the other was a Susannah SKAIFE. I believe she was probably the sister of Sarah.
I search of the IGI for possible births (near Ripon) of Susannah and Sarah with the same parents came up trumps:

SUSANNAH SKAIFE
Christening: 20 MAY 1796 Hartwith Cum Winsley, Yorkshire, England

Parents:
Father: THOS. SKAIFE Family
Mother: HANNAH


Sarah Skaife
Christening: 23 JUL 1797 Hartwith Cum Winsley,

Parents:
Father: THOS. SKAIFE Family
Mother: HANNAH

There are a few other siblings listed too. Hartwith Cum Winsley is only 7 miles from Ripon. I think this could be a useful lead.
