About Capt. Humphrey Underhill

History Of Rye, NY - Chronicle of a Border Town - Westchester County, New York. Including Harrison and White Plains till 1788. by Charles W. Baird NEW YORK. Anson D. F. Randolph and Company No. 770 Broadway 1871.


"Captain Humphrey Underhill was apparently from Stamford, and may have been related to the renowned Captain John, of that place. In 1631 he bought the Vineyard Farm at Rye, from the Sellecks; and in 1698, the town appointed persons to treat with him for land to be approrpiated as a 'parsonage.' As early as 1705 he had a mill on Mamaroneck River, and lived at the White Plains, of which he was one of the patentees in 1722. 'Mr. Underhill,' so called in 1715, was a man of high consideration among his fellow townsmen, who chose him in 1692 for a delicate mission to the government of Connecticut. He was also twice sent as deputy to Hartford during the revolt of the town to Connecticut, 1697-1700. He was living in 1725."
