Andreas Parish

Is six miles in length from north to south and four and a half in width from east to west; situate in the Ayre sheading, in the northern part of the Island - the parish church being four miles and a half north-west of Ramsey. This parish is principally under cultivation, as it is mostly low or level land; but it comprises no village worthy of description. The church was rebuilt in 1800, and contains seven hundred sittings; the living is a rectory in the gift of the crown and generally held by the archdeacon. Within the edifice is a handsome marble font (in a former age the property of Phillip I. of France) presented to the parish by the late Mr. Corlett. There is also an episcopal chapel in this parish. Near Ballacurry is a quadrangular encampment, generally supposed to have been constructed as a protection against Cromwell's troops during the parliamentary war. An annual fair is held in the parish on the 11th of December.

The Post Town of this parish is Ramsey
