Yaverland is a village on the Isle of Wight, England, just north of Sandown. It has about 200 houses. The older part of the village is spread along the road to Bembridge by the Norman Church. The newer part is along the seafront, consisting entirely of a bungalow estate. The name appears to come from a local rendition of "over land" - being the land over the once-tidal causeway.

end of Wikipedia contribution

Yaverland was an ancient parish and a civil parish until 1933 when it was abolished and divided between the civil parishes of Bembridge and Sandown-Shanklin.
