Everdon is a village and civil parish in the Daventry District of Northamptonshire, England, some 3 miles (4.8 km) south of the town of Daventry. The population of the civil parish at the 2011 UK census was 356.

To the north of Everdon is the hamlet of Little Everdon and to its south lies the shrunken village of Snorscombe.

In the Middle Ages, Everdon Priory was a small Benedictine priory, located at the eastern end of the village, close to a group of fish pools, which are still extant. The manor of Everdon should not be confused with the neighbouring manor of Little Everdon, where the Cluniac monks of Daventry Priory had a mill and land.
