Origins Available: English, German


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 The surname Eversole features the common suffix -son, which superseded all other patronymic suffixes as the dominant form during the 14th century and was most common in the north of England.

Eversole Early Origins



The surname Eversole 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.

Eversole 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 Eversole family name include Everson, Eversen and others.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Eversole surname or a spelling variation of the name include : Captain Everson who settled in Boston in 1763; Matthew Everson settled in Virginia in 1653; Barnt Eversen settled in New York in 1658; Martin Eversen settled in Georgia in 1734..
