MCANDREW Family History

This interesting surname is a Scottish patronymic of Andrew, which is of English origin, and is derived from the personal name, which, itself comes from the Greek personal name "Andreas", meaning manly. The first of Jesus Christ's disciples was known by this name. The personal name was first recorded as "Andreas" in the Domesday Book of 1086, and in Scotland it was first recorded as "Andreas" in 1242. The surname M'Andrew was first recorded in Scotland in 1502 with one Donald Makandro, in Kilravock. The surname development since 1395 (see below) includes the following: Wielelmus Andro (1399, Edinburgh), Malcon Andree (1511, Aberdeen), Makallum MacAndro (1550, Murthlac), Dowgall Mc Andro (1613, Stuckvullige), Thomas McAndrew (1618, Inverness) and John M'Andrie (1675, Blachaig)...
