Quaker dating - 8 Mo 6, 1648 is Oct 6, 1648. Quaker dates are based on the old Julian calendar.
Information on the Calvert family is from other researchers and has not been verified. Much of the information appears to come from “The Hollingsworth Register, The Quaker Hollingsworths Posterity Of Valentine,” by John V. Hollingsworth, Chadds Ford, Penna.; and “The history of the Calverts who were Quakers”, by J. Richard Buckey. (1)
John Calvert was the only child shown for a William Calvert born 1554, who married Elizabeth circa 1578 in Yorkshire, England. Elizabeth was born circa 1558 in England. This John Calvert, born in 1587/1589, Gisbrough, Yorkshire, moved to county Armagh before 1617, and married Grace _?_ (born 1595). Their child Thomas: “Thomas Calvart, son of John Calvart of Mooresome neere Gisbrough in Yorkshire in England, and of Grace, his wife, was borne at Lygakory nere Lurgan in the County of Ardmagh in Ireland” (2) Thomas’ child Ann: “Ann Calvert, daughter of Thomas Calvert, and granddaughter of John Calvert of Moresome neere Gisborough in ye county of Yorkshire in Old England....” who came to northern Ireland before 1617. (3) Hillsborough is a town a few miles east of Lurgan, over the line in County Down. This Calvert family came first into Lurgan, and then moved to what is now Hillsborough, and then back to Lurgan. But the invaluable information is their original English Parish home. “Moresome” neer Gisbrough is correctly called “Great Moresome,” now often written “Great Moorsholm.” It lies within the Parish of Skelton-in-Cleveland, and is a township thereof, being six miles east by south, of the town of Guisborough, in North Riding of the County of York, England. (4)
From an examination of the records of Yorkshire Parish Register Society, there is little doubt that the Calverts did indeed originate in Moorsholm. The “Wills in the York Registry Office,” covering years from the 1500’s until the late 1600’s show: (5)

Thomas Calvert was born on April 11, 1617 in County Armagh, Ireland, and died on December 17, 1685 at age 68 at New Castle County, Delaware. Thomas married Jane Glasford, daughter of Hugh Glasford and Margaret _?_, on November 11, 1647. Jane’s father, Hugh Glasford was born about 1594 Stranmillas, Belfast, County Antrim, Ireland. His wife was named Margaret. Their only child of record, Jane, was born about 1626, Stranmillis, Antrim, Ireland who married Thomas Calvert, April 11, 1647, Lurgan, Armagh, Ireland. (6) Thomas and Jane were members of the Society of Friends, (Quaker) religion. The children of Thomas and Jane were John, Ann, Margaret, and Elizabeth.
“Thomas Calvert, son of John Calvert, of Moresome, neere Gisbrough in Yorkshire, in England, and of Gwale his wife, was borne at Lygakowy (now Lurgan) in the County of Ardmagh, in Ireland, in the year 1617 and about the 11th of ye 2nd month (April), 1647 he took to wife Jane, daughter of Hugh Glassond and of Margaret his wife, of Stranmillis (now Belfast) in the County of Antrim, . . .” (7)
At Ulster Province Meeting, 4 Mo. 7, 1680, œ1. 13. 9d. was paid to Thomas Calvert for the apothecary at Carrickfergus, evidently for attendance on Friends confined in Carrickfergus jail; for on 6 Mo. 6, 1681, L. Alyson and T. Calvert were directed to supply the wants of prisoners there, œ2. 10s being appropriated for the purpose. In 1681, Thomas Calvert, of Parish of Carrickfergus, County Antrim, had some hay and oats, valued at 11s., taken for tithes. This may be from William Stockdale, A Great Cry of Oppression, p. 167.
The following was taken from Immigration of the Irish Quakers into Pennsylvania, 1682-1750: (8) “Mary Calvert and William Whitesite, were married 3 Mo. 27, 1696, by Friends’ ceremony at the house of Thomas Calvert near Carrickfergus. at Lygasory, near Lurgan, County Armagh, and about 9 Mo. 11, 1647, Thomas Calvert married Jane Glasford, daughter of Hugh Glasford and wife Margaret, of ‘Stranmillis (nere Belfast),’ County Antrim.”
When Thomas’ son John arrived in Pennsylvania in 1683, he purchased land in Upper Providence Township. After his arrival, he brought his father, Thomas Calvert, and wife, Jane Glassford, to America. Thomas, then in his sixties, had purchased another 300 acres, but died shortly after arriving. Thomas spoke his will in 1684/85 (from the Hollingsworth Register). It is odd that he did not mention his son John or daughter Ann. It is also unusual that Margaret seems to have been administrator. This would typically be a role for a son. The land he willed to his daughter Margaret became a land dispute between his son John and Margaret’s husband, Thomas Hollingsworth.

Given under my hand & the Seal of my Office at Philadelphia the 17th day of the 12th Month 1685. Christopher Taylor Regr.” Philadelphia County Will Book A, pages 30-32.
The will was “uttered” by Thomas Calvert on 15th of 1st Month (March) 1685 (as recorded) which must be 1684/5, because the proof was given almost a year later, on 17th of 12th Month (February) 1685, which would be 1685/86 in Old Style dating. This testator nuncupative is Thomas Calvert, born 1617 in County Armagh, (now in Northern) Ireland, child of John and Grace Calvert, formerly of Great Morsome, Parish of Skelton-in-Cleveland, Yorkshire.
His wife, Jane Glasford, daughter of Hugh and Margaret Glasford, was living when Thomas Calvert spoke his will, the last she has been found. Daughter Margaret had married Thomas Hollingsworth by May 17, 1686, when John Calvert, Margaret’s brother, entered his Caveat in the Surveyor General’s Office, which called for a fair hearing regarding the lands in question. (9)
The children of Thomas and Jane were:
John, see below.
Ann, see below.
Margaret, see below.
Elizabeth Calvert, born April or June 26, 1664 at Sego, Armagh, Ireland, was named in Thomas Calvert’s will. Elizabeth married Thomas Toppen /Toppon on December 25, 1701 at Ballyhagen Meeting, Armagh, Ireland (undocumented). It is odd that her father willed her a chest if Elizabeth was still in Ireland.
John Calvert (Thomas1) was born on October 6, 1648 at Stranmillis, near Belfast, Ireland and died in Delaware County, Pennsylvania. John Calvert was buried 7th mo. (September), 23, 1699. (10) He married Judith Stamper on May 12, 1673 at Lurgan, County Armagh, Ireland, daughter of Hugh Stamper (see below). “John Calvert son of Thomas Calvert, of Drumgor, Parish of Segoe, County Armagh, Ireland, and Jane, his wife, was born 8 Mo. 6, 1648, in Stranmillis, near Belfast; was married 3 Mo. (May), 29, 1673, at the house of Roger Webb, to Judith Stamper, daughter of Hugh Stamper and Bridget, his wife, of Lurgan, County Armagh. Judith Stamper was born 3 Mo. 12, 1652, at “bowlton wood,” County Cumberland, England.” (11)
John and his wife Judith, with their children Ruth, Isaac, Thomas and Joshua, left Ireland and came to Pennsylvania in 1683. (12) The family settled in Upper Providence Township, now Delaware County, where he owned 300 acres of land, granted to him by William Penn, 1 Mo. 13, 1683 (March 13, 1683). An adjoining tract of 300 acres was also granted at the same time for Thomas Calvert, the father. Still another tract of 100 acres, contiguous to the above, was granted on the same date to Margaret Calvert, probably the daughter of Thomas.
Chenoweth researcher Gregory George Wulker provided the following information on John Calvert, his wife Judith, and his daughter Mary Calvert (13): “Mary Calvert, wife of John Chenoweth, was born February 19, 1687 in Upper Providence Township, (Delaware County 1789), Pennsylvania. According to J.R. Buckey, who wrote ‘The Calverts Who Were Quakers’ Mary was the daughter of John Calvert and Judith Stamper. John Calvert was born the 6th of October 1648, near Belfast, Ireland. He was married on 29th of May 1673 in Stranmillis, Belfast to Judith Stamper, the daughter of Hugh Stamper and his wife Briget. John Calvert was later living in county Armagh, Ireland and began to embrace the Quaker faith, along with his future brother-in-law Valentine Hollingsworth. Both men were living in the town of Lurgan, Calvert listed as a landowner, and Hollingsworth as a yeoman. A map of Lurgan dated 1703, still showed the name Calvert on a town lot, possibly a brother to John.
“The immigration of this Calvert line into Ireland from Yorkshire, England was for religious freedom, as this line had chosen to follow the Quaker faith, and were being persecuted and jailed for their beliefs. Hugh Stamper, Mary Calvert Chenoweths’ grandfather (Mary, daughter of John Calvert), had been imprisoned in Carlisle Castle Prison in 1663 (Cumbria County, England) for his beliefs, and also fined. Shortly after, he must have fled to Ireland. County Armagh had become somewhat of a safe haven for Quakers, . . . The Calvert family line along with other Lurgan Quakers were instrumental in helping to perpetuate the Quaker religion in County Armagh and the rest of Ireland. Armagh saw more Quaker immigrants come to America than any other county in Ireland, and John Calvert was among them. He came with William Penn’s Quakers into Pennsylvania in 1683. John Calverts’ father and mother-in-law, Hugh and Briget Stamper, continued to follow Quaker teachings, and both remained near Lurgan. When they died, they were buried in what is believed to be the oldest Quaker burial ground in Ireland. The graveyard, called Lynastown . . . Both John Calvert and Valentine Hollingsworth were listed as lsquo;commissioners’ of the graveyard at one time. Hugh Stamper was buried in 1676, Briget in 1681, a son Daniel in 1684, and daughter Sarah in 1674. There are no gravestones, reflecting the early Quaker belief.
“When Mary Calvert’s father, John, arrived in Pennsylvania in 1683, he purchased of William Penn, land in Upper Providence Township. He became one of the largest landowners in what became Delaware County, Pennsylvania. After his arrival, he brought his father, Thomas Calvert, and wife, Jane Glassford, to America. Thomas had purchased another 300 acres, but died shortly after arriving. His will, dated 1684/85 in Philadelphia, mentions his wife Jane, but that is the last we hear of her. John Calvert acquired upwards of 800 acres from his original purchase, his father’s land and sisters. . . . This land became the focus of a dispute between John Calvert and his Hollingsworth in-laws (see below). At the same time, the Quakers asked John Calvert to settle the dispute. He refused to answer them and this must have been the reason for John Calvert to leave the Quaker faith. He had been elected constable of Upper Providence in 1687. There is no indication that John joined another church. When he died in September 1699, the Philadelphia Quaker Meeting graveyard recorded his burial as one not of the Quaker faith.
“Judith Calvert, however, had joined another faith, and in 1697 she was baptized in Ridley Creek, near her home, by Thomas Martin. She was baptized into the Seventh Day Baptist Church but this union did not last long. About 1700, a difference arose about which day to observe the Sabbath, and the society was dissolved. In 1702, and before, a group was forming; some from Christ Church, Philadelphia and many who were former Quakers. They started a church near the Delaware River and the church was to be called St Paul’s Episcopal on the Delaware. In the records of the church were found Judith Calvert and her son Isaac, both who became wardens of the church (found on a list dated 1704). . . . Land records of Bristol, Pennsylvania across the Delaware River from Burlington (New Jersey), record the name of John Chenoweth as a witness to three separate land transactions, dated 1706, 1707, and 1708. It is believed that he was living in Bristol, Pennsylvania, crossing over by way of ferry to St. Mary’s church.
“As noted above, John Calvert moved with his family, late in 1682, to Pennsylvania (it is probable that he came with Valentine and his family), and settled in Upper Providence township, Chester County, Pennsylvania (now Delaware County), where he owned 300 acres of land granted to him by William Penn, 1st month, 13, 1683. (14) An adjoining tract of 300 acres was also granted, at the same time, for his father, Thomas Calvert. Still another tract of 100 acres, contiguous to the above, was granted on the same date to Margaret Calvert, the daughter of Thomas, and a sister to John and Ann. On 2 Mo (April) 11 1691, it was ordered that a patent for the whole tract should be made to John Calvert, to whom it was made appear to belong. At Chester Monthly Meeting, 4 Mo (June) 6 1687, mention is made of a difference between John Calvert and Thomas Hollingsworth (stepson of John Calvert’s sister Ann, who married Valentine Hollingsworth) about dividing their lands in Upper Providence. This difference arose between John Calvert and Thomas Hollingsworth over the division of their lands in Upper Providence Township in Chester Monthly Meeting, of which John Calvert was then a member. . . .”
John and his wife Judith gave testimony in a case of trespassing and a boar in Chester County: (15) “Joshua Hasting Plt. in an Action of trespasse Ffrancis Yarnall Defendt Names of ye Petty Jury: Robert Vernon, Joseph Richards, Edmond Carleidge, John Edge, Edward Carter, Walter Ffaussett, John Taylor, Thomas Minshall, Nathaniel Evins, Caleb Pusie, John Child, John Mendinghall.

After much testimony of other witnesses - The Jury finde for ye Plaintife twenty five shilling with Cost of Suite Hereupon Judgment is granted upon which ye Defendant makes his Appeale to ye next Court of Equity held for this County”
John and Judith are said to have had fourteen children, those found are:
Ruth Calvert, born 6 Mo. 2, 1674 (August 2, 1674), at Lurgan, County Armagh, Ireland, married circa 1697, Edward Paviour of Upper Providence. “Thomas Jones and his wife and Joseph Phips and his wife were ordered to come to the next Meeting to give an account of their going to the marriage of Edward Paver and Ruth Calvert” (16)
Isaac Calvert, born 9 Mo. 2, 1676 (November 2, 1676), at Lurgan.
Thomas Calvert, born 9 Mo. 27, 1678 (November 27, 1678), at Lurgan. Thomas bought a lot in Chester, in 1700, and sold it in 1702.
Joshua Calvert, born 8 Mo. 18, 1680 (October 18, 1680), at Lurgan. At a Chester County court, held 6 Mo. 25, 1702, the sheriff made a return of an execution on the estate of John Calvert, which was sold to Joshua, and Thomas Calvert for 243 pounds. Joshua was constable of Upper Providence in 1704. In 1724, he had 370 acres of the Calvert land in Upper Providence. The remainder seems to have been in possession of Daniel Calvert. Joshua Calvert married, 1709 in Chester County, Pennsylvania, Deborah, daughter of George and Elizabeth Harlan. Deborah was born August 28, 1690 in New Castle County, Delaware. Joshua and Deborah are thought by Gilbert Cope to have been the parents of Thomas Calvert, who married Sarah Williamson, about 1739, lived in Edgmont, now Delaware County, and probably in East Marlborough, Chester County. Deborah’s parents were Quakers who came from Ireland to Pennsylvania in 1687. John Calvert was a witnesses to the marriage record of Deborah Harlan’s father in Lurgan, Ireland.
Daniel Calvert, born 5 Mo. 6, 1685 (July 6, 1685) in Pennsylvania, married Elizabeth Pritchett circa 1709. Daniel’s estate was administered on May 4, 1759 in Chester County, Pennsylvania. An Ezekial Harlan died intestate and a Daniel Calvert was made his administrator on May 13, 1754. This may refer to this Daniel or a son of Daniel’s brother Joshua and his wife Deborah Harlan who may have had a son Daniel. Ezekiel Harlan mentioned is their nephew.
Mary Calvert was born 12 Mo. 19, 1687 (February 19, 1687) in Upper Providence Township, (later became Delaware County), Pennsylvania, and died in Baltimore County, Maryland. (17) Mary married John Chenoweth in 1705. According to J.R. Buckey, who wrote The Calverts Who Were Quakers, Mary was the daughter of John Calvert and Judith Stamper.
Judith Calvert, born August 1688 in Pennsylvania, married 10 Mo. 8, 1725 (December 8, 1725), Daniel Broom, of Marple, now Delaware County. The children of Judith and Daniel are said to have been James, Mary, Daniel, and twins Thomas and Elizabeth. (18) It is thought that their son Daniel was the one who was “reported for fighting, keeping loose company and neglecting meetings” in the Chester Monthly Meeting minutes of 1759 and for “drinking to excess and swearing” in 1760. In 1766 and 1771, there are bills settled for the “maintenance” of Judith Broom, suggesting that husband Daniel had died before that time. In 1772, it was her son Thomas’ turn to be reported for Drinking and neglecting meetings. These records indicate that the Daniel Broom - Judith Calvert family remained in the Chester area and members of the Friends at least through the mid-1770s.
John Calvert, born circa 1689, see below.
There is undocumented information on Judith's father Hugh Stamper and his family. (19) Hugh Stamper is said to have been born circa 1620. His wife, Bridget was born circa 1624 at Bolton Wood, Cumberland County, England. Hugh and Bridget were married in 1651 at Bolton Wood, Cumberland County. They had at least two children, Judith and Hugh. We know that Hugh lived in Cumberland County, England, where he adopted the Quaker faith and was imprisoned there for his belief in 1655 and 1656. There is a record of Hugh Stamper’s imprisonment at Carlisle in 1654, nine years earlier than the 1663 mentioned by Wulker above: “Thomas Bewley and Hugh Stamper, standing at the Sessions in Carlisle with their hats on, were by the Justices committed to prison without any legal cause assigned. After a month’s confinement they were discharged without paying fees: but Hugh Stamper was afterwards arrested for fees and again imprisoned and detained there one and twenty weeks.” (20) He may have left England soon after; since in 1664, Hugh Stamper was taxed two shillings for one hearth in Lurgan, County Armagh, Ireland. (21) In a list of Shankill Churchwardens, Hugh Stamper, a Quaker converted in England, was appointed ‘overseer of the highway’ by the Shankill Parish in 1674 and 1675. (22) As noted above, Hugh and Bridget Stamper, followed Quaker teachings, and both remained near Lurgan. Hugh died in 1676 and Bridget in 1681. When they died, they were buried in what is believed to be the oldest Quaker burial ground in Ireland, the graveyard, called Lynastown. Their children, Sarah and Daniel were also buried there. Children of Hugh and Bridget:
Judith Stamper was born March 12, 1652 at Bolton Parish, Cumberland County, England.
Hugh Stamper was born May 14, 1654 at Bolton Wood, Cumberland County, England.
SarahStamper, born 1660 (undocumented), died 1674 (February 23, 1674, undocumented).
Daniel Stamper, born 1670 (undocumented), died 1684 (January 28, 1685, undocumented).
Most of the information is from Descendants of Virginia Calverts. (23)
John Calvert (John2, Thomas1) was born circa 1689 at Upper Providence Township, now Delaware County, Pennsylvania (son of John Calvert and Judith Stamper). He moved to Orange County, Virginia in 1732 (became Frederick County in 1743), with a group of Quakers who had secured land through Alexander Ross. He is listed as one of the “Fathers of the Colony” (see information on Hopewell Meeting). On November 12, 1735, the State of Virginia granted John Calvert 850 acres of land beginning at two white oaks and a hickory near Abraham Hollingsworth’s line. (24) This land was located in what is now Frederick County, Virginia, east of the village of Kernstown, is a few miles southwest of the town of Winchester. John Calvert’s land of 850 acres was located next to Abraham Hollingsworths on Red Bud Creek. Abraham Hollingsworth house, “Abram’s Delight,” built 1754 is oldest house in Winchester, Virginia, and now houses the Winchester/Frederick County Historical Society. His home is said to have served as the first Quaker Meeting house.
The will of John Calvert dated October 2, 1738; proved June 28, 1739; was recorded in Orange County, Virginia (now Frederick County). (25) He called himself of the Colony of Virginia, and county of Orange, and willed his wife Jane Calvert one-third of all his lands, during her life. To his sons Robert and Isaiah the remainer of land, 850 acres, whereupon John Stephens now lives; to daughter Margaret, 300 acres of land called Hogg Run. To Rebecca and Ann Calvert, 200 acres each. To son Richard Calvert [or Robert, two transcriptions differ] the remainer of 992 acres at the death of his mother. To wife Jane Calvert my young mare 2 years old, with bald face, and the old mare. To son Robert Calvert the gray horse. To son Isaiah Calvert his choice of horses. To niece Elizabeth Carey or Cory, the brindle cow and calf. To daughters Margery, Rebecca and Ann a mare each. Rest of the estate to the children. Sons Robert and Isaiah Calvert executors. Witnesses, Terence Notley and Henry Jones.
The widow Jane Calvert then married John Stephens. The children of John Calvert were:
Robert Calvert, born circa 1715, died before August 1756 in Frederick County, married Mary _?_. Robert was executor for the estate of Hugh Parrell, which was probated October 5, 1748. On August 3, 1756, administration of the estate of Robert Calvert, deceased, was granted to Richard Calvert, his brother – Mary, the widow of the said deceased, relinquishing in Court her right of Administration. (26) On November 4, 1777, there was an Indenture between Isaiah Calvert, son and heir at law of Robert Colvert, deceased, of County of Frederick, and Margaret his wife, and Samuel Colvert of second part of said County and Colony, conveying 206 acres . . . granted by Patent bearing date November 12, 1735, to John Colvert, deceased, who in his last will and testament among other things had willed said Tract to the above mentioned Robert Calvert, deceased, who died intestate, etc. (27) In 1762, Richard Calvert was the assignee of the Robert Calvert who was executor of the estate of Hugh Parrell, deceased. The children of Robert and Mary:
Isaiah Calvert, born circa 1743, Frederick County, died probably before 1800 in Washington County, Kentucky. Isaiah married Margaret _?_, probably circa 1773 in Frederick County. Margaret died after 1820, probably in Washington County, Kentucky, as she was recorded as over 45 years of age on both the 1810 and 1820 census records for Washington County. On November 3, 1777, there was a deed between Isaiah Calvert (son and heir at law of Robert Calvert, deceased, of County of Frederick, Virginia) and Margaret his wife, and Samuel Colvert of sd. County and Colony, conveying 206 acres of land on the drains of Opequon and being a part of a greater tract of land containing 850 acres granted by patent bearing the date November 12, 1835, to John Calvert deceased, who in his last will and testament, among other things, willed said tract to the above mentioned Robert Calvert, deceased, who died intestate, etc. Isaiah Calvert was a soldier in the Revolutionary War. It is not known just when Isaiah Calvert left Virginia. He paid taxes in Nelson County, Kentucky in 1793, 1794, 1795, but owned no land. His name then disappeared from all lists. No will has been found. His wife Margaret was in the 1810 and 1820 census records for Washington County, Kentucky, aged over 45 years. The 1810 census also had the names of William and Richard Calvert aged between 26 and 45; and John Calvert under 26. From such sources as these are compiled the names of Isaiah’s children. The children of Isaiah and Margaret may have been: Daniel Calvert, born circa 1774, married (1) _?_, (2) Margaret Calhoun; Mary Calvert, born circa 1776, married Isaac Coffman on August 3, 1796, Washington County, Kentucky; Agnes Calvert, born circa 1778, married John Williams on June 6, 1800, Washington County, Kentucky; John Calvert, born circa 1780, married Mary Servant on January 12, 1803, Washington County, Kentucky; Susan Calvert, born May 1782, married _?_ Calvert; Robert Calvert, born circa 1783, married Nancy Hopewell on May 26, 1803, Mercer County, Kentucky; William Calvert, born circa 1784, married Peggy Askins on December 3, 1804, Washington County, Kentucky; Richard Calvert, born circa 1788, married Margaret Crowder on November 21, 1808, Lincoln County, Kentucky; Isaiah Calvert, born February 6, 1795, married Mary Taylor Sandifer, “Polly.”
Samuel Calvert, born 1745 in Frederick County, died in May 1807 in Winchester, Virginia, married Milly _?_, probably circa 1774. Of the three sons of John and Jane Calvert, progenitors of the Frederick County, Virginia Calverts, the youngest, Richard, left a will; the second, Isaiah, died intestate in 1748, with no record of wife or that guardians were appointed for any children. The conclusion is that this Samuel Calvert was a son of neither Richard nor Isaiah, but was a child of Robert, the eldest son. Samuel’s name appeared on lists of Revolutionary soldiers. At a Court held on August 4, 1779, it was ordered that Samuel Calvert be recommended to the Governor as a proper person to be appointed Lieutenant. (28) On November 3, 1775, for a consideration of One Hundred pounds, Isaiah Calvert, son and heir of Robert Calvert, conveyed to Samuel Calvert 206 acres on Opequon Creek in Frederick County, Virginia, which had been part of a larger tract patented to John Calvert and willed to his son Robert Calvert, deceased. On December 9, 1784, Samuel Colvert of Frederick County conveyed to John Brady of Borough of Winchester, Virginia, 10 acres situated in Frederick County being part of same tract Samuel purchased from Isaiah Calvert. (29) On September 23, 1802, Samuel Colvert of the Borough of Winchester conveyed to Henry Calmes of Frederick County, a lot of land containing 1¾ acres, known as lot No. 22. (30) The will of Samuel Calvert, dated May 1, 1807, was proved on May 29, 1807: (31) Samuel Calvert bequeaths to his son Samuel Colvert of Lexington, Kentucky, the sum of one thousand dollars. To his loving wife Milly Colvert, the house and lot in town. To his children Mary Colvert, Ann Morris and Milly Colvert, the Plantation near Winchester. To Gilbert Noakes his great coat, one cow and calf. Executors: Beatty Carson and Obed Waite. Witnesses: Adam Kurtz, James Walls, John Crockwell, Geo. R. Frye. The appraisement of “Samuel Calvert, weaver,” was made by James Wall, Adam Kurtz and George Fry, June 10, 1807. (32) In 1808, the Will Book 2, p. 33, shows that Samuel Calvert was paid on account of a legacy. At a Court held for the Corporation of Winchester on February 4, 1825, the estate account of Samuel Colvert, deceased, was produced to the Court and recorded. The children of Samuel and Milly were: Samuel Calvert, born circa 1771, married _?_; Mary Calvert; Ann Calvert, married Thaddeus Morris, January 5, 1802, Frederick County, Virginia; Milly Calvert.
Robert Calvert, born probably before 1750. May be the Robert Calvert who settled in Botetourt County, VA. November 21, 1757, on petition of Robert Calvert an orphan of Robert Calvert, deceased. James Perkins was appointed his guardian (Orders 7, p. 304). (33)
Isaiah/Isaac Calvert, born circa 1718, died 1748. letters of administration for his estate granted to Robert Calvert. (34)
Margaret Calvert, born circa 1721.
Rebecca Calvert, born circa 1723.
Ann Calvert, born circa1725, married Hugh Parrell. See Bruce history
Richard Calvert, born circa 1727, died in August 1770 in Frederick County, married Sarah _?_. In 1757, Richard Calvert made a tobacco payment of 100 for Clerk Fees in Frederick County, Virginia. (35) He was on the rent rolls for Frederick County in 1759 and 1764. On March 1, 1762, Richard Calvert and wife Sarah of the Parish of Frederick in the Colony of Virginia, conveyed 95 acres on the west side of Opequon on a Branch called Red Bud, being part of a larger tract of 352 acres conveyed to Richard Colvert by deed from the Proprietor, April 10, 1760. On August 3, 1762, Richard and Sarah Colvert sold this land to Benjamin Blackburn. On August 7, 1766, Richard Calvert and Sarah his wife, deeded to Robert Rutherford, 52 acres - part of 352 acres on west side of Opequon, a branch of Red Bud. Then on February 8, 1768, Robert Rutherford and Mary his wife, conveyed to Richard Calvert 277 acres of land, situated on the head branches of Mill Creek, a Branch of Opequon in Frederick County. Richard and Sarah sold this land on August 1, 1769 to William Boyd, the 277 acres lying on Mill Creek near the foot of the North mountain in Frederick County, Virginia.
The will of Richard Calvert, dated February 27, 1770, was proved on August 7, 1770: (36) “First: I recommend my soul to Almighty God who gave it and my body to the earth from whence it was taken, . . . I will that all my just debts and funeral charges be fully paid and discharged. Item: Loving wife Sarah Colvert to have plantation and house, together with all moveable estate for the support of herself and maintenance and bring up and educate my children all to be and remain hers for and during her natural life or widowhood, and after her decease or marriage my will is that said land be sold and equall divided between by two sons John and Robert Colvert after paying their sister, my beloved daughter Jean Colvert the sum of 20 pounds. If wife marry she shall have her thirds. Sarah Colvert and Morgan Morgan named executors. Wittnesses: John Albin, William Milburn, Andrew Milburn.
Sarah married, second, William Milburn, a witness to her husband’s will. On November 8, 1771, there was a petition of Joseph Janney against William Millburn and Sarah his wife, executors, etc. of Richard Calvert, deceased, for a debt due by account. This day the plaintiff by his attorney and the defendant having been duly served with a copy of the petition and account and summoned to appear, were solemnly called but came not . . . It is therefore considered by the Court that the plaintiff recover against the Defendants two pounds five shillings and six pence and his costs by him in the behalf expended to be levied of the Goods and chattels of the said decedent in the hands of the Defendant to be administered.
The children of Richard and Sarah:
John Calvert, born circa 1765, died circa November 1838, married on January 21, 1821, Anne Parrell. Apparently they had no children. In his will dated April 1838, proved December 3, 1838, he bequests to his sister, Sarah Parrill, widow of Joseph Parrill, deceased, and her three single daughters, viz: Eleanor, Sarah and Mary Y. Parrill, all his real and personal estate when and wheresoever it be found: viz; Thirty-one acres and a half of land, lying in Frederick County adjoining Arthur Carter and others, also some revolutionary claims, and furniture of all descriptions to them and their heirs forever. Lastly I appoint Sarah Parrill and her three daughters above named my sole executors without any security whatever. John Calvert signed his will by mark. On October 1, 1827, John Calvert, aged 62, of the County of Frederick, Virginia, said he enlisted for the war in the spring of 1781, near Winchester, in a troop of Cavalry or Light Dragoons, commanded by Capt. Armand Vangiuson. He was a native of Frederick County. In 1854, Sarah Parrell asks that her lawful Attorny may make investigation of the service of her brother, John Colvert, a Revolutionary pensioner.
Robert Calvert, born circa 1767 near Red Bud, Frederick County, Virginia, died October 1852, near Guysville, Athens County, Ohio, married (1) _?_, (2) circa 1793, probably in Hampshire County, Virginia (now West Virginia), to Ruth Selby. Ruth died circa 1839 near Guysville, Ohio, daughter of Nathan and Agnes Selby. Robert Calvert was a farmer and a teacher. In 1801 he was living in Hampshire County, Virginia, where William and Sarah Millburn conveyed to him 214¼ acres of land on southeast side of North River. (37) Sarah Millburn was Robert’s mother. After his father’s death she married William Millburn, one of the witnesses to Richard Calvert’s will. 1801, Robert Calvert and Ruth his wife sold to Joseph Tucker (all of Hampshire County), 44 acres on North River. (38) 1808, they sold land to Archibald Linthicum and also to Josephus Tucker. (39) 1810, a deed from Robert and Ruth Calvert to Elisha Thompson, land on southeast side of North River, part of the Millburn land. (40) No further record of Robert Calvert was found in Hampshire County. He is said to have purchased a farm near Guysville, Athens County, Ohio, in 1810, where he lived the remainder of his life. Children of Robert and his first wife were John and Nancy. Children of Robert and Ruth were: Nathan Calvert, born May 15, 1794, married Nancy Jackson; William Calvert, born January 20, 1797, married Mary _?_; Eleanor McGruder Calvert, born June 7, 1799; Richard Calvert, born September 17, 1801; Joshua Calvert, born October 4, 1803, married Charlotte Moore; Robert Bruce Calvert, born May 3, 1805, married Olive Arnold; Elisha Calvert, born March, 11, 1808; Amos Calvert, born August 25, 1812; Jonathan Calvert, born September 1, 1817, married Mary Ann _?_.
Sarah Jean Calvert, born circa 1769, married Joseph Parrell (see above and Bruce history).
“Ann Calvert [Thomas1], daughter of Thomas Calvert, and granddaughter of John Calvert of Moresome neere Gisborough in ye county of Yorkshire in Old England.” (41) Ann Calvert was born on November 9, 1650 at Kilwarling, County Down, Ireland and died on August 17, 1697 at Shellpot Creek, New Castle County, Delaware, buried in Old Burying Ground, Newark. (42) Anne was the second wife of Valentine Hollingsworth Sr. They were married on June 12, 1672 in Shankill Monthly Meeting, Armagh, Ireland. Valentine Hollingsworth Sr. was born on August 15, 1632 in Ballyvickcrannell,Seagoe, Armagh, Ireland. He died on October 13, 1710 in Newark, Delaware. He was buried in Newark Union Church Yard.
According to Immigration of the Irish Quakers into Pennsylvania, (43) Valentine became a Quaker while still in Ireland, and suffered true persecution for his faith. William Stockdale gives the following account of Hollingsworth's persecutions for tithes: 1671, County Armagh, “Valentine Hollingsworth had taken from him for Tithe, by Thomas Ashbrook, Tithmonger, twenty nine stooks of Barly, and three stooks and a half of oats, all worth one pound one shilling.” 1672, “Valentine Hollingsworth for Tithe by Edward O'Maghan, 26 stooks wheat, 3 car-loads Hey, 26 stooks of oats, 26 stooks of Barley, value 2 pounds 8 shillings;” 1673, corn and hay, valued at 2 pounds; 1674, wheat, hay, oats, barley, valued at 3 pounds, 4 shillings. The deposition of Valentine’s son, Samuel, made before the Mayor of Philadelphia, June 4, 1735, Samuel stated that they “cam into Penn in the latter part of 1682 and was at Chester Penn the day William Penn arrived.”
Valentine Sr. settled on a plantation of nearly 1000 acres in Brandy Wine Hundred, Delaware. Shortly after his arrival a Meeting was established at his house, and in 1687 he granted “unto friends for a burying place half an acre of land for ye purpose, there being already friends buried in the spot.” He was a member of the first Pennsylvania Assembly 1682-83, and of the Assemblies of 1687, 1688, 1695, and 1700. He was a signer of William Penn’s Great Charter and a justice for New Kent County. He was an overseer of Friends’ meeting many years. Anne died Aug. 17, 1697, and his death occurred circa 1711. Both Valentine Hollingsworth Sr. and Anne were buried in the Friends’ graveyard at Newark, Delaware, which he had given them in 1687.
All the Meetings (except the meeting for worship) keep records of their proceedings. Quaker marriage ceremonies were unique. When the couple decided to marry, they presented a request to their Monthly Meeting. A committee was appointed to look into the request and see that there had been no previous engagements or anything that would prevent the marriage. At the next succeeding Monthly Meeting, the couple made a second request. The committee was heard from and if the committee reported favorably, they were “passes,” that is, they were permitted to marry. The time was left up to the couple, when they would appear at a public meeting, usually called for the purpose, and each made a public declaration, after which the certificate of marriage was signed by all who witnessed the ceremony. The signed certificate was not immediately given to the couple, but was handed to the “Recorder,” who copied it in the marriage book. A witnesses to Ann’s request was Hugh Stamper, probably the father of Ann’s grandmother, Judith Stamper.
“This is to certify the truth to all people that Valentine Hollenworth in ye psh of Sego in ye county of Armagh, and Anne Calvert of the same psh having intentions of marriage according to the ordinances of God, and Gods joining, Did lay it before mons meeting before them their marriage being propounded, then ye meeting desired them to wait some time, wch they did, so the meeting makeing inquiry between the time whether ye man be free from all other women, and the woman free from all other man, and so the second time they comeing before the mens meeting, all things being clear, so they being left to their freedome.

“Valentine Hollingsworth Sr., first of this family in America, was born in Parish Sego, County Armagh, Kreland, about 1632, son of Henry and Catherine Hollingsworth. He married, Apr. 7, 1655, Ann, daughter of Nicholas Ree, of the same county. She died Feb. 1, 1671, and he then married Ann, daughter of Thomas and Jane Calvert, of Parish Sego, County Armagh, Apr. 12, 1672. In 1682 he and his family, including his son-in-law Thomas Connaway and indented servant John Musgrave, sailed from Belfast to the Delaware River, arriving a few months after William Penn’s ship, the Welcome. He settled on a plantation of nearly 1000 acres in Brandy Wine Hundred, Del. Shortly after his arrival a meeting was established at his house, and in 1687 he granted ‘unto ffriends for a burying place half an acre of land for ye purpose, there being already ffriends buried in the spot.’ He was a member of the first Pennsylvania Assembly 1682-83, and of the Assemblies of 1687, 1688, 1695, and 1700. He was a signer of Penn’s Great Charter and a justice for New Kent County. He was an overseer of Friends’ meeting many years. His second wife died Aug. 17, 1697, and his death occurred about 1711. Both Valentine Hollingsworth Sr. and his second wife are buried in the Friends’ graveyard at Newark, Del., which he had given them in 1687. By his first marriage he had 11 children.” (44)
Children of Valentine and his first wife Anne are said to be:
Mary Hollingsworth, born on March 25, 1656, died in 1746.
Henry Hollingsworth, born on November 7, 1658, died in March 1721.
Thomas Valentine Hollingsworth, born on May 1, 1661, died on April 2, 1727.
Katherine Hollingsworth, born in May 1663, died on June 29, 1746.
Children of Valentine and Anne are said to be:
Samuel Hollingsworth was born on March 27, 1673, died on 30 Aug 1748.
Enoch Hollingsworth, born on August 7, 1675 in Belleniskcrannel, Seagoe, Armagh, Ireland. He died on October 24, 1687 in Shellpot Creek, New Castle County, Delaware.
Valentine Hollingsworth Jr., born on November 12, 1677, died on March 25, 1757.
Ann Hollingsworth, born on December 28, 1680, died on October 26, 1712.
John Hollingsworth, born on April 19, 1684, died on August 22, 1722.
Joseph Hollingsworth, born on October 10, 1686 in Shellpot Creek, New Castle County, Delaware. He died circa 1732 in Opeckan, Frederick County, Virginia. Joseph was a cooper or barrel maker. He went from his birthplace to Cecil County, Maryland, with his half brother Henry, and signed as a witness to a deed of 1711 by the latter, and again witnessed two others dated 1721. He then moved to Virginia He evidently rented space for his barrel making shop or worked as an itinerant. Joseph married Elizabeth Parkins (Perkins) in 1708/1710. Elizabeth was born circa 1686. She died after 1733 in Opeckan, Frederick County, Virginia. When Joseph died he left minor children and Isaac Parkins took them as wards, being a kinsman to them. Isaac was probably either Elizabeth’s brother or father. Elizabeth remarried John Renfro.
Enoch Hollingsworth, born on May 10, 1690 in Shellpot Creek, New Castle County, Delaware, died on September 26, 1692 at Shellpot Creek.
Margaret Calvert (Thomas1) was born on June 24, 1661 in Kullurigan, Seagoe, Armagh, Ireland. (45) She died on August 1, 1687 in New Castle County, Delaware. She married Thomas Hollingworth by May 17, 1686 in Rockland Manor, New Castle County, Delaware. It is likely that Margaret Calvert, sister to Anne (second wife of Valentine Hollingsworth, Sr.), and soon-to-be wife of Valentine’s son, Thomas Hollingsworth, (not a son of Anne Calvert), sailed out of Dublin, Ireland, and landed in Philadelphia 14th day of 8th month (October) 1683. The Pennsylvania Genealogical Magazine, shows ‘Margaret Colvert, late of Dublin came in ditto ship,’ the Lion of Liverpool. (46) Henry Hollingsworth, son of Valentine, was also aboard that ship as an indentured servant. Margaret had seemingly paid for her passage. Her name was not in the servants’ column. Margaret (Calvert) had married Thomas Hollingsworth by May 17, 1686, when John Calvert, Margaret’s brother, entered his Caveat in the Surveyor General’s Office that called for a fair hearing regarding the lands in question. (47) Abraham Hollingsworth, the only offspring of Thomas and Margaret, was born 19th of 1st Month (March) 1686/7. This may indicate that the marriage (no document has ever been found of the wedding) had taken place very recently when the Caveat was signed, possibly in April or early May 1686.
