Where did the English Everitt family come from? What is the English Everitt family crest and coat of arms? When did the Everitt family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Everitt family history?

The rich and ancient history of the Everitt family name dates back to the time of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It comes from the Germanic personal name Eberhard. Everitt is a patronymic surname, which belongs to the category of hereditary surnames. Many patronymic surnames were formed by adopting the given name of an ancestor of the bearer, while others came from popular religious names, and from the names of secular heroes. The surname Everitt comes from the Germanic given name Eberhard, which was composed of the elements eber and hard, which mean wild boar and brave, hardy, or strong. This surname first appeared in England in Wiltshire, where members of this family had lived since before the Norman invasion of 1066.

Spelling variations in names were a common occurrence before English spelling was standardized a few hundred years ago. In the Middle Ages, even the literate spelled their names differently as the English language incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other European languages. Many variations of the name Everitt have been found, including Everett, Everatt, Everet and others.

First found in Wiltshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
