Biographical history

The Everard family came from Middleton in Norfolk. They were brewers and merchants in King's Lynn in the eighteenth century, dealing mainly in wine, grain, fish and timber. By the nineteenth century they had become bankers with interests in a range of commercial undertakings. Confusingly, four successive generations of the family were called Edward. Edward Everard I (c 1699-1769) married Mary, daughter of Benjamin Holley, alderman and brewer of King's Lynn, in 1734. His son, Edward II (1739-1819) married in 1760 Mary Barsham, sister of his partner, Samuel Browne, merchant of King's Lynn. His son, Edward III (c 1761-1829) married Dorothy Elsden in 1789, and Sarah Sellen Ellington in 1817. His son Edward IV (c 1794-1764) married Anna Theodora St John in 1822: his only surviving child, Mary Georgina, married Major Thomas Hutton in 1856. The businesses were wound up before the death of Edward Everard IV, the bank being taken over by Messrs Gurney.
