Date: 1610, Hampsworth, Hampshire, England, United Kingdom. This place is based on a misplacement. See the section on Immigration below.
May have come in the Hector with Davenport and Eaton and Company.
Some believe he came in the James of London (Wm. Cooper, Master), a native of Hampsworth, England, shipped 6 April 1635, from Hampton, England, with 53 others, many who had wife and children with them.
This of course contradicts the belief by Savage and others that he came in the Hector. If he came in 1635, where was he in between? Anderson states that the William Andrews, who came in 1635, "cannot be connected with records for any of the men by that name in early New England."
(1) Before he came to New Haven _________, who died 3 Jan 1663 in New Haven.
(2) 7 Dec 1665, in New Haven, Ann, daughter of Edmund Tapp of Milford, and widow of William Gibbard. She died 1701.
Sergeant William Andrews died 4 Mar 1675/6, recorded in New Haven, New Haven County, Connecticut Colony, America. His inventory was taken June 1676 and was valued at £367:17:00. No children were listed in the abstract.
Savage states that William died 3 Jan. 1664, but this is clearly incorrect, since the New Haven Vital Records confirm the Fam. of Ancient New Haven date.
WILLIAM, was a prominant man. He was of the twelve, who chose the seven pillars.He signed the fundamental Agreement in 1639. It is believed he accompanied Gov. Eaton on the Hector. He, no doubt, was first at Boston or Charlestown, but went to New Haven shortly, where he was active in military service and kept the ordinary. He was a founder of church. He had William, and Samuel, perhaps b. in Eng., and Nathan,(bapt. at N. H. 17 Nov. 1639). He also had Jane, not mentioned by Savage, but listed in Families of Ancient New Haven.
