[from Smith's Directory, 1883]


ANDREAS is an extensive parish in the sheading of Ayre ; bounded on the north by the sea, on the east by Bride, on the south by Lezayre, and on the west by Jurby. It is about six miles in length from north to south, and four and a half miles broad from east to west. The land is mostly low and level, and the inhabitants are chiefly employed in agricultural pursuits. Most of the land is very fertile giving good yields of either cereals or green crops. The village is situated four miles W.N.W. from Ramsey, containing a few scattered houses and shops, and a large parish church capable of accommodating nearly 800 worshippers, dedicated to St. Andrew, from whom the parish derives its name. The living is a rectory in the gift of the Crown, and is held by the Ven, J. C. Moore, Archdeacon of Man.

The chapel of ease (St. Jude), situated at Ballachurry, is a handsome structure, and was erected by subscription in 1841. The living is a perpetual curacy in the gift of the Archdeacon, and worth about £100 per annum. There are also places of worship for the Wesleyans and Primitive Methodists in the parish.
