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 surname Everard was 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.

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.

For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Everard or a variant listed above:
