Sandras Early Origins



The surname Sandras was first found in Belgium, where the name became noted for its many branches in the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. The name was first recorded in West Flanders, a province in Belgium, originally Bruges. Within this province the notable towns are Bruges, the capital city, Ostend, Courtrai, Furnes, Thielt, Ypres and Roulers. In their later history the surname became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into a most influential family. Undoubtedly the name was originally of Spanish origin and the first records emerged from the Spanish occupation of the Netherlands until the 16th century. However, records of the origin in Spain are not evident at this time.
