English and Scottish: from the usual vernacular English form (recorded from the 13th century onward) of the New Testament Greek personal name Andreas . In North America, the English form of the surname has absorbed many cognates from other languages, e.g. Czech Ondřej (see Ondrey ) and Albanian Ndreu , and also their patronymics and other derivatives (see examples at Andrews ).
History: The surname Andrew was first brought to North America from England by Robert Andrew (died 1668), who settled in Boxford, MA.
