About John Underhill

John Underhill is found first in the MM records of Nottingham, Chester co., Pa., 11-16-1730. The MM had been established in April of that year and the place from which he transferred is not given. On 9-23-1736 he married, 2nd, Ann, widow of Robert Dutton and daughter of William Brown.

His property lay on both sides of the Lower North East Creek, above Gilpin Falls, Cecil co., Md., including the famous old Underhill mill. This plantation of 300 acres he left, by will, to his son Thomas. He bought 250 additional acres from Samuel Edmondson, his son-in-law, which in turn he left, by will, to the four children of his daughter Isabel and husband Samuel Edmondson.

The plantation of John, the immigrant, had passed to his son Thomas who "occupied the original homestead and was noted for the manufacture of cheese to which business the farm had always been devoted, the art having been brought from England.

He was remarkable for retaining the old English habits, manners, dress and speech, always addressing and speaking of his wife as "My Louve". (Records of Nottinghan MM). John's daughters Esther and Isabel, with their husbands, the Edmondsen brothers, were in Union co., SC near their sister Elizabeth, and her husband Henry Clark, in the 1790 census.
