I do know that Osmond Everard of Craven was mentioned in an article on the Family of Everard in the Irish Genealogist 1988. It says "Burke however, considered a Yorkshire Everard to be the ancestor of the Irish Everards, starting the lineage of Everard of Randlestown, Co. Meath, with Martin Everard, son of Hugo and grandson of Osmond of Craven in Yorkshire. Probably it is a case of misinterpretation of the Yorkshire Domesday Book in which indeed Evrard (who had a son Hugh) is mentioned as holding land in Craven. He was however, the founder of the Leathley or Lelay family and not of the Everard family.

The above was written by a namesake of mine (but probbaly no relation) called Richard H.A.J. Everard who is Dutch but descended from Everard's of Ireland.

I am a Leicestershire Everard and as far as know have no connection with Yorkshire but then if Osmond was around in 1066, its rather a long time ago!
