These sonatas are indeed arrangements of Corelli's concerti grossi. The relationship between the original concerti and Schickhardt's sonatas is quite unusual, as we may see from the table below.

[Trio] Sonata I in F
This sonata is the most mixed: it borrowed from three concerti and the last movement apparently is original.
1. Largo Concerto IX, Preludio - Andante largo F Schickhardt flattens most original dotted quaver/semiquaver patterns and introduced light divisions on the upper parts. The two versions have the same number of bars.
2. Allemanda - Vivace Concerto X, Allemanda - Allegro C The two versions have the same number of bars.
3. Allegro Concerto IX, Minuetto - Vivace F The two versions have the same number of bars.
4. Allegro Concerto VI, Allegro [last mov.] F The two versions have the same number of bars.
5. Giga - - So far as I know, this movement is the only one among the whole Schickhardt opus to have no correspondence with any Corelli's compositions.
[Trio] Sonata II in G
Why did Schickhardt not use the «Preludio» of the Concerto IX here, making this sonata more consistent? In all likelihood, there was a transposition's issue.
1. Andante Concerto X, Preludio - Andante largo C Schickhardt introduced light divisions on the upper parts. The two versions have the same number of bars.
2. Allemanda - Allegro Concerto IX, Allemanda - Allegro F The two versions have the same number of bars and are quite similar.
3. Corrente - Allegro Concerto IX, Corrente - Vivace F The two versions have the same number of bars.
4. Gavotta - Allegro Concerto IX, Gavotta - Allegro F The two versions have the same number of bars, though in Corelli's the ritornelli are written out in full.
[Trio] Sonata III in D
This sonata just follows one original concerto and the movements are placed in the right order. Nevertheless, two original movements were omitted, perhaps because they are not dance movements.
1. Largo Concerto XI, Preludio - Andante largo Bb Schickhardt omitted the two grand pauses, hence his version is two bars short.
2. Allemanda - Allegro Concerto XI, Allemanda - Allegro Bb The two versions have the same number of bars.
3. Sarabanda - Largo Concerto XI, Sarabanda - Largo Bb The two versions have the same number of bars.
4. Giga - Vivace Concerto XI, Giga - Vivace Bb The two versions have the same number of bars.
[Trio] Sonata IV in F
 
1. Largo / Allegro / Adagio / Allegro / Adagio / Allegro / Adagio Concerto I, Preludio - Largo / Allegro / Adagio / Allegro / Adagio / Allegro / Adagio D  
2. Allegro Concerto II, Allegro F  
3. Grave / Andante largo Concerto II, Grave / Andante largo F This movement originally precedes the previous one.
4. Allegro Concerto I, Allegro D Schickhardt omitted a large section in the middle.
[Trio] Sonata V in d
This sonata just follows one original concerto and the movements are placed in the right order. Nevertheless, an original movement «Grave» was omitted.
1. Largo Concerto III, Preludio - Largo c Cf. Trio Sonata I, Mov. 1.
2. Allegro / Adagio Concerto III, Allegro / Adagio c The two versions have the same number of bars.
3. Vivace Concerto III, Vivace c  
4. Giga - Allegro Concerto III, Allegro c Was the original movement conceived as a Giga?
[Trio] Sonata VI in F
This sonata just follows one original concerto and the movements are placed in the right order. Nevertheless, an original movement «Adagio» was omitted.
1. Adagio Concerto XII, Preludio - Adagio F Schickhardt introduced light divisions on the upper parts.
2. Allegro Concerto XII, Allegro F  
3. Sarabanda - Adagio Concerto XII, Sarabanda - Vivace F The tempo mark differs. Light divisions.
4. Giga - Allegro Concerto XII, Giga - Allegro F  
[Trio] Sonata VII in F
Really mixed sonata.
1. Allegro / Adagio Concerto II, Allegro / Adagio / Largo andante F Schickhardt preferred to use the second occurence of the «Allegro».
The original tempo mark «Largo andante» was omitted.
2. Sarabanda Concerto IV, Vivace D Light divisions on the upper parts.
In all likelihood Schickhardt's version asks for a tempo slower than the original one.
Was the original movement conceived as a Sarabanda?
3. Allegro Concerto VII, Allegro D The two versions have the same number of bars.
4. Giga - Allegro Concerto IV, Allegro D Was the original movement conceived as a Giga?
[Trio] Sonata VIII in g
This sonata just follows one original concerto, but large parts of it were omitted.
1. Allegro Concerto VIII, Allegro g  
2. Adagio Concerto VIII, Adagio Eb Schickhardt preferred to use the second occurence of the «Adagio».
3. Vivace Concerto VIII, Vivace g  
4. Allegro Concerto VIII, Allegro g  
[Trio] Sonata IX in F
This sonata has just three movements.
1. Allegro Concerto IV, Allegro D  
2. Andante largo Concerto VII, Andante largo b The sonata movement is in d.
3. Allegro Concerto VI, Vivace F  
[Trio] Sonata X in Eb
This sonata just follows Concerto X, but only from the third movement, since the first two movements had been already used for Sonata II and Sonata I respectively.
1. Adagio Concerto X, Adagio C  
2. Corrente - Vivace Concerto X, Corrente - Vivace C  
3. Allegro Concerto X, Allegro C  
4. Vivace Concerto X, Minuetto - Vivace C Schickhardt omitted the dance rubric.
[Trio] Sonata XI in F
This sonata has just three movements.
1. Adagio Concerto VI, Adagio F Light divisions on the upper parts.
2. Allegro Concerto VI, Allegro F  
3. Vivace Concerto VII, Vivace D  
[Trio] Sonata XII in Bb
Although this sonata just follows Concerto V, large parts of it were omitted, and the movements do not follow the original order.
1. Adagio Concerto V, Adagio Bb Schickhardt did not link the following «Allegro» to this movement.
2. Allegro Concerto V, Allegro Bb Originally alla breve: Schickhardt halved the values throughout the movement.
3. Adagio Concerto V, Adagio Bb Originally, this movement precedes the previous one. Original time signature: 3/8. Schickhardt changed it in 3/4 and doubled the values throughout the movement.
4. Allegro Concerto V, Allegro Bb
