[2] Richard and William Everard were listed in the Curia Regis Rolls for Bedfordshire in 1204 and later in the Assize Rolls for Somerset in 1225.

Eborard or Everard (1083?-1150), was the second bishop of Norwich, whose whole career is involved in a mist of uncertainty. "Till recently it was believed without misgiving that he was the son of Roger, Lord of Belleme. All that we certainly know of Eborard is that he was Archdeacon of Salisbury in 1121." [4]

Migration of the Evaredge family

A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: 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..
