John Underhill (circa 1597-1672) was a colonial military leader and magistrate. In the 1640s he moved from New England to Flushing, Long Island. After his second marriage, to Elizabeth Feake in the late 1650s, he moved to Oyster Bay, L.I., establishing an estate called Killingworth. Underhill helped the English gain control over New Amsterdam in 1664, became a surveyor of customs for Long Island, and eventually high constable and under-sheriff of North Riding, Yorkshire (L.I.).
