Andalon Surname History
The first documents where we see the Andalon surname appear in the early to mid-1600s through the late 1700s in the archives of the following northern municipalities of Spain: Montemayor de Pililla, Valladolid; Pembes, Santander; Mogrovejo, Santander; and Pamplona, Navarra. In the early to mid-1700s and through the 1800s, we begin seeing the family name Andalon in the Americas, specifically in records pertaining to the inhabitants of western territories colonized by the Spaniards that eventually became municipalities of Mexico, including: Jalostotitlan, Jalisco; Encarnacion de Diaz, Jalisco; Ameca, Jalisco; Guadalajara, Jalisco; Teuchitlan, Jalisco; Tequila, Jalisco; and Ahualulco de Mercado, Jalisco. While not as prevalent as in the State of Jalisco, the family name Andalon also appears in the archival records of these neighboring Mexican States: Nayarit, Aguascalientes, and San Luis Potosi.
During the mid-1800s, the family name Andalon also begins appearing in official Mexican populace governmental records; that is, in non-church records. Complementing existing church archives relating to marriages, baptisms, burials, and parishioners, etc., these civil records denote births, parental and other family member data, places of residence, and other census-related vital statistics.
In the United States, primarily in the Southwestern States of California and Texas, the last name Andalon appears in U.S. Census and Immigration Records from the late 1800s and early to mid-1900s. During this time, we begin seeing individuals with the Andalon family name being born in the U.S., as well as in official records of U.S. - Mexico Immigrant Border Crossings.
As has been the case for nearly 300 years, we see individuals with the family name Andalon primarily in the Central-West Mexican State of Jalisco, and for about a period of 100 years in the Southwestern region of the United States, namely in the States of California and Texas. While not prevalent outside these geographic areas, individuals with the last name Andalon do live in other regions of the U.S. and Mexico.
