Eaversind History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
Eaversind is an ancient Anglo-Saxon name that is derived from the personal names Evot or Everard. The surname Eaversind features the common suffix -son, which superseded all other patronymic suffixes as the dominant form during the 14th century and was most common in the north of England.
Early Origins of the Eaversind family
The surname Eaversind was first found in Yorkshire where the first record of the family was William Evoteson who was listed there in 1325. 
John of Eversden or Everisden (fl. 1300), was an early English chronicler, "presumably a native of one of the two villages of the name near Caxton, Cambridgeshire. He entered the Benedictine order, having been tonsured in 1255, and became a member of the abbey of Bury St. Edmunds. He was cellarer there in 1300, when he made a 'valida expeditio' into Northamptonshire to carry out a claim of his monastery on the manor of Werketon." 
Today Great Eversden and Little Eversden are parishes in the union of Caxton and Arrington, hundred of Longstow, Cambridgeshire.

Migration of the Eaversind family
In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Eaversinds to arrive on North American shores: Captain Everson who settled in Boston in 1763; Matthew Everson settled in Virginia in 1653; Barnt Eversen settled in New York in 1658; Martin Eversen settled in Georgia in 1734..
