The Evesson family name is linked to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name comes from the baptismal name Ivar, derived from the Old French name Ivar, which arrived in England shortly after the Norman Conquest of 1066. The surname Evesson was also derived from the Saint Ives, whose name was also found as St. Ives in Huntingdonshire.

Evesson Early Origins



The surname Evesson 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.

Evesson Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Evesson include Iveson, Iverson, Ivison and others.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Evesson were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: Richard and Thomas Iveson settled in Barbados in 1635; another Richard Iveson settled in St. Christopher in 1635.
