I am trying to find information on this family. I have Thomas Hollingsworth born c. 1801 married to Elizabeth Birch born c1795. Offspring were Penelope b. 1826, Charles b. 1829, Thomas b. 1836 and Mary Anne b. 1831. Also a grandson George Land born 1840.
Thomas Hollingsworth is more than likely a decendent of Valentine Hollingsworth , who was born about june 1632. It is shown by the ancient records of the Society of Friends,in County Armagh,Ireland . He was the son of Henry and Catherine(Cornish)Hollingsworth,of Ballineskcrannell , parish of Segoe , County Armagh, Ireland, who it is believed emigrated from Cheshire, England, where the family was long seated.
