The Everest Surname Project


Are you a descendant of a Viking? If you match the Everest surname DNA, you may be the descendant of the Normans who accompanied William the Conqueror in 1066 when he conquered England. The purpose of the Everest Surname DNA database is to provide supporting evidence for the descent of the Everest surname from Roger Everest, one of two brothers who fought with William the Conqueror at the Battle of Hastings and are listed in the Domesday Book of 1086. They were William d?Evreux (also listed as William of Evreux and as Comte d?Evreux) and Roger d?Evreux, listed as Comte d?Evreux and also as Roger Everest in one English translation of the Domesday Book. The origin of the Everest name began in England with Roger Everest and his arrival in England with his brother William. They were the sons of a second wife of the Archbishop of Rouen and Earl of Evreux which explains their eagerness to accompany William the Conqueror and establish themselves in England.The laws of primogeniture did not look too good for them. Since Everest is a relatively rare name, it would be intriguing to see if the DNA relationships of the owners of this name are still closely linked. The first two men who participated in this EVEREST SURNAME PROJECT are descendants of a George Everest from Maidstone, Kent, England. However, there is a second and perhaps even more important reason to take the DNA test. The results of these first two DNA tests, provide a valid base for testing the Everest surname. The surprising fact is that the test proclaimed both were Vikings. Since the Normans were Vikings from Scandinavia, this strongly suggests that they were indeed descendants of Roger Everest, the only Everest who went on the invasion, survived and received land and was alive 20 years later with descendants. His brother, William, did survive the invastion, but he had no sons who lived and produced sons. His line died out. So if your DNA matches the DNA of these first two contributors, you too are a Viking. And if so, remember that Roger was a cousin of William the Conqueror. Any male with the EVEREST surname is invited to participate in this project
