I'm descended from Elizabeth Underdown who married Charles Hook in Brenchley. She was the daughter of Thomas Underdown and Elizabeth Vousden, and was baptised 18 Jun 1784.
Could there be any connection?
If you have any information on previous generations of Underdowns, I'd be grateful to receive it.
The info I have is sketchy, but I was told that there were 4 Thomas and Elizabeth Underdowns in Brenchley in the period 1782 - 1806 all producing children - which is confusing, but at least the parson distinguished between them by always quoting the mother's maiden name!
One Thomas Underdown married an Elizabeth Burgess (I know this because we went down the wrong path and thought she was ours!). Just thought you might like to know this in case they belonged to you!
