In Scottish history, few names go farther back than Eavarde, whose ancestors lived among the clans of the Pictish tribe. The ancestors of the Eavarde family lived on the lands of Eviot in Angus where the family has a long and distinguished history dating back to the early Middle Ages.

Eavarde Early Origins



The surname Eavarde was first found in Perthshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Pheairt) former county in the present day Council Area of Perth and Kinross, located in central Scotland, 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.

As a result, there are many spelling variations of Scottish single names. Eavarde has been written Eviot, Eviott, Evett, Evyot, Evyott, Evyotte and many more.

The Great Migration



Thousands of Scots left their home country to travel to Ireland or Australia, or to cross the Atlantic for the North American colonies. The difficult crossing was an enormous hurdle, but those who survived found freedom and opportunity in ample measure. Some Scots even fought for their freedom in the American War of Independence. This century, their ancestors have become aware of the illustrious history of the Scots in North America and at home through Clan societies and other organizations. Passenger and immigration lists show many early and influential immigrants bearing the name Eavarde: John Evit who settled in Philadelphia in 1673; Arthur Evitt settled in Nevis in 1654; Ann Evitt and Elizabeth settled in New England in 1806; Stephen Evitt settled in Philadelphia in 1836..
