The comment on there dark skin is due to there ancestors who orginated from northern India . 

The old romani came from India hundreds of years ago qnd yes that's why they have dark skin ,but a lot of travelling families are Irish descendent but class themselves as romani,

The pavve people  was here in Britain well before the romani came to UK

I assume there would have been some inter marriages down the centuries hence the appearance of some having darker skin . But also it could be argued that some people have a much darker skin complexion to others examples people with very black hair tend to have a darker skin . in reality it could be any number of reasons to be honest .

I'd put money on it they isn't no pure romani familes left in UK, years ago the old true romani only married other romani but that went to the wall long time ago and all traveling family's have at some point married out side there own kind ,

Like you say they could be many reasons why some are dark skinned .
