Not three, one. Captain Charles Holmes Everett married Pollixfen Calmady and assumed her families surname by act of parliament.

The name in the heading combines three different people

He was the youngest son of Captain Michael Everitt R.N. (d. 13 Sep 1776) and wife nee Elizatbeth Gayton and a nephew of Admirals Clark Gayton & George Gayton. On 19 Feb 1776 he was appointed 2d Lieutenant, HMS Boreas, 6th/28, (ADM 6/21, p.159) which sailed for Jamaica, the station commanded by his uncle VAdm Clark Gayton. On 27 May 1776 VAdm Gayton appointed him Lieutenant & Commander, HM Armed Sloop Racehorse, 12 guns (ADM 6/21, p.461). On 10 July 1776, VAdm Gayton appointed CH Everitt as acting Commander of HMS Atalanta, Sloop,, Commander Thomas Underwood having died the day before (ADM 1/240, 25 July 1776). On 11 Nov 1776 VAdm Gayton promoted CH Everitt to Commander, Badger, a brig ordered to be reestablished from an Armed Brig to a [brig-rigged] Sloop (ADM 6/21, p.293; his older brother, Michael John Everitt was the Lieutenant). On 07 Sep 1777 VAdm Gayton promoted CH Everitt to Captain, HMS Antelope, 4th/50 (Gayton's flagship) and promoted MJ Everitt to command Badger, Sloop (ADM 6/21, pp. 408 & 417, respectively).
This is not the same brig-rigged Badger, Sloop, commanded by Horatio Nelson. Under the command of Michael John Everitt, the crew and stores of one brig-rigged Sloop named Badger to another brig-rigged Sloop newly named Badger without paying off or any other notice than VAdm Gayton's letter to Admiralty (ADM 1/240, pp.454-457) and the log book (ADM 51/78) which was continued and refers simply to the "New Brig." Horatio Nelson superseded MJ Everitt in commanding the "new brig" Badger, Sloop.
