Origins of surname

This name, found originally in both England and Scotland, means 'son of Andrew'.

Early records

The name Anderson first appeared in Jersey church records in St Brelade in 1713, but it was some 50 years later before two families started to become established. Over the next 100 years there were many Anderson baptisms but it is very difficult to link any of the families and it is believed that there was a substantial number of male immigrants.

It is noteworthy that we have been unable to trace any children of nine Anderson marriages recorded between 1712 and 1931.

The one tree we have received is for a family originating in Kent.
