Family History


The name Everett is one of the many variations of the English name Everard, which came from a Germanic given name comprised of the elements ever = wild boar + hard = brave, strong, hardy. The name may be of Norman origin or as a variation of the name Eoforheard. Evered, Everid, Everett, Everitt, Everatt and Averitt are variations. There are numerous cognate forms as well. The addition of the trailing "e" in Everette is a relatively current event dating back only a few generations. In our research we have encountered the forms Everit, Everitt, Everett and Everette.

Our Everett family line originates in colonial Virginia with Daniel Everett who is believed to have been was born about 1670 in Richmond County. Daniel is almost certainly of English descent. By the mid-17th century the British colonization was well underway.

DANIEL EVERETT [1856] was born between 1670 and 1676 in (old) Rappahannock County, Virginia, and died Unknown. He married ANN 'ANNIE' ELMORE about 1691, daughter of  PETER ELMORE and CHARITY BROCK. She was born 28 August 1674 in Farnham Parish (old) Rappahannock County, Virginia and died about 1750, and was of Swiss/French descent. They apparently lived out their lives in Richmond County.

Notes: Daniel's father may have been Thomas and his grandfather may have been Charles Everett born about 1607 in England. Thomas may have had at least two brothers named George and John. Another possibility is that Daniel's father was William Everette who lived on the land of Major Jonathon Weir on the south side of the Rappahannock River. Maj. Weir was granted the 3,000 acres of land 24 Oct 1666 on which he settled 60 people.
