I have a Richard Valentine who had a daughter Ann, I don't have who she married and my Richard was born 1619 and died in 1685. Richard is from Eccles Parish, Lancaster, England. He married a Deborah - they settled at Hampstand, Long Island, New York about 1644, He was 25 years old. His children's names are Ephraim who was born 1668, who married Rachel March 29, 1737 in Queens County, Long Island. William born 1665, Ann (no date), another William born 1655, Jonas born 1660 married Grace, Deborah born 1657 married William Foster in 1674, Richard, born 1610, married Sarah Halstead on March 20, 1725. I have more but not sure if this is who you are looking for. Please let me know if these people are part of our family tree and send me as much information as you can and I will reciprocate. Thank you

Attn: Dorothy
Thanks for the sounds like the same family. I have two possible lines:
1) Ann Valentine b. 1612, Lancs. Eng; d. 1675 Newtown Queens, NY; mar. Michael Miles/Moyles Williams ?? could this be Richard's sister?
2) Margaret Valentine b. abt 1660, don't know where; mar. Thomas Cheeseman abt 1680 presumably in NY as that's where the Cheeseman's were from..
I also have FOSTER that works in there somewhere..I don't recall Halstead but I'll delighted to get what you have. Jerri

I have a Deborah that married a William Foster in 1876, and a Sarah Halsted that married a Richard Valentine in Hempstead, Long Island on November 20, 1727. They had a daugher named Hannah who married a George Pine. Please let me know if this helps and if it is the same family I will send you all of my information and you can send me yours. I am working on my family tree and tracing as many people as possible. I am also looking for the Schaeffer family that settled in Ohio. Any information will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Richard Valentine from Eccles, Lancashire, England

My family tree is intact back to a John Valentine who was married to a Mary Lynde (b 1680, d 1732) in 1702. John died in Boston in 1724. His ancestors can be approximately traced back to a Richard Valentine who died about 1520 in Lancaster, England. This Richard was married to Anne Hopwood. There was a family estate called Bencliffe Hall. They had a son Thomas who died about 1550. It is believed Thomas had a son Richard (dob and death unknown) who had a son Thomas who died in 1609. This latter Thomas married Dorothy Malbon. Thomas and Dorothy are thought to have had a son John who married Margerie Sleighe in 1626. John died in 1680.

this info comes from a book "Valentines in
America" written by T.W. Valentine in 1874.
There is a little confusion about who was the
first Valentine in America from Eccles,
Lancashire, England. Was it John Valentine,
born in 1676 or John Valentine, born in 1643,
both of whom ended up in Boston. Any help in
straightening this out will be appreciated.

Sorry I can't answer your question, but I have one for you. Does this book mention a William Valentine who was married to Sarah Martin? This is my line and I have no other info other than that their son was William b. 1783 and married Elizabeth Moore. What line are you researching?
