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


The origins of the name Everett are with the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from the Germanic personal name Eberhard. Everett is a patronymic surname, which belongs to the category of hereditary surnames. Many patronymic surnames were formed by adopting the given name of an ancestor of the bearer, while others came from popular religious names, and from the names of secular heroes. The surname Everett comes from the Germanic given name Eberhard, which was composed of the elements eber and hard, which mean wild boar and brave, hardy, or strong. This surname first appeared in England in Wiltshire, where members of this family had lived since before the Norman invasion of 1066.

Everett Early Origins



The surname Everett was first found in Wiltshire 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.

Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Everetts to arrive in North America:
