"I have an approximate year of birth and death for Valentine Hollingsworth taken from a book from the 1800's self-published by one of my Quaker ancestors. My mother has the book in her possession; I have information copied from it.

Valentine was born ca. 1632 and died ca. 1711. Interestingly, we have the exact date of his marriage to Ann Ree (April 7, 1655). She died Feb. 1, 1671. He married Ann Calvert on April 12, 1672, and she died in 1691."

land, came from Belfast, Ireland, in 1682, and settled in
New Castle County, near the Brandywine. His first wife
was Catharine Cornish, daughter of Henry Cornish, high
sherifi' of London, who was unjustly executed during the
reign of James II. His second wife, Ann, was a Calvert,
and probably related to the proprietaries of Maryland. The
children of the first wife appear to have been Thomas, b.
about 1660; Henry, b. about 1662; Catharine, b. about
1664, m. George Robinson; Mary, b. about 1666, Tn.
Thomas Conway, who died 7, 17, 1689, and in 1693 she
