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 Evaradges to arrive on North American shores: Martha and Phillip Everard who settled in Virginia in 1660; John Everard settled in Jamaica in 1684; another John Everard arrived in Philadelphia in 1856..
