Old Daniel (1730-1811) might be the very same person memorialized and semi-fictionalized in the often told tale of the sailor who ran away with "Lady Spottiswoode". She was disowned by her father and was quite a love story for its time.

Daniel's death is registered in the Parish of Killena, but believed to be buried in the Old Ballycanew Church Yard.

On May 23, 1798 the Rebellion broke out in County Wexford. A few days after, Ballycanew village was taken by the rebels under the Guidance of Rev. Michael Murphy, Roman Catholic Priest who had served that village and used his chapel for seditious meetings for years. At the battle of Arklow on 9th June, it is said that his head was taken off by an English cannon ball. The shops, houses and farm properties of most of the Protestants in the parish were looted or destroyed. Some of the more helpless residents were shot or otherwise murdered in a most fiendish manner. Luckily, Thomas Hollingsworth escaped, though it is not known how, exactly, unles he fled to Dublin as did many.

Thomas is buried in the old churchyard of the adjoining parish of Ballycanew and rests there along with his parents, an uncle, and all of his brothers.

Thomas married Alice Oakes daughter of William Oakes and Mary Rawson in 1769 in Ballycanew or Monomolin Church. Alice was born in 1752 in Curraghtubbin, Monomolin, County Wexford. She died on 18 Jul 1834 in Tomduff, Killenagh Parish, Co Wexford.

Alice is buried beside her husband, Thomas Hollingsworth in the Ballycanew Churchyard with a great slab marking their resting place about 6 feet by 3 feet and 6 inches thick, bears the following shallow-cut inscription:

Beneath this stone lieth the remains of Thomas Hollingsworth of Tomduff, who departed this life 7 June 1822 aged 82 years. Also his wife Alice (Allis incorrectly on stone), departed this life 18 Jul 1834 at 82 years.

They had the following children:

+ 246 F i Jane Pielow was born in 1781. She died on 28 Nov 1837.

152. John Hollingsworth Jr. (John , Thomas , Thomas , Henry ) was born in 1748 in Ballinakill, Ballycanew. He died on 9 Apr 1804 in Ballycanew, Ireland.

A deed made after John's death dated December 4, 1792, Number 300286, which settles property on John Hollingsworth Jr., Ballycanew, shopkeeper, as his father's executor, as due from debts, is witnessed by Thomas Pielow, John Robinson, Dublin, William Hollingsworth, Cranacrower and Nicholas Hollingsworth, County Wexford farmer.

The last record of John before burial is to be found in the state papers. He filed two petitions for losses due to the ravages of the Rebellion. The first filed 8 Oct 1798, claimed losses of provisions, household and shop goods to the amount of 83:3:9d. The second filed 9 Nov of the same year for losses of car (cart or wagon), furniture and apparel, being nine pages long.

Descendants say that he served in the War of 1812 and was killed or died in service in 1812. This is still to be proven.

John was shopkeeper and the second son of John and Elizabeth Hollingsworth of Ballinakill. He was raised at Ballinakill and probably educated by private tutors, the usual method of the wealthy Protestant farmers of the time, and was quite educated for his time.

The abode of his widow, Elizabeth, given in the entry of her burial was Bracana (Bracanagh) which was next to Cranacrower. She possibly went to dwell with her brother-in-law William Hollingsworth, who lived at Cranacrower.

John married Elizabeth Roe daughter of Peter Roe and Mary Gowan on 29 Sep 1781 in Ballinaclare,Toome Parish Church, County Wexford. Elizabeth was born about 1760 in Bracana, County Wexford. She died on 18 Aug 1805 in Ballycanew, Cty Wexford, Ireland. She was buried in Ballycanew Church Yard.

  254 F ii Elizabeth Robinson was born in 1783 in County Wexford, Ireland. She died in Alive 24 March 1803.

154. William Hollingsworth (John , Thomas , Thomas , Henry ) was born in 1752 in Ballinakill, County Wexford, Ireland. He died on 19 Mar 1827 in Cranacrower, County Wexford.

William Hollingsworth became heir to a full third of the "lands of Clonard or Great Fowkestown, County Dublin", by right of his wife, from his father-in-law, John Jones, who was possibly murdered in the Rebellion of 1798. He divided it upon the his three daughters, Martha, Susanna and Jane.

William was of Brackernagh and Cranacrower, Ballycanew and a gentleman farmer.

Between 1799-1824 William is listed in the Vestry Minutes along with his brother and cousins. On 11 Jan 1819 at a Vestry meeting John Hollingsworth was given a pew on North side of the altar, William and Nicholas Hollingsworth received pews on South side of the altar, John Hollingsworth and Nicholas Hollingsworth were present.

William married Elizabeth Jones [scrapbook] daughter of John Jones before 1780. Elizabeth was born in 1753 in Abbeybrenny, Clongeen Parish, Co. Wexford. She died on 7 Feb 1805 in Cranacrower, County Wexford. She was buried in Old Ballycanew Protestant churchyard.

157. Elizabeth Hollingsworth (John , Thomas , Thomas , Henry ) was born about 1760. She died in Boley, Ballycanew.

Elizabeth married Edward Burbridge in 1779. Edward was born in County Wexford, Ireland.

They had the following children:

  261 M i John Burbridge was born in Alive in 1803.

158. Nicholas Henry Hollingsworth Link Donald Page [scrapbook] (John , Thomas , Thomas , Henry ) was born in 1762 in Ballinakill, County Wexford, Ireland. He died on 20 Jan 1826 in Ballycanew, Ireland. He was buried in Old Ballycanew Church.

In Hollingsworth Register articles in Vol 4, pp.87-89 and 5 pp 156-161, this writer (Harry Hollingsworth) asserted that Nicholas Hollingsworth of Ballcanew townland, farmer, was possibly the son of John Hollingsworth of Ballinakill (1713-1791). John's will did not name a son Nicholas, but did mention a "nephew Hollingsworth". Further investigation - still without proof - indicates Nicholas was son of Samuel Hollingsworth of Coolookbeg, brother of John in the Arklow Family. The fact that he and his brother Abraham were not mentioned in the will could have been an error and accidentally omitted by a genealogist Sir William Betham when he made abstracts of about 37,000 Irish Prerogative Wills that were destroyed in 1922.

Nicholas was possessor of a lease on a 53 acre farm on the townland of Ballycanew. This townland lies in about the north east part of the Civil Parish of the same name. The village of Ballycanew is seated upon the south eastern edge of the townland. The farm was the largest singly leased piece of ground in the townland.

Nicholas served in the Camolin Yeomanry Cavalry during the 1798 Rebellion, but was discharged later for neglect of duty. (Ed. TJH) I like to think the "neglect of duty" was based on the fact he would not do the horrible things to his fellow man that was being done at the time by both sides of the Rebellion. Also charged at the same time as Nicholas were two good friends and most likely relatives, Benjamin and John Tackaberry.

17 April 1786 Nicholas Hollingsworth and his brother John Hollingsworth attended the vestry meeting and voted to appoint two members as Church Wardens for the present year.

15 May 1786 Nicholas Hollingsworth signed the minute as Church Warden at the vestry.

Signed by John Hollingsworth

Nicholas married Mary Rathwell about 1777 in Ballycanew, Ireland. Mary was born in 1762. She died on 26 Oct 1835 in Ballycanew, Ireland.

Mary was still living on the farm in 1833, seven years after Nicholas's death. Mary's maiden name has not been proven and Harry Hollingsworth believed it could have been "Jones" or "Tackaberry", and not Rathwell.

Nicholas and Mary had the following children:

  262 M i John Hollingsworth [scrapbook] was born in 1778 in Ballinakill, County Wexford, Ireland. He died in Apr 1804 in Ballycanew, County Wexford. He was buried on 9 Apr 1804 in Ballycanew, Cty Wexford, Ireland.

  269 M viii Frederick Hollingsworth was born in 1798. He died on 23 Jun 1834 in Ballycanew, County Wexford.

+ 272 M xi Thomas Hollingsworth was born in May 1804. He died on 7 Feb 1858.

159. Samuel Hollingsworth Link toTom [scrapbook] (John , Thomas , Thomas , Henry ) was born about 1767 in Ballinakill, County Wexford, Ireland. He died on 25 Mar 1815 in Ballinakill, Ballycanew, Ireland . He was buried on 27 Mar 1815 in With parents in Ballycanew Churchyard.

Based on Claire Hollingsworth's of Edmonton, Canada personal observation and notes taken at the Ballycanew Churchyard, the following information is on a 6 x4 grave stone.

John Hollingsworth d. 1791
wife Elizabeth d. 1781 (nee Tackaberry)

Son Samuel d. 1815
wife Anne d. 1 Apr 1849

I believe at this point in time that John d. 1791 and Elizabeth d. 1781 are my gggg grandparents.
And Samuel and Anne my ggg grandparents.

June 8, 2004: I believe that Samuel Hollingsworth, born about 1767 Ballinakill, County Wexford, Ireland is my great great great grandfather. (Samuel was also Harry Hollingsworth's ( author of the Hollingsworth Register) great, great, great grandfather.) My great great grandfather Sgt James Nicholas Hollingsworth named his first son Samuel and first daughter Elizabeth after his father and his wife Anne's mother Elizabeth or his grandmother Elizabeth Tackaberry. And by the same token I feel Samuel's father was named John, no proof at this time, but based on the fact he named his first son John and on bits and pieces this fits. Tom Hollingsworth

Hi Tom,
I did as you requested and checked the records again today. I am afraid that there is no entry for James Hollingsworth- the only entry in that time frame is for a Susanna Hollingsworth born on February 1st 1810 to Samuel and Ann Hollingsworth of Ballinakill.

Many families moved around the area at that time as the 1798 rising was only 12 years previously and things were still volatile here for some years. Some families had also lost their homes and compensation was slow in coming from the Crown. I will check my 3 other parishes when time permits to see if James was baptized in one of them.

My mailing address is as follows:
Reverend Mark Hayden.
The Rectory,
The Avenue,
Co. Wexford,

Todays exchange rate is Â1 Euro is equal to $1.25 US Dollars.
A donation is entirely up to you but if you wish to send something, please send it in cash as checks incur heavy bank charges and negate the benefit to the fund.
Sorry I did not find more but who knows what might appear in a neighboring parish.
In Christ,

Dear Reverend Hayden: Thank you again for your search and if you will be kind enough to check the other parishes when you have time, I would appreciate it. I didn't think about the other parishes because I am not familiar with the church representation in the area.
Meanwhile, I understand the difficulty sending a check or even converting the money here and sending it. I had that problem when figuring out how to send money to Dr. Hood in Dublin, I ended up sending cash.
I will be sending you some US dollars the first of the week. Thanks again for your past and future help. Best Regards, Tom Hollingsworth

Samuel Hollingsworth supposedly lost his leg in the Irish Rebellion 1789 according to family tradition handed down. When the danger of rebellion arose in Ireland, the entire establishment was in fear of uprising by the Catholics. The Militia and the British Regular Army existed, but seeing that wasn't enough protection so the farmers formed the "Yeomanry", a militia of yeomen farmers. This was formed under the Earl of Mountnorris, he was the landlord of the Hollingsworths, the same man known as Arthur Lord Viscount Valentia, which was another of his several titles.

Samuel's father John Hollingsworth when he died bequeathed his farm to his youngest son, my ggg grandfather. Samuel died and evidently left no will, whereby the above lot went in two equal moieties (halves) to his widow Anne and his eldest son John, who was the "representative" of the estate. The 1833 Tithe Books give this lot as to "Mrs." and John,with 40-1-34 acres plantation measure each, exactly half.

Frederick Hollingsworth, my "English-Irish Immigrant!" Is not that
sufficient grounds? The next article will explain the matter in greater
detail. It will also explain who Mrs. Allen means when she says that
her grandmother's brother went to America. He was, of course - and no
possibility of mistake here - Edward Thomas Hollingsworth of Cincinnati,
Ohio. I knew this from the first moment I read her first letter. Soon
she replied, verifying the information. She remembered her father's
sisters, Lena, Lucy and Mrs Evalyn Tudor, going on a world trip before
the Great War (1914-1918) and she remembered that they visited Ireland,
bringing back souvenirs which she still owns.  (by HH of HR)

June 1, 1798

A body of more than one thousand insurgents, in advancing towards Gorey, on the 1s of June 1798 had taken possession of a small village called Ballycanew, four miles to the south of Gorey....This victorious band, on their return from Gorey fired most of the houses at Ballycanew and entered the town in triumph, with 100 horses and other spoil they had taken.

Not just the private houses were set afire, the horde of rabble also entered the church and brought forth the registry and vestry minute books dating back, perhaps to the late 1600s, which they set on fire deliberately, calling them 'Heretick Books'. Rev Arthur Colley, with his vestrymen, on their return later began the new register with the solemn certificate that the older registers had been taken away or destroyed in the late Rebellion. (from Harry Hollingsworth's HR)

The Hollingsworths had farms just across the fields in several directions from the village and John Hollingsworth, son of John, had a shop in the village of Ballycanew. They had all left the area before the insurgents got there the first time, some of them including Nicholas Hollingsworth joined their yeomanry units to fight as a member of the Camolin Yeomanry Cavalry under Lord Mount Norris9 The Earl of Anglesey, Viscount Valentia.

Our Samuel Hollingsworth, Nicholas's brother is said to have had his leg shot off during that summer. Nicholas was a member of Lord Mountnorris's yeomanry, the Camolin Cavalry, he was later discharged for neglect of juty in 1799. (from HR)

Samuel married Anne Earl [scrapbook] daughter of Edward Earl and Esther Fitzsimmons about 1788. Anne was born in 1764 in Knockduff, Killmackilloge Parish, Co. Wexford. She died on 1 Apr 1849 in Ballinakill, County Wexford.

According to the last will of "Edward Earl", Anne's father of Knockduff, County Wexford written and proved in 1795, his son-in-law Samuel Hollingsworth had two children named Jane and Edward alive at that time, to whom the testator gave bequests.

Samuel and Anne had the following children:

+ 273 M i John Hollingsworth was born in 1789. He died on 16 Dec 1877.
  274 M ii Edward Earl Hollingsworth was born in 1790 in Ballinakill, Ballycanew, County Wexford. He died about 1834 in Winetavern Street, Dublin, Ireland.

Edward appears in the Dublin Directory in the period of the 1820s, and his address was 2 St. Michael's Hill, and his business, that of a paper manufacturer.

It is believed that Edward was a first cousin of John Robinson, who was quite wealthy, and strongly appears that Edward was an apprentice to the paper trade, which would explain his presence in Dublin as a young fellow.

What makes us (Harry Hollingsworth Ed. of the HR) so sure now, that this Edward was probably the Edward of the 1795 will - and therefore - the brother of Frederick Hollingsworth, is this. John Robinson of Usher's Quay, Dublin, Paper and Wine Merchant, was the oldest son of William Robinson of Ballycanew, farmer and of Martha Hollingsworth his wife, married in 1770, she a daughter of John and Elizabeth of Ballinakill, and hence a sister to Samuel Hollingsworth.

Edward appears to have died without having any children or "issue" as it is known in these matters.
        Edward married Alicia Cooke in 1825. Alicia was born in Edward & Alice had no children.. She died after 10 Jun 1846 in Summerville, County Dublin.

After Edward's death in 1834, Alice married Robert Richardson of Bushfield Avenue, Dublin and he died 28 March 1842. Alice was then in Summerville County Dublin, and this is the last record of any mention of her.
+ 275 F iii Jane Hollingsworth was born about 1791.
+ 276 F iv Esther Hollingsworth was born in 1794. She died on 11 Jun 1868.
  277 M v Nicholas Hollingsworth was born in 1799 in Ballycanew, Ireland. He died in 1872 in Madison County, New York.

Nicholas Hollingsworth and Hannah Tackaberry were most likely relatives of (James of Ballycanew) and as Harry Hollingsworth surmises were visiting relatives in Ireland. It appears that Nicholas went back to Ireland to visit his family, probably for one last time. His ticket was two way, New York to New York, in 2 cabin passenger, #5, Ship "Star of the West". He could have also brought Hannah Tackaberry to America with him since her family was also settled in Madison County, New York.
