Skeavington family history... Please help!

Hello, I am new to this site and wondered if anyone's family tree might link in with mine.

So far I have found Robert Knighton Skeavington 1925-1990. His mother was Gladys Spackman and her mother was Mary Knighton, and I believe this is where Knighton started to become middle names for some of the Skeavington men. I have also found that some of my distant family members surname are spelt 'Skevington'.

The furthest I have got to is Robert Skevington born 1791. I find it difficult to track my family history due to the so many George's n Robert's that alternate between the generations.

If anyone could help with any information I'd greatly appreciate it. I find it so interesting but don't really know how to go about researching it.

Thank you, Lindsay Skeavington, Nottinghamshire
