Everden History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The ancient history of the Everden name begins with the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the family resided in one of the places called Everton in the counties of Bedfordshire, Lancashire and Nottinghamshire. The surname Everden belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.


Early Origins of the Everden family


The surname Everden 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]

Everden Spelling Variations


Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Everden include Everton, Evarton, Evirton and others.

Migration of the Everden family to the New World and Oceana


Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Everden or a variant listed above:
