The rich and ancient history of the Everitt family name dates back to the time of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It comes from the Germanic personal name Eberhard. Everitt 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 Everitt 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.

Everitt Early Origins



The surname Everitt 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.
