Everidge History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The name Everidge is an ancient Anglo-Saxon name that was given to a person who was a a hard and ever enduring personality.

The surname Everidge was first found in the Domesday Book of 1086 where Ebrard, Eurardus were listed at that time. [2] Richard and William Everard were listed in the Curia Regis Rolls for Bedfordshire in 1204 and later in the Assize Rolls for Somerset in 1225. A few years later, William Euerrad was listed in the Pipe Rolls for Leicestershire in 1230. Symon Eborard was listed in the Hundredorum Rolls of 1215 in Norfolk. [3]

Eborard or Everard (1083?-1150), was the second bishop of Norwich, whose whole career is involved in a mist of uncertainty. "Till recently it was believed without misgiving that he was the son of Roger, Lord of Belleme. All that we certainly know of Eborard is that he was Archdeacon of Salisbury in 1121." [4]
