William Eusebius Andrews (1773-1837) was a Roman Catholic journalist, and editor of several Catholic journals. This work ran from 1813 to 1820, when he was forced to suspend publication, despite support from Bishop Milner. He revived the journal in 1834, and it was continued after his death. Andrews was also the founder of several other (mainly short lived) Catholic journals, and "The Friends of Civil and Religious Liberty", a tract society.
