In Reply to: looking for information on orgin of name by Marie C McAndrew of 467

The Irish name Mcandrew appears to be derived from the son (Mac) of Andrew of the Barrett's of the cantred of the Bac and Glen, Barony of Tirawley, Co. Mayo. The Barrett's ruled the Bac and Glen as part of the Norman invasion of Ireland in the 13th cent. The Barrett's seem to be descendants from William Fionn of Kilcommon (c. early 13th cent.). In the 14th cent., the Barrett's broke up into many clans, one being caln Andriu, descendants of a Sir Maigiu. In the 16th and 17th cent., the MacAndrew's held much land in the Bacs.
