ANDREAS, or Kirk-Andreas, a village and a parish in the Isle of Man. The village stands 5¼ miles NW of Ramsey; and has a post office of the name of Kirk Andreas, under Douglas. Fairs are held on St. An drew's and St. John's days. Pop., 76. Pop. of the parish, 1,955. Houses, 372. The land is very fertile. ...


Many barrows and a camp occur near Ballacurry. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Sodor and Man. Value, £750.* Patron, the Crown. The church was rebuilt in 1802, on the site of a preceding one which was the oldest in the island; and it has an ancient marble font, which belonged to Philip I. of France. Two runic monuments are in the churchyard. St. Jude's p. curacy is a separate benefice, of the value of £100,* in the patron age of the Archdeacon.
