Author and publisher Jesse Ben Andrus/Andros/Andrews has compiled World Wide Web pages that support his Jesse Ben’s History Page, which connects African and European Royalty in an American history setting. An amazing, and uplifting search for lost Royalty in the Americas.

Here is the Andrews/Andrus shield quartered with de Sausmarez part of an ancient family line with connections in America. Edward Andrews/Andrus (America 1639), and Gov. Edward Andros (1674) use green on gold saltire. With the many Andrews families and shields emerging, and (foresite) it was a necessity for Andrews/Andros to adopt the “Chief” argent three mullets sable. The last picture was used as an Official Seal with “Supporters” of the state of Connecticut. Beware! Don’t assume one of these Coat of Arms unless you can pay the College of Arms to register your lineage, or participate in the “Tornament”.

If any of these things are true I’d like to meet Prince Charles, or an emissary on an Island or somewhere, and ask him what does he think about the Andros in America story, and tell him what happened to Andrus in Louisiana was in response to them being noble, and questioning the government when something wasn’t right. I think their stories and souls are crying out to be heard, especially in the old south.

My sincere apologies to the Crown for all the mistakes, and dibble headed ignorance in terms of Royal protocol, and racial sensitivity. Special thanks to Prince Harry who’s web site came through when the animosity started in 2010. It was a very welcomed, important and most honorable statement, and I know your generation is even more tolerant of other races, and I commend all of you.

I ask you; Who is the enemy? Is it other religions or world governments? Misinformed man can be his own worst enemy.

When you get to my age, and you’re related to so many people, a musician, also a veteran of many years, its hard to hate. I do understand that nations hate one another for historical and economic reasons. To dislike events of the past is different from disliking individuals of today. This is a very special year for all, and hopefully the world will realize what Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II contributes in revenue to her country. She gives 85% or more of her income from Real Estate to the Government, which is unheard of with America’s “One Percent”, and she creates an estimated 96 billion pounds a year in tourism. These things reduce taxes on common people, and allow for the growth of their Nation. If New York city made that much from tourism, I don’t think it would “trickle down” to other parts of the country. The money seems to stay around Wall Street insiders.

Charles of Andrew

French Nobility



(Jan. 3, 2012) This Ermine of Brittany/England is part of the royal furs, which the king, queens, and other nobility wore, because of the colder climates. France was ruled also by the Fulks (folks) of Anjou(Andrew),


when the Anjou family asked Charles Martel (714 A.D.) to defend Europe after the (Jihadi) Muurs and Moslems of Arabia, crossed from Spain into France. Let us not forget that Andrew of Hungary, Germany, and Bavaria came to the aid of Charles Martel de Anjou, in order to repel the invaders. It was Charles Martel’s grandson Charlemagne“the Great” who united many kingdoms creating the “Holy” Roman Empire.

Around 1066 it is said that Sir Robert Andrews/Anjou, of Normandy, Knight. came into Denton (Dan-town), England with “William the Conqueror”, and married the daughter and heiress of Sir Robert of Winwick, in the county of Nort-Hammtun or North (Ham-town), a parish lying in the hundreds of “Guiles” burrows (with surnames), on the skirts of that county, upon the borders of Warwickshire. On this march he settled there (Winwick), and this place became the seat of his posterity for many ages. He was succeeded by his son and heir(s).

The French system of apanage is ancient, and was created to keep records, peace and harmony in the royal families. Words like birthright and inheritance, created fear in families, and caused jealousy, envy, and sometimes hatred. These attitudes suppressed the spiritual growth of the royal family, which is why the apanage system was created. 293 princes fighting for “Grand Prince” in Rus Land is why the confederacy collapsed, moving the (Anjou) Athelings and the Eastern Crown of Andrew to Scotland.

Who was this ancestor Sir Robert Andrews (d’Audrieu) of Normandy, and did he use different names or titles that could help us better connect with the family? I’ve played music for so many social affairs and private parties throughout Europe, with many world leaders and royals in attendance in the late 70’s. Had I known any of this history, I would have had more to speak on, and would have taken more interest in the history of the Castles and Estates we’ve performed and visited. I was at the gates of Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, and Ronnie Scott’s jazz club on Frith Street, all in London, as a young man.(20)

Elizabeth Andrews b.1444 was the daughter and co-heir of John Andrews (b1421) of Weston in Norfolk & Elizabeth Stratton. Elizabeth Andrews was an ancestor of King Edward I. She married first Baron Thomas de Windsor and had a son, Andrew Windsor who was summoned to Parliament as Baron Windsor in 31 Henry VIII. She married second Sir Robert de Lytton, KB. This may explain why Edmund was always close to Queen Elizabeth I.

In 1543 Judith de Sausmarez of Guernsey married John Andrews/(Andros), of Charwelton, Northumberland, (John) whose ancestry can be traced back through 11 generations to Henry de Grey, (Elizabeth Poultney) through Richard’s brother Jean, and many generations beyond that to the first Dukes of Normandy and other members of English and French nobility prior to 1000 AD. (John Andrews certificate is from the family of Ralph Andrews of “Grays Inn”, son of Thomas Andrews, family of Sir Robert Andrews 1066.) Guillaume d’Audrieu (Battle Abbey Roll) and Robert d’Audrieu/Andrews

(Veterans Day 2011) In 1417, Henry V proclaimed the first criminal law in heraldic law: he outlawed the practice of assuming coats of arms Sir Jesse “de Sausmarez” Andros, descendant of Sir Robert Andrews 1066 (2002 – 2010) exile.

The proclamation also empowered the Sheriffs or other representatives of the king to deface the malefactor’s coat of arms, wherever it may have been-on his banner, his shield, or other chattels (like cars and business). The proclamation was related to the practice of heraldic visitations (Invisible College), which, though its earliest records date from the reign of Edward IV (the Black Prince), probably goes as far back as the reign of Henry V.

Heraldic visitations were made by the heads of the king’s heraldic establishment, the College of Arms, which was only formally organized in the reign of Richard III. However, the seeds had been sown years before. England was divided into “provinces,” similar to the archdiocesan division of England, with Norroy in the North, starting at the Trent, and Clarenceux south of the Trent(on)

The king’s chief heralds, called the Kings of Arms, were usually given the name of a province or one of his dominions… paramount King of Arms and had special duties towards the (Knights of the Garter), and were required by oaths dating from the reign of Henry V to take a survey of “all the armigers” in their provinces, which came to be called visitations, after the ecclesiastical inspections.

Usually, a visitation was preceded by a royal writ to the Sheriff of the shire in which the king of arms, or his chosen representative, usually one of the king’s lesser heralds, was to visit. The writ ordered the sheriff, or his subordinates, to give the visitor a “list” of all the men who used coats of arms, or who styled themselves (gentlemen), in the shire. Once the visitor arrived at the shire (town), he got “the list of gentry“, and either visited the gentry in their own houses, or had them summoned to the chief town in their wapentake.

When the (invisible) visitor had met the gentry, he asked them to “prove their right”, either by grant or demonstrating ancient use (that is, use since time out of mind), to the coats of arms that they used. Since grants of coats of arms were fairly uncommon, as they were a display of Royal favor, most gentlemen proved their rights by demonstrating ancient use, usually by displaying old sealed documents, stained glass, or other church monuments. If one could not prove his right to use a coat of arms, he was forced to disclaim his rights, and whatever bore this illegitimate coat of arms had to have it removed or defaced.

The Kings of Arms were also required to “know the family ties” of the gentlemen in their provinces, in order to cadence and quarter their coats of arms properly, and so, after proving their right to their coats of arms, the gentlemen stated their genealogy, as far back “as they could”. (Sir Anthony (Kt.) and family members)

My father was called Bute (Andrus), The Stewarts here in this story are the Stuarts of Bute, and family of Andrus. Uncles Jesse, Edward, and my aunts Putney, Irene, and Linda are all a part of the Stewarts of Bute, Scotlands move to Putney, England.

(Wikipedia “Bute”) This John Stewart(1360) was granted the lands of Bute, Arran and Cumbrae by his father. (King Robert II and Moira Leitch) He was known as the “Black” Stewart’ because of his dark complexion,… his brother was John Stewart of DunDonald, known as the “Red” Stewart. The grant of lands was confirmed in 1400 by a charter of Robert III… About 1385, John Stewart of Bute was granted the hereditary office of (Viscount) Sheriff of Bute by his father King Robert II “Stewart” of Scotland.

(Wikipedia “Putney”)King Charles II reviewed his forces on Putney Heath in 1684; in May, 1767, George III reviewed the Guards, and the Surrey Volunteers at the same spot in 1799.[9] According to Samuel Pepys, Charles II and his brother, the Duke of York used to run horses here. A stone and brick (Egyptian) obelisk was erected on Putney Heath in 1770…

“Now we see why Sir Edmond Andrus was the most controversial Royal Governor in American history. In the midst of all races, he was trusted by the most powerful kings and queens, because they knew he had true love for all people, including the indigenous people. He was governor of New Ham(p)shire, Maine, Massachusetts, (New England), Rhode Island, Connecticut, (New) York, (New) Jersey, Maryland, Virginia, British Virgin Islands, Guernsey, Sark and Alderney in the British Channel Islands. He was the brother in law of Lord William Craven of North Carolina and family of de Haviland and Carteret of (New) Jersey. His family is filled with many spiritual, controversial, philanthropic, charitable, and blessed world leaders in history.

“Some sites are controversial and have to be studied for their merit and truth. The authors views on race relations, history, and other issues are not my own, and only an insight into opposing views on (popular history.)”

“All races in America need to have informed reliable sources for their information and misinformation. Let us as men and women choose what to believe, when confronted with these historical questions. Many black and white people in America have been taught to hate the Royal Governors(1776)and Kings, because they feel no sovereign (so far away) should be able to control or tax them. We don’t hear the other side of the story, here in America, and no one knew that they would invent jet planes, telephones, computers, or the Andro. Now we’re back to 1776 with regards to taxes. Is the U.S. Government indebted to other countries?”

“No one should be dumbfounded by the fact these Web Sites have priority according to the web corporations involved, and not I. Even if I had no Lady Andros blood in me, and had lost in the “tournament”, I know that many, many people will benefit from my story, and our children will find each other, and communicate with a new found respect, and love for education and history.” Jesse Ben Andrus

 Jesse Andrus “Seigneury of Sausmarez” by Jesse Andrus on Myspace

The Channel Islands are not part of the United Kingdom. They are dependent territories of the English Crown, as successor to the Dukes of Normandy, they have “ancient” special relations with the Crown.

The most prominent seigneury to date is the “Seigneury of Sausmarez”, which remains the “first” of the 12 seigneuries from the 13th century to pay homage to the Queen, or her representative in official ceremonys.

The prominent names in this story from Guernsey, Jersey, Alderny, and Sark in the Channel Islands include the original “Pirates of the Caribbean” John Andros/Sausmarez, Thomas Andros, Amias Andros/SauMarez, Charles Andros, Edmund Andros, Phillip and James Saumarez, Thomas Andros de la Rue 1st Baronet, and a host of influential relatives through marriage.
