The mother of Capt. John Underhill was a widow living in Holland in 1618, and it should be conceded that he was residing there with her at that time, but no authentic evidence is found concerning him until Nov.28, 1628, on which date the Betrothal Records of Gorinchem and the Hague testify to his betrothal to Heylken, daughter of Willem de Hooch of the former place and in each entry he is described as a Cadet in the Guard of the Prince of Orange. As a sequel to those entries, the marriage of the couple on December 12, 1628, is recorded in the records of the Kloosterkerk at The Hague. He makes one other appearance in the Dutch records there on Feb.26, 1630, when he signs a document stating his acceptance of the division of his wife's father's estate.

In 1658 his first wife, Helena, died there and there has recently been erected to her memory a small slate stone, to harmonize with those of the pioneers still standing in the Presbyterian Cemetery in that place. * (see notation regarding this passage at the end) Early in the following year he married Elizabeth, daughter of Lieut. Robert and Elizabeth (Fownes-Winthrop) Feake, and sold his property in Southold on April 1st to Thomas Moore.
