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.
