ANDREWS, WILLIAM (?–ca. 1840). William Andrews, one of Stephen F. Austin's Old Three Hundred colonists, married Susan Clark on August 20, 1805, in St. Landry Parish, Louisiana. He moved to Texas before December 1821 and received title to a league and a labor of land in what is now Fort Bend County on July 15, 1824. His daughter Martha (Polly), aged fourteen, married Randal Jones on October 12, 1824. Twin daughters were born to the Andrews family on January 7, 1825, but one of them must have died before the census was taken in 1826, for at that time Andrews had with him his wife, four sons, one daughter, and two slaves. He was classified as a farmer and stock raiser aged between forty and fifty. Sometime before the Texas Revolution Andrews sold his league in Fort Bend County and moved to the San Bernard area, where he operated a trading post. A son, Walter, who spelled his name Andrus, was still living in Fort Bend County in 1850. Andrews died before January 10, 1840.
