    Name Meaning

    English: variant of Andrew , with genitival or post-medieval excrescent -s. This is the usual southern English patronymic form, also found in Wales; the Scottish and northern English form is Anderson . In North America, this surname has absorbed various cognates from other languages, e.g. Polish Andrzejewski , Slovenian Andrejčič, Serbian and Croatian Andrić (see Andric ), and Czech Ondráček (see Ondracek ).

    Irish and Scottish: Anglicized form of Scottish Gaelic Mac Aindreis or Irish Mac Aindriú, see McAndrew .

    History: This was a common name among the early settlers in New England. Robert Andrews emigrated in 1635 from Norwich, England, to Ipswich, MA. Even before 1635, one Thomas Andrews is recorded as being established in Hingham. A certain William Andrews was a member of John Davenport's company, which sailed from Boston in 1638 to found the New Haven colony.
