Alverton is a hamlet and civil parish in Nottinghamshire, England, part of the Newark and Sherwood District. It is joined by the neighbouring parish of Kilvington to form an area for a parish meeting. It contains 22 houses (source:houses in post codes count) and is surrounded by farmland. The River Devon and its tributary the Winter Beck run along its eastern border. It is in the civil parish of Staunton, Notts.

A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Alverton from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:

"ALVERTON, a hamlet in Kilvington parish, Notts; 7 miles S of Newark. Pop., 40. Houses, 7."

A Vision of Britain through Time states that Alverton became a separate civil parish in 1866. It would appear that it was absorbed into Staunton after the introduction of the Newark and Sherwood District in 1974.
