Note: N11880 !"Elizabeth Underwood married first Dr. James Taylor. Was he a son of Rev. James Taylor who was associated with the family in Isle of Wight County? He certainly was NOT a kind or faithful husband to her so that she felt compelled to appeal to the Governor and Council for a separation in order that she could return to the home of her mother. The details are such that it would have been impossible for her to have remained with him without being killed or maimed. Before the matter was finally settled the husband obligingly departed this life, according to the first record book of Surrey County. Recorded 26 March 1654. Virginia Genealogies #1, Genealogies of Virginia Families V, Underwood Family of Virginia, page 630. !26 Mar 1654: James Taylor deceased.
