    A descendant of this (Hollingsworth) family, Valentine Hollingsworth, wi th others of like mind, in 1682 brought his family to America to escape t he persecutions of a monarchistic age, for freedom to worship in the w ay of their choice and liberal opportunities of the New World. Here he rea red a large family, of the numerous American branches of his family many d escendants have visited the ancient house and church with hallowed interes t, up to the present day.

    Pages 6 and 7
    From the records of Lurgan Monthly Meeting (Quakers), in Ireland (Pennsylv ania Historical Society), is the following record of the birth of this em igrant ancestor: "Henry Hollingsworth of Balleniskcrannel, in the Pari sh of Segoe and Armagh, and Katheran, his wife, had Valentine Hollingswort h, born at Balleniskcrannel, aforesaid, about the sixth month in the ye ar 1632." (Armagh is about 50 kilometeres south west of Belfast in Northe rn Ireland.)

    His son, Valentine Hollingsworth, was fifty years of age when he came to A merica. Of his life prior to that time, we have little knowledge. We do kn ow, however, that he was one of the early converts to the doctrines of F ox and Penn, and identified himself withteh founders of the Society of Fri ends in Ireland. We also know that he suffered certain of the penalties in flicted at that time upon those who were conspicous in their devotion to t he principles of the new sect. From William Stockdale's "A Great Cry of Op pression", we learn that "Valentine Hollingsworth had taken from him for T ithe, by Thomas Ashbroo, Tithmonger, twnety-nine stooks of Barley and thr ee stooks and half of Oats, all worth one pound one shilling." This w as in 1671. In the following year we have this: "Valentine Hollingsworth f or the tithe by Edward O'Maghan, twenty-six stooks of Barley, value 2 poun ds 18 shillings," etc. In 1673 he was again fined, as he also was in 1674.
