Anderson Genealogy & History

Anderson is an Scottish patronymic surname, meaning son of Andrew, derived from the Greek name "Andreas", meaning manly. Andrew is the name of Jesus' first disciple as well as the patron saint of both Russia and Scotland. Anderson family history reputedly dates to ancient Dalriadan clans, and the ancient family seat (feudal manor) was in Strathspey. Anderson genealogy links to MacGhille Andreis, servant to the patron St. Andrew. Variations in name spellings include Andress, Andriss, Enderson, Kendrew, McAndrew. While the first emigrants to America were to New York in 1600, some Scandinavian emigrants may have Americanized their name to Anderson.
