The ancestors of the name Eavertane date back to the days of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from their residence in one of the places called Everton in the counties of Bedfordshire, Lancashire and Nottinghamshire. The surname Eavertane belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Eavertane Early Origins



The surname Eavertane was first found in Lancashire, but other locals are quite possible as the name is derived from the Old English "eofor" + "tun" which meant "farmstead where the wild boars are seen." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Understandably this Old English expression could apply to many locals. Nevertheless, the name has two quite distinct entries in the Domesday Book of 1086: Eureton in Bedfordshire; Evreton in Nottinghamshire; and Everdone in Northamptonshire. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



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 Eavertanes to arrive on North American shores: James Everton who arrived in New Orleans in 1823; Julia Everton arrived in Boston in 1850; Harnet Everton settled in Nantucket in 1823.
