Edward Eversfield (1842-1912)

From Historical Hastings

Edward Maximilian Bethune came into the Eversfield Estate on the death of his uncle, Charles Gilbert Eversfield. Following the death of his mother, Edward took on the surname of Eversfield.

His death was unexpected at Killcrankie House in Scotland where he had gone shooting some days previous. His son bore the middle name of St. Leonards as a means of honouring the town and estate that he inherited. Losing his wife in May of 1905, he had served in the Indian Army in his younger days. Edward was a keen agriculturist, owning a herd of Aberdeen Angus prize cattle and was renowned as a keen shot. He was buried in the family vault in Horsham on the 24th of August 1912[1].
