Evringham History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
- Origins Available:
Evringham is a name that first reached England following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Evringham family lived in the East Riding of Yorkshire at Everingham.
Early Origins of the Evringham family
The surname Evringham was first found in Yorkshire at Everingham, a parish, in the union of Pocklington, Holme-Beacon division of the wapentake of Harthill.  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."  By the time of the Domesday Book in 1086 the parish was known Evringham.  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.

Evringham Spelling Variations
The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Evringham has been recorded under many different variations, including Everingham, Everinghame, Evringham, Evringhame, Evingham and many more.

Evringham migration to the United States +
To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Evringhams were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America:
