Where did the German Andriesen family come from? What is the German Andriesen family crest and coat of arms? When did the Andriesen family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Andriesen family history?

Schleswig-Holstein, which is the northernmost state in western Germany, is the homeland of the proud surname Andriesen. The name is derived from the personal name "Andreas" or "Andres," meaning "man" or "manly." German surnames developed at a time when Schleswig, as well as most of the other German provinces, were states of the Holy Roman Empire. At first people used only a single name, but as the population grew and people began to travel, they began to find it necessary to take on an additional name to differentiate themselves. Fairly general principles guided the development of hereditary surnames in Schleswig.

The family branched into many houses, some of which acquired estates and manors throughout the surrounding regions, where they played significant roles in the social and political affairs. From early on, the name was represented by predominantly Danish families, although most of the Schleswig branches and many of the southern Danish branches spoke German.
