About Jean de Lannoy

NOTE (added Nov 14, 2011) - The marriage record (Nov 13, 1596) for "Jan Lano" and "Mary Mahieu" states "Gysbert Lano" as his father, and "Jane Mahieu" as her mother. The place of birth of Jan Lano is spelled "Torckangie" (it is safe to assume that this a phonetic transcription of "Tourcoing").

  • JEAN DE LANNOY, LORD OF MOLEMBAIS, OF SOLRE-LE CHATEAU AND OF COLROY, born 1511, died 25th May, 1560. He was created Knight of the Order of the Golden Fleece in 1546, No. CCVIII., Lord High Chamberlain to Charles V., Emperor of Germany, and of the Holy Roman Empire, 1519-1556, Governor of Hainault and Captain-General of Flanders in 1559. Jean married in 1534, Jeanne de Ligne, Lady of Barbancon, daughter of Louis de Ligne, Lord of Barbancon, by his wife, Marie de Berghes, Heiress. Their only son ;
    • GYSBERT THE HUGUENOT, born 1535, at Tourcoing in Flanders, was baptised in the Roman Catholic Church, but became a Protestant after the Siege of Tourcoing by the Huguenots, commonly so-called in derision after 1560, the word Huguenot signifying Confederate. Gysbert married, in 1558, the Protestant Heiress, Lady Marguerite de Ligne, and removed to Tournai in Hainault, where the public records show that he and his son Jean were residing in 1599. Gysbert's sister, Marie, married Jean de Glymes, Marquis de Berghes, Count of Valhain and Knight of the Order of the Golden Fleece, a nobleman of Brabant. He was created Marquis de Berghes, 23d May, 1533, by Charles V., German-Roman Emperor (H.R.E.) - Gysbert's marriage with the Protestant Heiress and subsequent complete alliance with the Huguenots caused a serious family feud, he being the first Protestant in any branch of his family, and he was disinherited by his father. The estates passed at the death of the latter, to his sister Marie, in 1560, and upon her death, 22d May, 1567, without issue, to her aunt Marie, who, in turn, left them to another niece. Gysbert used the coat-armor of Barbancon, inherited from his mother, and the Lannoy armes of his paternal ancestors. His son ;
      • ' JEAN DE LANNOY, was born 1570 at Tourcoing in Flanders, and died in Leiden 1604. He married in the Walloon Church, Tournai, 13th January, 1596, the Protestant Heiress, Marie le Mahieu, born 1578, died 1650, of a distinguished Brabant family. After the death of her first husband, Jean de Lannoy in 1604, by whom she had three children, two sons and a daughter, Marie married in 1605, her second husband, Jean Pesyn of Tournai. There were no children by this second marriage. In the History of the Town of Leiden, by Frans van Mieris, in Part I., page 323, is a most interesting account, illustrated by a map of the locality, of a home for the Congregation of the French Church, erected on the Pieters Kernhoff, by Jean Pesyn and his wife Marie de Lannoy who died 1650. Also in the Leidsche Lakenhall, a museum in Leiden, are still preserved two oil portraits of Jean Pesyn, two of his wife, Marie de Lannoy and one of her daughter by Jean de Lannoy. Marie established before 1609 a hospice, composed of twelve houses, for the persecuted Huguenots. John Robinson, the famous pastor, there took refuge with his flock in 1611, remaining until his death in 1625. The will of Marie de Lannoy concerning this foundation is now preserved in the public archives of Leiden.

        • PHILIPPE DE LANNOY, born in Leiden 1602, and baptized 6th December, 1603, in the famous Walloon Church. Those present at the ceremony were his parents, Jean and Marie de Lannoy, Antoinette de Lannoy and Marguerite de Lannoy. Philippe de Lannoy left Leiden to join the ship Fortune, the first vessel to follow the Mayflower. It sailed from London, bringing the patent of government from the King, James I., of England.
        • Among the passengers were the youth of nineteen years, Philippe de Lannoy, John Pierce and his thirty-five colonists, including John Winslow, Robert Cushman, Thomas Prince (afterwards Governor), Jonathan Brewster and John Adams. They landed at Plymouth, Mass., 11th November, 1621. Philippe married 19th December, 1634, at Duxborough (now called Duxbury), Mass., Hester Duxborough (also spelled Dewsbury), whose family gave name to the town. His estate (See Winsor's History of Duxbury) was a little north or northwest of that of John Alden, on the north side of Mill Brook, consisting of forty acres, and extending to the sea on the east. Winsor says he was "a man of much nobilitie' ' and that he often served on the "Grand Inquest". ( See Records Plymouth Colony, Vol I, p. 32 et seq.). He served on jury 2d May, 1637; he volunteered for the Pequot War, 7th June 1637, and fitted out fifty-six men at his own expense for service in that war; was granted forty acres in Duxbury, 2d October, 1637. He was one of the original proprietors of Middleborough, Mass. (See History of Middleborough, Mass. , in Vol, 3, New England Historical and General Register). In 1645, he was one of the original grantees of Bridgewater, Mass. On 7th March, 1652, he purchased 800 acres in Dartmouth, which were formally transferred to him 29th November, 1652. He died in Bridgewater, 1681, leaving a valuable estate and a large collection of books. For full account, see "The Genealogical History and Alliances of the American House of Delano 1621-1899".

  • DELANO FAMILY. The descendants of the Pilgram ancestor, Philip Delano, of Plymouth, have the satisfaction of tracing their ancestry in the old country for a dozen centuries. They have established the full right to bear the arms of the Delano family, which could be of no better stock and which embraces a host of distinguished men in its numbers.
  • The name is drived from the town of Lannoy, a few miles from Isla, now Lille, France. Away back in A. D., 863, this town was called Alnetum, later L'Annois and Lannoy. The meaning of the word is unknown. It has been spelled L'Annois, L'Annoe, L'Aulmais, L'Aulnoy, but more often Alnetum. Today Lannoy is a small manugacturing town, seven miles from Lille, with a population at the last census 1,904. The first Lord of Lannoy, progenitor of the family, was Hugues de Lannoy, mentioned as a knight of Tournai d'Auclin in 1096. On the same list was Simon do Alneto. A charte des Chanoines (cannons) de St. Pierre a Lille mentions Gilbert de Lannoy in 1171 and Hugues de Lannoy is mentioned in 1186. It is impossible to present in this place an extended history of the family in its early days in France. That has been done with remarkable care and apparent accuracy in the genealogy, which is authority for all said here about the origin and early history of the family. There seems to be no flaw in the following pedigree in the direct male line of the American emigrant, Philip Delano or Delanoy.
