Families covered: Andrews of Denton, Andrewes in /of Hexham, Andrews of Winwick

(1) The upper & middle secions below were first launched on a Temporary page. They were moved here after review led to acceptance that there was little chance of our making a significant improvement to it in the near future and that they were 'good enough' to be promoted into the main database.
(2) The following section is provided 'for interest' for we note that we view it with suspicion not least because the claim that the following Sir Robert "came into England with William the Conqueror", and indeed much of the rest of it, has the look of being somewhat contrived.
Sir Robert Andrews of Normandy (a 1066)
m. _ Winwick (dau/heir of Sir Robert Winwick of Winwick)
1. Sir Robert Andrews of Winwick, Northamptonshire
  m. _ Brewer (dau of Sir Marten Brewer)
  A. Sir John Andrews of Winwick
  m. _ Norton (dau of Sir John Norton)
  i. Sir Thomas Andrews of Winwick
  m. _ Cortney (dau of Sir John Cortney)
  a. Sir Thomas Andrews of Winwick
  m. ?? (dau of Lord Breasey)
  (1) George Andrews of Winwick
  m. ?? (dau/heir of the Baron of Burford (Cornewall??))
(A) George Andrews had issue
  George's posterity "flourished at this place for several descents; and a branch of this family settld as Bolston, by marrying and heiress, from whom descended Richard Andrews, Esq; of Earlscoln, in Essex, and of Bromley, in Middlesex. This Gentleman was the twenty-fourth generation of this family."
  (B) Thomas Andrews
  m. ?? (dau/heir of Denton ("now called Doddington" in Northamptonshire)
  (i) Thomas Andrews
  Wotton reports that Thomas was ancestor "after several generations" of Sir William Andrews of Denton, 1st Bart (b after 1618?) - see below.
  b. John Andrews of Mamuell, Warwickshire had issue
  m. Mary Mamuell (dau/heir of _ Mamuell of Mamuell)



BEB1841 identifies the following William as "a lineal descendant of Thomas Andrews, esq. a younger son of the family of Andrews, of Winwick, in Northamptonshire, who acquired by marriage the estate of Denton". Wotton supports such a view but, as reported above, we view that claim with suspicion. The continuation shows possible parents for the 1st Baronet but we have not seen William shown elsewhere as their child (a John is shown as heir apparent in 1618 in a Visitation in that year). Also, the fact (reported by both BEB1841 & TCB) that William had 3 sons who were killed at the battle of Worcester (03.09.1651), which we presume means that the youngest must have been aged at least (say) 13 by then so their father must have been aged at least (say) 31 and so born by 1620, makes it 'tight but not impossible' that Sir William was indeed son of those possible parents.
Sir William Andrews or Andrew of Denton (or Deinton alias Little Doddington, Northamptonshire), 1st Bart (b after 1618?, d by 1649)
