Evedon is a village in the North Kesteven district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated 2 miles (3.2 km) north-east from the town of Sleaford.

In 1885 Kelly's Directory noted that Evedon was a parish of 1,333 acres (5 km2) and three farms, on heavy soil that produced crops of wheat, oats, beans, barley and turnips, and seeds – small potatoes used as seed stock. Parish population in 1881 was 73, with Murray Finch-Hatton DL JP as sole landowner. The parish was entitled to send children to Sleaford Grammar School, and two to the Free School at Ewerby.[1] The parish register dates from 1599. By 1933 parish land had increased to 1,647 acres (7 km2), with 5 acres of water – population in 1921 was now 81. There were still three farms, with two farm bailiffs, and a dairyman. The nearest money order and telephone office was at Ewerby.[2]

The former civil parish of Evedon was amalgamated in 1931 with that of Ewerby, to form Ewerby and Evedon civil parish .

The parish church, dedicated to Saint Mary, is a Grade II* listed building dating from the 13th century and restored in 1898, and built of limestone.[3][4]

Evedon Manor House, once the seat of the Bertie family, is a Grade II listed 16th-century house built from limestone, with 19th-century alterations.[5][6]
