Charles Everett was born in Hackney, London, UK in 1812. In 1842 he married at Hanover Square, London, Rebekah nee Hunt (1812-1882).

Charles and Rebekah emigrated from London to New Zealand on the ship Sir Edward Paget arriving Auckland 25 May 1853.

They had travelled from London with Charles Senior; Charles’ brother Edward Henry Everett (1820-1904) who would become twice Mayor of Nelson, NZ; Edward’s wife Hannah; and Edward and Hannah’s three Canadian-born sons.

Charles and Rebekah settled at Bell Block, New Plymouth whilst Edward and Hannah settled in Nelson, NZ.

During the New Zealand Wars Charles Everett served in the Taranaki Militia attaining the rank of Captain, a commission he held until his death in 1878. He became the only European spared his life after being captured by Maori (refer Papers Past : Death of Captain Everett).

Everett remained in New Plymouth until his death on 13 July 1878. He is buried at Te Henui Cemetery, New Plymouth City.

After his death his widow Rebekah went to live with her late husband's brother and his family in Nelson, NZ. When she died at age 70 on 28 January 1882 her body was returned from Nelson to New Plymouth for burial beside her husband at Te Henui Cemetery.
