Information on Samuel Hollingsworth

From "The Breviate in the boundary dispute between Pennsylvania and Maryland" by John Penn, Thomas Penn, Richard Penn, Baron Charles: (taken abt. 1739)

Samuel Hollingsworth aged 67. [Lib. B. fol. 57. Int. 28. fol. 59.] Has known the Province of Pensilvania and County of Newcastle since 1682, but has not been well acquainted with the two lower Counties of Kent and Sussex. Resided in Newcastle County from 1682 to 1701, and then removed to Chester County, where he has resided ever since. First arrived at Newcastle in 1682, and, then, understood from his Father and others, that the Plaintiffs Father was gone down to Maryland to meet Lord Baltimore: and, in a few Days after, saw him return, from thence as 'twas said, in a Riding Habit. At that time there were several Families of Swedes and Dutch, settled upon each side of Christiana Creek as high as the Tide Water flows, and, on the lower side of Brandy-Wine Creek; But there were few. or no Settlements back in the Woods, that he knew of. that being the Year when the Back Woods first began to be settled
