Evingten Early Origins



The surname Evingten was first found in Leicestershire at Evington, now an electoral ward and administrative division of the city of Leicester. Up until the 1930s, it was a small village that dated back to the Domesday Book of 1086 where it was first listed as Avintone and literally meant "estate associated with a man called Eafa," from the Old English personal name + "ing" + "tun." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Mills, A.D., Dictionary of English Place-Names. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-19-869156-4)
At that time, it was part of the Gartree wapentake, land held by Hugh de Grandmesnil. There was land enough for 7 ploughs and included a mill and was worth 40 shillings. Another Evington in Gloucestershire was listed as Givingtune at that time was also found in in this reference. This hamlet, now in the parish of Leigh was land held by St Peter of Westminster and was in the Deerhurst hundred. Rather small, it had land enough for 1 hide and 1 virgate and was administered by William fitzBaderon. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Conjecturally, the surname is descended from the tenant of the lands of Evington in Leicestershire where Ivo was under-tenant to Hugh de Grandesnmil. The Lords of Evington are not believed to be related as they were originally Greys who became Lords of Evington in the 13th century.
