Overview[edit]

Everton is at the junction of the A337 and B3058 roads. It is in the southeast of the parish of Hordle.[1] The village has around 760 houses, the majority having been built since 1970. It also has a village shop, a social club, a garden centre, and a large nursery.[1] It has a church dedicated to Saint Mary which is a daughter church of All Saints, Milford on Sea.[1] The village has one pub called The Crown.[2]

History[edit]

The earliest deeds which mention Everton (c. 1300) spell the name as Yveletona.[3] The name may be equivalent to that of Yeovilton in Somerset, and made up of two elements: "Gifl" - a Brittonic river name, and "ton" - an Anglo-Saxon word for a farm.[4] Subsequent variants of the name include Yelverton, Yeovilton, Evilton, and Evelton.[5]

From the time of Charles II down to the beginning of the 19th century, Everton was home to three notable Catholic families, succeeding each other at Everton House - Steptoe, White, and Lacy.[5] The first Anglican church was erected in 1896, and was constructed mainly from wood and corrugated iron.[6] This was replaced in 1970 with the present timber framed and cedar shingle clad church.[6]

Everton saw some action during World War II. On the 15 October 1940 at 1245 pm, a Messerschmitt Bf 109E-1 was shot down at Everton.[7][8] Less than a year later, at nearby Efford, on July 8 1941 at 0125 am, a Heinkel He 111H-3 was shot down by a Bristol Beaufighter, four crew members were killed, but one member of the crew baled out and was captured by members of the local home guard.[7][9]
