Have you seen this on the following web page?
May 5, 1790. John McGough, Miles McGough, and Thomas McGough, witness the signature (by
his X mark) of Valentine Smith to an assignment by Smith to William Moore of a certificate
of survey of 114 1/4 acres known as Valentine's Delight on the north side of Broad
Creek in Harford county. The land was part of Sword's Delight, leased to John Swords
on August 12, 1760, and adjoined Whiteford's Addition.

While researching Harford County, Maryland patents, I found the following:
Surveyed 14 Aug 1792 for Thomas Johnson
Patented 14 Feb 1795 to James Cooper.
I have not discovered why it was named "Valentine's Delight" in 1792 when it
was surveyed under that name. I wonder if it was a coincidence that it was
patented on 14 Feb.
