Notes
a. Note:   re [1868 - 1872]. His father's house, where he was raised, was about half a block south of the railway station at Tipton, and probably looks today as it did them. As a young man Frederick undertook medical studies at Edinburgh, earning his LRCP in 1881, FRCS in 1884 and DPH [ Public Health] in 1897.
  Frederick moved from Tipton to Mission BC in 1894 and set up a medical practise there. His territory, however, extended up the Fraser Canyon along the old Caribou Wagon Road for some distance. He served the medical needs of this big area by "horse and rib". Anecdotes from the Vancouver Archives tell of Dr Underhill 'riding shotgun' on some of his stage trips back from Barkerville.
  In 1894 the family was flooded out by the great Fraser flood of that year, and Dr U returned alone to Edinburgh to complete graduate work in Public Health.
  He returned to Canada and moved to Vancouver where he raised his family in his West End home, - Broughton and Barkley - [known by the children as "The City Jail" because of the bars over the upstairs windows]. Frederick, in 1904 became the first Medical Health Officer of the young city of Vancouver. He was beloved in that position, and was active in that role until his death.
  Note: The spelling of "Frederick" is from Arthur Underhill's Genealogy; the Registry of Birth for Frederic Clare [FTU's son] shows FTU as 'Frederic' all newspaper articles from the early days of Vancouver refer to FTU as 'Frederick'
Note:   Frederick Theodore was born and raised in Tipton and educated at Aldenham School, Hertfordshi
