Spelling variations in names were a common occurrence in the eras before English spelling was standardized a few hundred years ago. In the Middle Ages, even the literate regularly changed the spellings of their names as the English language incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other European languages. Many variations of the name Evingham have been found, including Everingham, Everinghame, Evringham, Evringhame, Evingham and many more.

First found in Yorkshire at Everingham, a parish, in the union of Pocklington, Holme-Beacon division of the wapentake of Harthill. [1] This ancient Saxon village was originally listed as Yferingaham c. 972 and literally meant "homestead of the family or followers of a man called Eofor," from the Old English personal name + "-inga" + "ham." [2] By the time of the Domesday Book in 1086 the parish was known Evringham. [3] There is early record of a Thomas de Everingham (b. circa 1150) of Everingham, Yorkshire. A few years later the Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 listed Adam de Everingham in Nottinghamshire. [4]

For many English families, the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. For such families, the shores of Ireland, Australia, and the New World beckoned. They left their homeland at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. Many arrived after the long voyage sick, starving, and without a penny. But even those were greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. Numerous English settlers who arrived in the United States and Canada at this time went on to make important contributions to the developing cultures of those countries. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Evingham were among those contributors: Jeremie Everingha, who was recorded in Virginia in 1671; Henry Evringham who landed in North America in 1750; James Evringham, born circa 1760 in New Jersey, was a British loyalist, whose oath of allegiance was recorded in Canada in 1796.
