The Eaversint surname finds its earliest origins with the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name is derived from the personal names Evot or Everard.

Early Origins of the Eaversint family

The surname Eaversint was first found in Yorkshire where the first record of the family was William Evoteson who was listed there in 1325. [1]

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." [2]

Today Great Eversden and Little Eversden are parishes in the union of Caxton and Arrington, hundred of Longstow, Cambridgeshire. [3]

Migration of the Eaversint family

Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Eaversint or a variant listed above: 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..
