William Andrews (fl. 1656–1683) was an astrologer, known mostly from his books, which were published from 1656 to 1683. The first of these is the Astrological Physician of 1656, to which William Lilly contributed a preface. Among the Ashmolean Museum's manuscripts, there is preserved a letter, dated from Ashdown, Essex, 31 March 1656, in which Andrews thanks Lilly for writing the preface. In 1672 he published Annus Prodigiosus, or the Wonderful Year 1672, and More News from Heaven unto the World, or the Latter Part of the Wonderful Year 1672; being a further Account of the Portents and Signification of the Stars touching the United Netherlands. His last work was An Almanack for 1683.
