Where did the English Everard family come from? What is the English Everard family crest and coat of arms? When did the Everard family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Everard family history?Everard is a name whose history dates far back into the mists of early British times to the days of the Anglo-Saxon tribes. It is a name for a a hard and ever enduring personality. The surname Everard originally derived from the Old German Eberhardt which referred to the endurance and strength of a boar. It was adopted in England after the Norman Conquest of 1066.
The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Everard has been recorded under many different variations, including Everard, Evererd, Everid and others.
First found in Essex where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
