    Andrews / Ross connection ?

    My family is half Andrews . My family members tell me that Andrews is an offshoot of the Ross clan . Some things I read confirm this while some things I read say that may not the case . Does anyone know which is correct ?

    I thought that Andrews was classed as a Sept of Anderson -

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clan_Anderson

    But, Anderson is an armigerous clan (no current Chief) and is itself considered a sept of Clan Ross.

    No real Ross connection. To some extent, shows how nonsensical the "sept" idea is. See, for example,

    http://www.clanandersonsociety.org/name_history.html

    i.e. Lord Lyon originally recognised a "free-standing" Anderson Clan.
