The history of the Eversden name began with the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from the personal names Evot or Everard. The surname Eversden features the common suffix -son, which superseded all other patronymic suffixes as the dominant form during the 14th century and was most common in the north of England.

Eversden Early Origins



The surname Eversden was first found in Yorkshire 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.

Eversden Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Eversden family name include Everson, Eversen and others.
