Old Photograph Norman Anderson Stationery Shop Brechin Scotland

Old photograph of the Norman Anderson Stationery shop on the High Street in Brechin in Angus, Scotland. In Scotland, the surname Anderson first appeared in records of the 14th century as " Fitz Andreu " meaning son of Andrew, and developed in various forms by the Scottish Gaelic patronymic of " MacGhilleAndrais " which means the servant of St. Andrew. Variations of this name were MacAndrew, Gillanders and Anderson. The name soon migrated to other parts of Scotland due to the popularity of the name " Andrew " as associated with the Patron Saint of Scotland and the largest grouping lies in the north east of Scotland from the Mearns through Aberdeenshire, Banff and Moray.
