The name Evertant first arose amongst the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is derived from their having lived in one of the places called Everton in the counties of Bedfordshire, Lancashire and Nottinghamshire. The surname Evertant belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Evertant Early Origins



The surname Evertant was first found in Lancashire, but other locals are quite possible as the name is derived from the Old English "eofor" + "tun" which meant "farmstead where the wild boars are seen." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Understandably this Old English expression could apply to many locals. Nevertheless, the name has two quite distinct entries in the Domesday Book of 1086: Eureton in Bedfordshire; Evreton in Nottinghamshire; and Everdone in Northamptonshire. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Evertant arrived in North America very early: James Everton who arrived in New Orleans in 1823; Julia Everton arrived in Boston in 1850; Harnet Everton settled in Nantucket in 1823.
