Early Origins of the Anddrais family
The surname Anddrais was first found in Provence, where the family has held a family seat
since ancient times.
During the Middle Ages several members of the family distinguished themselves through their contribution to the community in which they lived, and they were rewarded accordingly, thus rendering the name more illustrious. Several provinces claim to have been the seat of these great noble families, such as, Provence, Languedoc, Brittany, as well as, Lorraine, Auvergne, Normandy, Périgord, Dauphiné, and the City of Paris, to list a few.
Some of these families have a seat in two different provinces such as the André de Villerin, of Brittany and Provence, and the barons André of Dauphiné and Brittany. Some also trace the name to a small village called Andrest, in the Hautes Pyrénées. CITATION[CLOSE]
