The name Evringhame reached English shores for the first time with the ancestors of the Evringhame family as they migrated following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Evringhame family lived in the East Riding of Yorkshire at Everingham.

Evringhame Spelling Variations



Before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Sound was what guided spelling in the Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Evringhame family name include Everingham, Everinghame, Evringham, Evringhame, Evingham and many more.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Evringhame family to immigrate North America: 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.
