Underhill's of Warwickshire
« on: Tuesday 19 April 11 20:12 BST (UK) »
Having traced the Underhill side of the family to 1730.
Has anyone any ideal on how to from back into the preceding century's.
Trying to see if there is a connection to Underhill's who were Lord Lieutenants
of the county.
Lot's on the American sideclaiming back to them  but can find no web site
for the English side?

I dont see how they can know he was born c 1730, Tachbrooke, Warwick without a Christening and therefore a Father for him?

Earliest Underhill and variant I can find in Warwick is;
Marriage;
William UNDERILL, Occp Gent
Marie UNDERILL
25 November 1577, Bishops Tachbrook, Warwickshire
(Source FreeREG)

Familysearch Pilot has a few possible Christenings for John c 1730.
And Familysearch.Org has a few Underhill submitted Trees going back to 1522.

My ancestor Richard Whitehead of Baxterley marrried Elizabeth Underhill at Middleton, Warwicks 28 May 1664.  I have this information about the Underhill family at this early date.
"The name Underhill only appears twice in the index to the parish registers of Hints. William Underhill, gent., is witness to the marriage of Edward Wyatt and Elizabeth Bracegirdle of Weeford on Jan 1st 1657. An Ed. Undhill appears in the index but I couldnīt find him. He was doubtless also witness to a marriage.  Of the people concerned many seemed to come from adjoining parishes - Hints was very small."
If anyone can tell me if this is the same family (or ancestors) of those who were Lord Lieutenants of Warwickshire I would be most grateful.  It seems that the Underhills of South Staffs (Tamworth area) may have been armigerous.
Warwicks: Whitehead, Allcock, Atkins, Bayley, Beacham, Bilson, Brooks, Cleaver,Farmer,Gilks, Lucas, Kendall, Oliver, Pickard, Shilton, Underhill.
Lincs: Kendall, Clark, Morley,Vincent, Withers, Barlow,Dawson.
Leics. Vincent
Notts: Bardill, Bugg, Morley, Winfield
Dublin: Brooks, Flood.

Hi GingerVicky,
Bit of a a tricky one here.

Only Birth Reg c 1889 for a Ethel Ada in Warwickshire;
Ethel Ada U YARDLEY, June 1889, Warwick, 6d 594
Ethel Ada MUCKLOW, Dec 1889, Solihull, 6d 531

Now I looked at Trees and they have Ethels Mother as Ada Giles.
Cant find a Marriage for Stephen to her.
They also have Stephen previously Married to a Mary c 1878

There is this Marriage though but not till 1914!
Stephen UNDERHILL/Ada E YARDLEY, June 1914, Coventry, 6d 1464


Other YARDLEY Births FreeBMD
STEPHEN JOHN U 1890
JOSEPH ERNEST U 1892
ARTHUR GEORGE U 1894

I presume the U is for Underhill

Sir Hercules Underhills heir was in the 1700's nephew William Underhill, who was later knighted and married Alice Lucy, daughter of Sir Thomas Lucy.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hercules_Underhill

And this lot back to the 1400's!
"He also left a bequest to his cousin, Valentine, sister of Sir Hercules Underhill of Idlicote"

1891 we have;
Stephan Wiederhold 32
Ada E Wiederhold 22
Ethel A Wiederhold 2
Stephen L Wiederhold 5/12****
If you look at other images on the page, eg a Jane Mitchell the J in her name is the same as the second initial of Stephen Jnr, so the image is Stephen J not L as transcribed.

1901 we have;
Stephen Underhill 42
Ada Underhill 32
Ada Underhill 12
Stephen Underhill 10
Joseph Underhill    8
Arthur Underhill    6
Mildred Underhill    4
Bertha Underhill    1

By the time Arthur comes along I think they have started Reg the Children as UNDERHILL;
ARTHUR 1895
MARTHA MILDRED 1897
BERTHA LILIAN 1900
All Reg Warwick

They Christened JOSEPH ERNEST Underhill 16 April 1893, St Mary, Warwick, Warwickshire
(Familysearch.Org)

But as you can see his Birth was Reg as Yardley :)
