The name Everette was spawned by the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture that ruled a majority of Britain. It comes from the Germanic personal name Eberhard.

Migration of the Everette family
In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Everettes to arrive on North American shores: Clement Everet who settled in Virginia in 1654; John Everet settled in New England in 1654; Andrew Everett settled in Maine in 1630; Christopher Everett settled in Virginia in 1635.
