Early Origins of the Everinghen family
The surname Everinghen was first found in Yorkshire at Everingham, a parish, in the union of Pocklington, Holme-Beacon division of the wapentake of Harthill.  This ancient Saxon village was originally listed as Yferingaham c. 972 and literally meant "homestead of the family or followers of a man called Eofor," from the Old English personal name + "-inga" + "ham."  By the time of the Domesday Book in 1086 the parish was known Evringham.  There is early record of a Thomas de Everingham (b. circa 1150) of Everingham, Yorkshire. A few years later the Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 listed Adam de Everingham in Nottinghamshire.

Everinghen Spelling Variations

The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Everingham, Everinghame, Evringham, Evringhame, Evingham and many more.

Migration of the Everinghen family
Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Everinghen or a variant listed above: Jeremie Everingha, who was recorded in Virginia in 1671; Henry Evringham who landed in North America in 1750; James Evringham, born circa 1760 in New Jersey, was a British loyalist, whose oath of allegiance was recorded in Canada in 1796.
