Evarall Spelling Variations



Before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Sound was what guided spelling in the Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Evarall family name include Averell, Averall, Avrill, Avril, Averel, Abrill and many more.

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Evarall family to immigrate North America: Mr. Averel, aged 36; who landed in New York State in 1820; Alexander Averell landed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1866; followed by Arthur Averell in 1878.
