Some researchers think Henry was born in Ireland , England , or even Scotland .  Henry was listed in an English militia (as Hen Hollinworth) and could have
 gone as a member of the Ulster Plantation & Ulster-Scots to Ireland.

 This activity was arranged by the CROWN and the "undertakers" or landed gentry between 1609 - 1630 for the sole purpose of taking (stealing) the land from the Irish using any means
 such as murder and starvation.  Henry is listed in the 1630 muster roll for Onealland Barony, Ulster Plantation in County Armagh.


John Hollingsworth ..John..of Giles...Valentine ,  has my sincere thanks and gratitude for finding Valentine's true IRISH official seal on his 2005 trip to Belfast PRNOI. 
In Ireland the Stag was one of the most ancient of charges and was regarded as the most handsome. The Stag represents the very ancestors of the Celtic race.

Hollingsworth COA Ring

Compliments of Daniel S. Hollingsworth,
Waco, TX         (
I took the image of our COA to a jeweler and had a ring made of it and thought you would like a pic to show on the site....
 He now has a mold of our Family COA and if anyone else is interested in  a piece, he would be happy to help, I'm sure..... Daniel
