Reply #2. Where did you find that information?
The online tree I referred to in my reply #1 has the first generations (1500s-1600s) in the parishes of Chipping and Ribchester and Whalley which are in Lancashire, not far from the border with Yorkshire. The settlement of Dilworth was in Ribchester parish. Dilworth is now part of the town of Longridge, a few miles south of Chipping.  Some later generations were in "P.a" Is that abbreviation for Pennsylvania?
Where were Richard and Jacob born? Where did Richard die?

Found another tree stating Richards father James Dilworth was born in Thornley ,Lancashire -( Thornley and Wheatley -
Thornley comes under Chipping ,Lancashire -

I don't know whether this is an area - or - people with money - but it states James was born in BRADLEY HALL ,Thornley ,Lancashire - and he married Ann Waine 9th May 1680 in Chapelcroft ,Yorkshire
...
https://gw.geneanet.org/judgedredd?n=dilworth&oc=3&p=james

added  James Dilworth was the youngest of 7
DILWORTH, Isabel b: 25 Mar 1656/1657 in Bradley Hall,Lncshr,Engl
DILWORTH Agnes b 1652 jn Bradley Hall ,Lancshr ,Engl ( born during Civil War)
DILWORTH, John b: Abt 1648 in Bradley Hall,Thornley,Lancashire,Eng ( born during Civil War )
DILWORTH, Richard b: 22 Jan 1653/1654 in Bradley Hall,Lncshr,Engl
DILWORTH, Thomas b: Abt 1655 in Bradley Hall,Thornley,Lancashire,Eng
DILWORTH, William b: Abt 1646 in Bradley Hall,Thornley,Lancashire,Eng ( born during Civil War )
DILWORTH James b 1658 in Bradley Hall ,Thornley ,Lancashire ,Engl
the b is for baptised - though some actual dates are not given
...................................................................
not for me to prove as a fact - but these look like money people to me - and probably persecuted by Cromwells troops after the Civil War finished in 1652 - the whole family ups and moves sticks .
.................
would be nice if we could find out what year they all left and who where their parents ?
added those 7 children are on Rootsweb site

Re. reply #5. James Dilworth. According to that tree he emigrated 1682 to Middleton township, Pennsylvania.
There is a note "This person appears to have duplicated relatives".
