Marabell Underwood Flagg was born circa 1619 in Hardkingham, Norfolk, England to John Underwood (1575-1631) and Rachel Edwards (1586-1650) and died 30 December 1702 Watertown, Middlesex County, Massachusetts of unspecified causes.
Marabelle Underwood at age 20 ran away to Colonial America with her suiter, Thomas Flagg (1621-1698) (probably really only age 16?)
1637 Migration to America
Thomas Flagg sailed for America in 1637 and settled in Watertown. According to Charles A. Flagg of the Library of Congress, "The tradition of Thomas is that he loved a girl in station below his own. Their union was opposed by his family, so the two decided to emigrate, and did so, coming in two vessels which sailed in company, and marrying soon after their arrival. We do not know the maiden name of the wife Mary, nor the date of marriage".[1/18] English emmigration records state, "A Register of persons about to pass into foraigne parts. A.D. 1637. 13 Charles I.
