John Underwood was born circa 1750.1

He married Sarah Darby, daughter of Richard Darby and Sarah Peachy, in a Church of England ceremony at St. Peter's on Monday, 12 October 1772 at Roydon, Essex..1 The church has walls of flint and rubble, and probably dates back to at least 1260. Historically, Roydon was a parish of scattered farms and cottages, with open fields and common meadows. There were 105 ratepayers named in 1734, and the population was 667 in 1801. On the north and west, rivers form the parish and county boundaries.2
