Underwood Genealogy & History

Underwood is an English and Scottish name, describing someone who lived near a forest, derived from Old English "under" meaning below and "wuda" meaning a wood. There were also villages named Underwood in England in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, and in Scotland in Ayrshire, so the name could also describe someone who had lived in an Underwood village. The Underwood family history in England dates back to feudal times when they owned a feudal manor in Derbyshire. The family motto, "Omnes arbusta juvant," means "Groves [underwood] delight all men." Underwood genealogy in America began in the 1630s in Massachusetts and Virginia.
