An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The ancestors of the name Everdant date back to the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the Everdant family lived in one of the places called Everton in the counties of Bedfordshire, Lancashire and Nottinghamshire. The surname Everdant belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Everdant Early Origins



The surname Everdant was first found in Lancashire, but other locals are quite possible as the name is derived from the Old English "eofor" + "tun" which meant "farmstead where the wild boars are seen." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Understandably this Old English expression could apply to many locals. Nevertheless, the name has two quite distinct entries in the Domesday Book of 1086: Eureton in Bedfordshire; Evreton in Nottinghamshire; and Everdone in Northamptonshire. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Everdant or a variant listed above: James Everton who arrived in New Orleans in 1823; Julia Everton arrived in Boston in 1850; Harnet Everton settled in Nantucket in 1823.
