The ancient Anglo-Saxon surname Eversen came from the personal names Evot or Everard. The surname Eversen features the common suffix -son, which superseded all other patronymic suffixes as the dominant form during the 14th century and was most common in the north of England.

Eversen Early Origins



The surname Eversen 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.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Eversen or a variant listed above:

  • Barnt Eversen settled in New York in 1658

Eversen Settlers in United States in the 18th Century

  • Martin Eversen settled in Georgia in 1734
  • Martin Eversen, who landed in Georgia in 1735
  • Evert Eversen, who landed in New York, NY in 1749
