The Underwood Family Tree goes back over 200 years with the earliest date of birth currently being in the 1700's.

The main part of the tree follows the descendants of John Underwood born at Atworth, Wiltshire in 1794.  He had at least three sons, William Underwood born at Atford, Wiltshire in 1813, and George William Underwood born at Atworth in 1819,  and Joseph Underwood born at Atworth, Wiltshire in 1823.

The earliest members of the family come from Atworth, Wiltshire, England but soon branched out into Dursley, Gloucestershire, and other areas of South West England before moving to London.  They then spread to all other areas of England and can be found in the genealogical records of Bedfordshire, Bristol, Cheshire, Derbyshire, Dorset, Durham, Essex, Gloucester, Hampshire, Herefordshire, Kent, Lancashire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, London, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire, Salford, Somerset, Suffolk, Surrey, Sussex, Teeside, Tyneside,  Wiltshire, Yorkshire.

Our particular Underwood Family Tree has connections not only with England, but also has links with Burma, France, Germany, India, Latvia, Libya, Singapore, USA and Wales.  In some cases family members have been born or died in those countries, but in other instances family members have lived or worked there.

Whilst the male Underwood's have kept the Underwood Family Name alive, their wives, and the female members of the Underwood Family who have married and had children, have created other branches of the family.  The surnames that have links to Underwood Ancestry or Underwood Ancestors include Bates, Brown, Budding, Curtis, Grace, Meakin, Saul, Spencer, Winfield and many others.  This list only includes the top ten surnames connected to the Underwood Family Tree.  There are almost ninety different surnames currently listed, so whatever your surname, you may find you have Underwood Descendants or Underwood Cousins through marriage.
