About Philippe de Lannoy

French by ancestry, Dutch by birth, and English by association, Philippe de Lannoy earned for himself the respect of his English neighbors and the pride of his American descendants.

Philippe de Lannoy (1602-1681), who was also known as Philippe de La Noye and whose family name was anglicized to Delano, was born in Leiden on December 7, 1602 of religious refugee parents Jan/Jean de Lano/de Lannoy (ca. 1570 Tourcoing, France-1604) and Mary/Marie Mahieu (ca. 1580 Lille, France-1650). François Coek (Pilgrim Francis Cooke) appeared as a baptismal witness for him on 6 November or 6 December 1603 (New Style) at the Waloon Church, Leiden, Holland. Philip died between 22 August 1681 (date of memorandum serving as will) and 4 March 1681/2 (date of inventory). His burial site is not known.

Married:

  1. on 19 Dec 1634, Plymouth, Plymouth, MA to Hester Dewsbery Delano (____ - 1653). Her parents are not known.
  2. on 17 Jan 1653 to Mary Pontus Delano (1622 - ____). She was the daughter of William Pontus and Wybra Hansen and the widow of James Glass.

Children of Hester Dewsberry and Philip Delano:

  1. Mary (1635-)
  2. Philip (1637-)
  3. Thomas (1642-1723)
  4. John (~1644-)
  5. Jonathan (~1648-)

Children of Mary Pontus and Philip Delano:

  1. Jane (~1655-)
  2. Esther (~1657-)
  3. Samuel (1659-1728)
  4. Rebecca (~1661-)

It is said that Philip was a passenger on the Speedwell which turned back and then came on the Fortune the second Pilgrim ship, which arrived in Massachusetts on November 9, 1621 ("Great Migration Begins", by Anderson).

Notes

Documents

T.N. Schelhaas letter

  • 1) Re re Marie Mahieu painting: States that painting often claimed to be of Marie Mahieu (mother of Philippe Delano/ Philippe de Lannoy) is NOT her. Instead, the painting is of Marie de Lannoy wife of Jan Pesijn, the founder of the Jan Pesijnhof.
  • 2) Re Marriage of Jan Lano (Jean de Lannoy) - George English points out an error in this letter: The primary source (Leiden Judicial Archives nr. 89 vol.C., folio 142) actually reads January 13. 1596: "Jan Lano, (missed out from letter ‘bachelor of Torckangie (Tourcoing), accompanied by Piere de Bu and Gijsbert de Lano, bridegroom’s father with Mary Mahieu’) unmarried, from Lille (N. France) accompanied by Jane (Jeanne) Mahieu, her mother and Anthonette Morth, her acquaintance".

On 8 Feb. 1609 Jan Carwer (John Carver) and his first wife Marie de Lannoy were admitted to the Walloon Church. It is suggested that Philip Delano very likely was the nephew, not only of Francis Cooke, but probably of John Carver who became the first governor of Plymouth Colony.1 "It is possible to see a strong Walloon connection in the Pilgrim congregation."

     ASSOCIATIONS: In the land division of 1623, MOSES SIMONSON was joined with PHILIP DELANO in a grant of land, suggesting that they may both have come from Leiden. Also in the land division of 1623, and in the tax lists of 1633 and 1634, EDWARD BUMPAS is adjacent to PHILIP DELANO. The two men at a later date held adjacent land [PCR 1:59, 66, 67]. The last three sons of Bumpas were Philip, Thomas and Samuel, names also used by Delano. These items suggest that Edward Bumpas came from Leiden with Delano in 1621, and that the two may have had some association there before that date.
     COMMENTS: In a deposition of 1641 "Phillip De Lanoe of Duxbury planter" stated that he was "aged about thirty-six years"; he at that time owned a boat which he used in catching mackerel [Lechford 420].
     On 3 March 1676/7 "Phillp Delano Senr" gave his age as "74 years or there about" [MD 14:64, citing PCLR 6:93].
     Some sources claim that Philip Delano lived in Middleborough and Bridgewater, but this merely misinterprets his holdings of lands granted in those locations.
     The number of children born to Philip Delano and their allocation between his two wives remains a vexed problem, due to the vagueness of his "will" and the almost total lack of chronological checkpoints among his children and grandchildren. In the settlement of his estate six children are identified by name: Philip, Thomas, John, Samuel, Jane and Rebecca [MD 11:250-51]. Several additional statements assist in our analysis: Samuel was the "only son to the relict of the deceased"; house and land given to "his 3 eldest ... and John hath 25 acres more at Namassakett"; five shillings apiece to "his seven eldest"; and at wife's death moveables to "his 4 youngest children."
     Three additional names are known from other records: Mary (who predeceased her father, without leaving issue), Esther and Jonathan. The bequest to the "seven eldest children" implies eight or more living in 1682, and the six named in the agreement, with Jonathan and Esther added, brings us to this number.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philippe_DelanoThe progenitor of the Delano family in the Americas was Philippe de Lannoy [1] whose family name was anglicized to Delano. The 19-year-old Pilgrim of Flemish descent arrived at Plymouth, Massachusetts on November 9, 1621 on the second Pilgrim ship, Fortune. His descendants include Philip Delano Jr., Frederic Adrian Delano, Jonathan Delano and Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Ulysses S. Grant, Calvin Coolidge, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Robert Redfield, Captain Paul Delano, and Alan B. Shepard. Delano family forebears include the Pilgrim who chartered the Mayflower, seven of its passengers and three signers of the Mayflower Compact.

Philippe Delano (De Lannoy)

Philippe de Lannoy was born in Leiden on December 7, 1602 of religious refugee parents Jan Lano, born Jean de Lannoy in 1575 at Tourcoing, and Marie le Mahieu of Lille both in the northern France. His parents were betrothed in the Leiden Walloon Church on January 13, 1596. After his father died in 1604 at Leiden, his mother married Robert Mannoo of Namur on February 18, 1605. Philippe's grandfather, Guilbert de Lannoy of Tourcoing, was an early Protestant who left the mainland with his family for England probably in the late 1570s and then, in 1591, moved to Leiden, a safe harbor for religious dissidents. The le Mahieus arrived in Leiden from England around the same time. The family name de Lannoy probably derives from the town of Lannoy (a name derived from the Latin alnetum and French “l’aunaie” meaning “alder plantation”), near Lille. There is no evidence to support claims that Philippe's father descended from the noble de Lannoys.

[edit] Journey to America

Philippe de Lannoy's family was affiliated to the Leiden Walloon Church, indicating they were Francophones or speakers of a French dialect. While the timing and extent of his contact with the John Robinson Pilgrim congregation in Leiden is unknown, Philippe eventually joined their voyage to the American continent.

The Leiden Pilgrims bought the Speedwell. Although his name is not on the passenger list, Philippe is believed by a contemporary scholar to have joined his uncle Francis Cooke (husband of his mother's sister, Hester le Mahieu) and young cousin John Cooke on the first stage of the voyage from Delfshaven to Southampton to meet the Mayflower. They gathered in England with other Pilgrims and hireling colonizers to stage the onward voyage with the two ships. Barely into the Atlantic crossing, the Speedwell began to leak. This leakage forced the convoy to abort the voyage and return to England twice. After the second return, Mayflower proceeded alone. Speedwell was sold. Ten of its passengers, among them Francis and John Cooke, joined the Mayflower. The remaining Speedwell passengers remained behind. Philippe joined a replacement ship, the "Fortune", which sailed for Plymouth Colony in early July 1621, arriving on November 9. It is possible that Philippe went separately to England rather than on Speedwell.

[edit] Life in America

Philippe de Lannoy joined and resided with his uncle Francis Cooke and cousin Robert who had arrived on the Mayflower the year before. In 1623, he received a land grant in Plymouth but sold this property in 1627 and moved to Duxborough where in 1634 he married Hester Dewsbury (1613–1657). There, Delano prospered and was part of the group who organized the construction of highways and bridges around the village.

He served in the Pequot War of 1637 as a volunteer. In 1652 he joined with 35 other colonists to purchase with trading goods what was then called Dartmouth Township from Massasoit, the leader of the Wampanoag who drew the boundaries. It was sold to the Religious Society of Friends or Quakers, who wished to live outside the stringent religious laws of the Puritans. Philippe gave his portion of the acquisition, amounting to 800 acres (3.2 km²), to his son Jonathan Delano.[3] Following the death of his wife, he married a second time to Mary Pontus. He died on August 22, 1681 in Bridgewater, Massachusetts. A great many of his offspring would become prominent mariners, whalers, and shipbuilders. The later commercial success of some Delanos was such that they would become part of the Massachusetts aristocracy, sometimes referred to as one of the Boston Brahmins (the "First Families of Boston").

[edit] Descendants

His son Jonathan married Mercy Warren, granddaughter of Mayflower passenger Richard Warren; among their direct descendants are the author Laura Ingalls Wilder, President Ulysses S. Grant, President Calvin Coolidge anthropologist Robert Redfield, astronaut Alan B. Shepard, and the poet Conrad Potter Aiken.

Over time, family members migrated to other states including Michigan, Maine, New York, Ohio, Virginia, Vermont and as far away as Chile where today descendants of Captain Paul Delano are numerous and prominent. From the New York clan, Sara Delano married James Roosevelt and their only child, Franklin Delano Roosevelt became President of the United States.

The Delano name is also found across America where several places have been named in honor of a family member:

   * Delano, California named for Columbus Delano
   * Delano, Minnesota named for Francis R. Delano
   * Delano, Pennsylvania and Delano Township, Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania named for Warren Delano II

Philip came over on the ship "The Fortune" in 1621.

Walloon is a religious church group.

A good description of Walloon is found in the excellent foreward by Jeremy Dupertuis Bangs in the Francis Cooke genealogy. (MF 12:v) "French—speaking Protestants of Belgium who lived in the southern provinces collectivley known as Wallonia, the land of the Walloons."

In 1578 the Walloon border areas were captured by the Catholic army and by 1585 thousands of Huguenots had fled to England or north to Zeeland and Holland. Here the Flemish and Walloon immigrants provided poorly paid industrial labor, revolutionizing the weaving industry in Holland by introducing new skills which had been developed in the southern towns, such as Lille (Lille, formerly a part of Walloon Flanders, now lies in northern France.) Among the refugees were Jan de Lannoy from Tourcoing (another translation of the same material calls him of Lille) and Marie Mahieu from Lille.

On 13 Jan. 1596 Peter du Bu and Gysbert Lano, the groom's father, were witnesses at the betrothal of Jan de Lano and Mary Mahieu. Only two children are recorded to this couple as the baptismal registers of the Walloon Church begin in the year l599 and there may have been older siblings of Jenne, bpt. 6 Nov. 1601 and Philippe, bpt. 6 Nov. 1603.

Jan Lano/Jean de Lannoy d. bet. Nov. 1603 and Feb. 1605, for his widow remarried on 6 March 1605 with the woolcomber Robert Mannoo, widower of Simone Pachette.

Francois Coek (Francis Cook) appeared as a baptismal witness for Philippe, son of Jan de Lannoy and Marie Mahieu. On 8 Feb. 1609 Jan Carwer (John Carver) and his first wife Marie de Lannoy were admitted to the Walloon Church. It is suggested that Philip Delano very likely was the nephew, not only of Francis Cooke, but probably of John Carver who became the first governor of Plymouth Colony.' "It is possible to see a strong Walloon connection in the Pilgrim congregation."

Philip m. (1) Plymouth 19 Dec. 1634 Hester Dew(e)sbury, parents and birth unknown; d. prob. Duxbury bef. 1653 when a deed was signed by second wife Mary.

Philip m. (2) bet. 4 March 1652 (called widow in father's estate inventory) and 17 Jan. 1653/4 (deed) Mary (Pontus) Glass ; b. ca. 1625 if ae 20 when she first married ; d. after 5 July 1682 as she is mentioned in the settlement of Philip's estate ; dau. of William and Wybra (Hanson) Pontus and widow of James Glass. James and Mary (Pontus) Glass had 4 daus: Hannah Glass, b.1647, d. young; Wybra Glass, b. 1649 m. Joseph Bumpus; Hannah Glass, b. 1651 m. Isaac Billington; and Mary Glass, b. 1652 m. Samuel Hunt.

On 1 March 1676/7 Philip Delano Sr., "aged 74 yrs, or there about" and Mary his wife, took oath that bef. "he married Mary Glass ye relict of James Glass deceased that she ye sd Mary gave all her lands unto her three children Mary, Wybery, and Hannah equally alike."

Philip Delano served on the Plymouth Grand and Petit juries, on the committee to view "the hay grounds," as a surveyor, and volunteered to serve in the Pequot War. In 1633 "Phillip Delanoy" was in the first list of Plymouth Colony Freemen.

In 1623 Philip Delano was granted an acre of land in Plymouth as "passenger on the Fortune" ; the sale of this acre to Stephen Deane in 1627 was the first recorded land sale in the colony.

On 2 Oct. 1637 Philip Delano was granted forty acres, bounded by land of Mr. John Alden lying on the south side, the sea on the east side, and the lands of Edward Bumpasse on the west side.

Philip Delano is on the list of names of Purchasers of Dartmouth who on 7 March 1652 met at Plymouth to make allotment of their shares which had been purchased from the Indians and in 1662 Philip is on the list as being one of "the first borne children of this government" to receive land in Middleborough.

There is no probate record for Philip Delano. An inventory taken and exhibited to the Court on 4 March 1681/2 on the "oath of his son Samuel" mentions only the personal estate with no real estate involved. On 5 July 1682 Thomas and Samuel (only son of the second wife) Delano agreed to follow what they knew to be the intent of their father "do mutually agree to pursue the Reall Will of the Deceased according to a Memorandum." A comparison was made bet. 2 memoranda, - - one dated 22 Aug. 1681 and the other "now drawn." Administration on the estate of "Phillip Delano of Duxborrow" was granted on 7 July 1682 to Samuel Delano.

Only six of Philip's children are named in the memorandum: Philip, Thomas, John, Samuel, Jane, and Rebecca. His wife (not named) was to have a cow and the free use of 1/3 of the orchard and land, both upland and meadow, during her life. Five shillings apiece were bequeathed to his seven eldest children; "two (viz) - Phillip and Thomas - have received theire proportions." All the moveables at his wife's death were to be disposed of amongst his four youngest children.

CHILDREN:

      With first wife
      i       MARY, b. say 1635; m. Plymouth 29 November 1655 Jonathan Dunham [PCR 8:17]; she d. soon and had no children [TAG 36:243-49].
      ii       PHILIP, b. say 1637; m. say 1670 Elizabeth Sampson, daughter of Abraham and _____ (Nash) Sampson (called Elizabeth Delano in her grandfather Nash's will [NEHGR 52:76; TAG 15:165-67]).
      iii       THOMAS, b. say 1639; m. by 1667 Rebecca Alden, daughter of JOHN ALDEN ("Thomas Delanoy, and his now wife, for committing carnal copulation before marriage, fined" at October Court, 1667 [PCR 8:122]).
      iv       ESTHER, b. say 1641; on 1 October 1661 Abraham Pierce Jr. confessed that he had falsely accused "Rebeckah Alden and Hester Delanoy" of being pregnant [PCR 4:7]; probably m. (1) by about 1670 Samuel Samson, son of Abraham and _____ (Nash) Samson, and if so m. (2) by 1679 John Soule [Muriel Curtis Cushing, Philip Delano of the "Fortune" 1621 ... (Plymouth 1999), pp. 4-5 and arguments presented there].
      v       JOHN, b. say 1644; m. by about 1679 Mary Weston, daughter of Edmund Weston of Duxbury [NGSQ 71:41-43].
      vi       JONATHAN, b. about 1648 (d. Dartmouth 28 December 1720 in 73rd year); m. Dartmouth 28 February 1677/8 Mercy Warren, daughter of Nathaniel Warren and granddaughter of RICHARD WARREN [MFIP Warren 35-36].
      With second wife
      vii       JANE, b. say 1655; living 1682 (settlement of her father's estate); no further record.
      viii       REBECCA, b. about 1657 (d. Plymouth 7 April 1709 "aged 52 years" [Bradford Kingman, Epitaphs from Burial Hill, Plymouth, Massachusetts (Brookline 1892), p. 9]); m. Plymouth 28 December 1686 John Churchill [PVR 85].
      ix       SAMUEL, b. say 1659 [adult 1682]; m. by 1679 Elizabeth Standish, daughter of Alexander Standish (in his will of 21 February 1701/2 Alexander named "my daughter Elizabeth Delano the wife of Samuel Delano" [MD 12:101]).

ASSOCIATIONS: In the land division of 1623, MOSES SIMONSON was joined with PHILIP DELANO in a grant of land, suggesting that they may both have come from Leiden. Also in the land division of 1623, and in the tax lists of 1633 and 1634, EDWARD BUMPAS is adjacent to PHILIP DELANO. The two men at a later date held adjacent land [PCR 1:59, 66, 67]. The last three sons of Bumpas were Philip, Thomas and Samuel, names also used by Delano. These items suggest that Edward Bumpas came from Leiden with Delano in 1621, and that the two may have had some association there before that date.

COMMENTS: In a deposition of 1641 "Phillip De Lanoe of Duxbury planter" stated that he was "aged about thirty-six years"; he at that time owned a boat which he used in catching mackerel [Lechford 420].

      On 3 March 1676/7 "Phillp Delano Senr" gave his age as "74 years or there about" [MD 14:64, citing PCLR 6:93].
      Some sources claim that Philip Delano lived in Middleborough and Bridgewater, but this merely misinterprets his holdings of lands granted in those locations.
      The number of children born to Philip Delano and their allocation between his two wives remains a vexed problem, due to the vagueness of his "will" and the almost total lack of chronological checkpoints among his children and grandchildren. In the settlement of his estate six children are identified by name: Philip, Thomas, John, Samuel, Jane and Rebecca [MD 11:250-51]. Several additional statements assist in our analysis: Samuel was the "only son to the relict of the deceased"; house and land given to "his 3 eldest ... and John hath 25 acres more at Namassakett"; five shillings apiece to "his seven eldest"; and at wife's death moveables to "his 4 youngest children."
      Three additional names are known from other records: Mary (who predeceased her father, without leaving issue), Esther and Jonathan. The bequest to the "seven eldest children" implies eight or more living in 1682, and the six named in the agreement, with Jonathan and Esther added, brings us to this number.

When the Separatists (later called Pilgrims) left England in about 1608 (because of religious persecution) they went to Holland. They were befriended by Marie de la Noye, a widow, and lived on her estate. Later when they returned to England and came to America on the Mayflower, her son, Phillipe, who had grown up with the English children left home and came to America in 1621 on the ship Fortune.

Documents T.N. Schelhaas letter

1) Re re Marie Mahieu painting: States that painting often claimed to be of Marie Mahieu (mother of Philippe Delano/ Philippe de Lannoy) is NOT her. Instead, the painting is of Marie de Lannoy wife of Jan Pesijn, the founder of the Jan Pesijnhof.

2) Re Marriage of Jan Lano (Jean de Lannoy) - George English points out an error in this letter: The primary source (Leiden Judicial Archives nr. 89 vol.C., folio 142) actually reads January 13. 1596: "Jan Lano, (missed out from letter ‘bachelor of Torckangie (Tourcoing), accompanied by Piere de Bu and Gijsbert de Lano, bridegroom’s father with Mary Mahieu’) unmarried, from Lille (N. France) accompanied by Jane (Jeanne) Mahieu, her mother and Anthonette Morth, her acquaintance".

Notes

   * Notes from Jonathan Delano GHAAHD:
     "French by ancestry, Dutch by birth, and English by association, Philippe de Lannoy earned for himself the respect of his English neighbors and the pride of his American descendants"
     Notes from: Ralph V. Wood, Jr. with preface by Dr. Jeremy Dupertuis Bangs "Francis Cooke of the Mayflower" Vol 12 General Society of Mayflower Descendants Picton Press 1996:
     "Francois Coek (Francis Cook) appeared as a baptismal witness for Philippe, son of Jan de Lannoy and Marie Mahieu. On 8 Feb. 1609 Jan Carwer (John Carver) and his first wife Marie de Lannoy were admitted to the Walloon Church. It is suggested that Philip Delano very likely was the nephew, not only of Francis Cooke, but probably of John Carver who became the first governor of Plymouth Colony.1 "It is possible to see a strong Walloon connection in the Pilgrim congregation."

On 17 January 1653, Phillip Delano of Duxburrow and Mary his wife sold to John Church~ill of Plymouth a parcel of meadow sometimes the meadow of William Pontus and James Glasse deceased, being about an acre and a half [MD 5:92-93, citing PCLR 2:1:93].
     On 3 December 1659, Phillip Delano Sr. with the consent of Mary his wife sold one half his purchase lands at Coaksett or Cushena or both to William Earle [MD 11:249, citing PCLR 2:2:41]. On 13 December 1660 "Phillip Delanoy of Duxburrow ... with the consent of my wife" sold to Nicholas Byram of Weymouth "my whole right of lands in the town of Bridgewater ... viz: a full and complete purchase of uplands, meadows and swamps that is or shall be laid out or divided or remain in common" [PCLR 3:25]. On 5 June 1667 Philip Delano of Duxbury, husbandman, sold to John Russell Sr. of Dartmouth, yeoman, one-half share of the lands at Dartmouth "granted unto the said Phillip Delano ... as a purchaser or old comer" [PCLR 3:83].
     On 11 April 1674 Philip Delano Sr. of Duxbury, planter, in consideration of "love and natural affection" granted "unto my true and natural son John Delano my lot of five and twenty acres at Namassakett lying upon Teticutt River in Middleborough with three acres of upland lying in Duxburrow" [PCLR 3:330]. On the same day Philip Delano Sr. of Duxbury, planter, granted to "Thomas Delano his true and natural son the one-half of his hundred acre lot at Namassakett in the town of Middleborough, the lot to be divided betwixt his brother and him, Phillip Delano and him," also one-half the meadow land in Middleborough, one-half of five acres of meadow land at the beach lying on the southside of Plymouth and three acres of meadow lying at the Mill River" [PCLR 3:331].
     On 7 July 1682 administration on the estate of "Phillip Delano of Duxburrow" was granted to Samuel Delano [PCR6:91].

     On 5 July 1682 a comparison was made between two memoranda purporting to reflect the intent of Philip Delano for the disposal of his estate, one dated 22 August 1681, the other "now drawn" 5 July 1682. The merged intent was agreed to mean, to "his three eldest [sons] and each of [them] know their proportions, and John hath twenty five acres more at Namassakett"' to Samuel a horse, cow, two steers, chain and cart; to Jane one cow and heifer; to Rebeckah a yearling heifer; his wife a cow and free use of one third of the orchard and land during her life; to his three sons Phillip Thomas and Samuel a yoke of old oxen to improve "and when their service is done, to revert wholly to Phillip and Thomas"; Thomas executor; saw and wedges to Samuel; 5s. each to his "seven eldest children, of which seven, two, viz, Phillip and Thomas, have received their proportions"; at wife's death all moveables to his four youngest children [MD 11:250-51, citing PCPR 4:2:120].

     ASSOCIATIONS: In the land division of 1623, MOSES SIMONSON was joined with PHILIP DELANO in a grant of land, suggesting that they may both have come from Leiden. Also in the land division of 1623, and in the tax lists of 1633 and 1634, EDWARD BUMPAS is adjacent to PHILIP DELANO. The two men at a later date held adjacent land [PCR 1:59, 66, 67]. The last three sons of Bumpas were Philip, Thomas and Samuel, names also used by Delano. These items suggest that Edward Bumpas came from Leiden with Delano in 1621, and that the two may have had some association there before that date.
     COMMENTS: In a deposition of 1641 "Phillip De Lanoe of Duxbury planter" stated that he was "aged about thirty-six years"; he at that time owned a boat which he used in catching mackerel [Lechford 420].
     On 3 March 1676/7 "Phillp Delano Senr" gave his age as "74 years or there about" [MD 14:64, citing PCLR 6:93].
     Some sources claim that Philip Delano lived in Middleborough and Bridgewater, but this merely misinterprets his holdings of lands granted in those locations.
     The number of children born to Philip Delano and their allocation between his two wives remains a vexed problem, due to the vagueness of his "will" and the almost total lack of chronological checkpoints among his children and grandchildren. In the settlement of his estate six children are identified by name: Philip, Thomas, John, Samuel, Jane and Rebecca [MD 11:250-51]. Several additional statements assist in our analysis: Samuel was the "only son to the relict of the deceased"; house and land given to "his 3 eldest ... and John hath 25 acres more at Namassakett"; five shillings apiece to "his seven eldest"; and at wife's death moveables to "his 4 youngest children."
     Three additional names are known from other records: Mary (who predeceased her father, without leaving issue), Esther and Jonathan. The bequest to the "seven eldest children" implies eight or more living in 1682, and the six named in the agreement, with Jonathan and Esther added, brings us to this number.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philippe_DelanoThe progenitor of the Delano family in the Americas was Philippe de Lannoy [1] whose family name was anglicized to Delano. The 19-year-old Pilgrim of Flemish descent arrived at Plymouth, Massachusetts on November 9, 1621 on the second Pilgrim ship, Fortune. His descendants include Philip Delano Jr., Frederic Adrian Delano, Jonathan Delano and Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Ulysses S. Grant, Calvin Coolidge, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Robert Redfield, Captain Paul Delano, and Alan B. Shepard. Delano family forebears include the Pilgrim who chartered the Mayflower, seven of its passengers and three signers of the Mayflower Compact.

Philippe Delano (De Lannoy)

Philippe de Lannoy was born in Leiden on December 7, 1602 of religious refugee parents Jan Lano, born Jean de Lannoy in 1575 at Tourcoing, and Marie le Mahieu of Lille both in the northern France. His parents were betrothed in the Leiden Walloon Church on January 13, 1596. After his father died in 1604 at Leiden, his mother married Robert Mannoo of Namur on February 18, 1605. Philippe's grandfather, Guilbert de Lannoy of Tourcoing, was an early Protestant who left the mainland with his family for England probably in the late 1570s and then, in 1591, moved to Leiden, a safe harbor for religious dissidents. The le Mahieus arrived in Leiden from England around the same time. The family name de Lannoy probably derives from the town of Lannoy (a name derived from the Latin alnetum and French “l’aunaie” meaning “alder plantation”), near Lille. There is no evidence to support claims that Philippe's father descended from the noble de Lannoys.

[edit] Journey to America

Philippe de Lannoy's family was affiliated to the Leiden Walloon Church, indicating they were Francophones or speakers of a French dialect. While the timing and extent of his contact with the John Robinson Pilgrim congregation in Leiden is unknown, Philippe eventually joined their voyage to the American continent.

The Leiden Pilgrims bought the Speedwell. Although his name is not on the passenger list, Philippe is believed by a contemporary scholar to have joined his uncle Francis Cooke (husband of his mother's sister, Hester le Mahieu) and young cousin John Cooke on the first stage of the voyage from Delfshaven to Southampton to meet the Mayflower. They gathered in England with other Pilgrims and hireling colonizers to stage the onward voyage with the two ships. Barely into the Atlantic crossing, the Speedwell began to leak. This leakage forced the convoy to abort the voyage and return to England twice. After the second return, Mayflower proceeded alone. Speedwell was sold. Ten of its passengers, among them Francis and John Cooke, joined the Mayflower. The remaining Speedwell passengers remained behind. Philippe joined a replacement ship, the "Fortune", which sailed for Plymouth Colony in early July 1621, arriving on November 9. It is possible that Philippe went separately to England rather than on Speedwell.

[edit] Life in America

Philippe de Lannoy joined and resided with his uncle Francis Cooke and cousin Robert who had arrived on the Mayflower the year before. In 1623, he received a land grant in Plymouth but sold this property in 1627 and moved to Duxborough where in 1634 he married Hester Dewsbury (1613–1657). There, Delano prospered and was part of the group who organized the construction of highways and bridges around the village.

He served in the Pequot War of 1637 as a volunteer. In 1652 he joined with 35 other colonists to purchase with trading goods what was then called Dartmouth Township from Massasoit, the leader of the Wampanoag who drew the boundaries. It was sold to the Religious Society of Friends or Quakers, who wished to live outside the stringent religious laws of the Puritans. Philippe gave his portion of the acquisition, amounting to 800 acres (3.2 km²), to his son Jonathan Delano.[3] Following the death of his wife, he married a second time to Mary Pontus. He died on August 22, 1681 in Bridgewater, Massachusetts. A great many of his offspring would become prominent mariners, whalers, and shipbuilders. The later commercial success of some Delanos was such that they would become part of the Massachusetts aristocracy, sometimes referred to as one of the Boston Brahmins (the "First Families of Boston").

[edit] Descendants

His son Jonathan married Mercy Warren, granddaughter of Mayflower passenger Richard Warren; among their direct descendants are the author Laura Ingalls Wilder, President Ulysses S. Grant, President Calvin Coolidge anthropologist Robert Redfield, astronaut Alan B. Shepard, and the poet Conrad Potter Aiken.

Over time, family members migrated to other states including Michigan, Maine, New York, Ohio, Virginia, Vermont and as far away as Chile where today descendants of Captain Paul Delano are numerous and prominent. From the New York clan, Sara Delano married James Roosevelt and their only child, Franklin Delano Roosevelt became President of the United States.

The Delano name is also found across America where several places have been named in honor of a family member:

   * Delano, California named for Columbus Delano
   * Delano, Minnesota named for Francis R. Delano
   * Delano, Pennsylvania and Delano Township, Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania named for Warren Delano II

Some notable members of the Delano family in America:

Philip came over on the ship "The Fortune" in 1621.

Walloon is a religious church group.

A good description of Walloon is found in the excellent foreward by Jeremy Dupertuis Bangs in the Francis Cooke genealogy. (MF 12:v) "French—speaking Protestants of Belgium who lived in the southern provinces collectivley known as Wallonia, the land of the Walloons."

In 1578 the Walloon border areas were captured by the Catholic army and by 1585 thousands of Huguenots had fled to England or north to Zeeland and Holland. Here the Flemish and Walloon immigrants provided poorly paid industrial labor, revolutionizing the weaving industry in Holland by introducing new skills which had been developed in the southern towns, such as Lille (Lille, formerly a part of Walloon Flanders, now lies in northern France.) Among the refugees were Jan de Lannoy from Tourcoing (another translation of the same material calls him of Lille) and Marie Mahieu from Lille.

On 13 Jan. 1596 Peter du Bu and Gysbert Lano, the groom's father, were witnesses at the betrothal of Jan de Lano and Mary Mahieu. Only two children are recorded to this couple as the baptismal registers of the Walloon Church begin in the year l599 and there may have been older siblings of Jenne, bpt. 6 Nov. 1601 and Philippe, bpt. 6 Nov. 1603.

Jan Lano/Jean de Lannoy d. bet. Nov. 1603 and Feb. 1605, for his widow remarried on 6 March 1605 with the woolcomber Robert Mannoo, widower of Simone Pachette.

Francois Coek (Francis Cook) appeared as a baptismal witness for Philippe, son of Jan de Lannoy and Marie Mahieu. On 8 Feb. 1609 Jan Carwer (John Carver) and his first wife Marie de Lannoy were admitted to the Walloon Church. It is suggested that Philip Delano very likely was the nephew, not only of Francis Cooke, but probably of John Carver who became the first governor of Plymouth Colony.' "It is possible to see a strong Walloon connection in the Pilgrim congregation."

Philip m. (1) Plymouth 19 Dec. 1634 Hester Dew(e)sbury, parents and birth unknown; d. prob. Duxbury bef. 1653 when a deed was signed by second wife Mary.

Philip m. (2) bet. 4 March 1652 (called widow in father's estate inventory) and 17 Jan. 1653/4 (deed) Mary (Pontus) Glass ; b. ca. 1625 if ae 20 when she first married ; d. after 5 July 1682 as she is mentioned in the settlement of Philip's estate ; dau. of William and Wybra (Hanson) Pontus and widow of James Glass. James and Mary (Pontus) Glass had 4 daus: Hannah Glass, b.1647, d. young; Wybra Glass, b. 1649 m. Joseph Bumpus; Hannah Glass, b. 1651 m. Isaac Billington; and Mary Glass, b. 1652 m. Samuel Hunt.

On 1 March 1676/7 Philip Delano Sr., "aged 74 yrs, or there about" and Mary his wife, took oath that bef. "he married Mary Glass ye relict of James Glass deceased that she ye sd Mary gave all her lands unto her three children Mary, Wybery, and Hannah equally alike."

Philip Delano served on the Plymouth Grand and Petit juries, on the committee to view "the hay grounds," as a surveyor, and volunteered to serve in the Pequot War. In 1633 "Phillip Delanoy" was in the first list of Plymouth Colony Freemen.

In 1623 Philip Delano was granted an acre of land in Plymouth as "passenger on the Fortune" ; the sale of this acre to Stephen Deane in 1627 was the first recorded land sale in the colony.

On 2 Oct. 1637 Philip Delano was granted forty acres, bounded by land of Mr. John Alden lying on the south side, the sea on the east side, and the lands of Edward Bumpasse on the west side.

Philip Delano is on the list of names of Purchasers of Dartmouth who on 7 March 1652 met at Plymouth to make allotment of their shares which had been purchased from the Indians and in 1662 Philip is on the list as being one of "the first borne children of this government" to receive land in Middleborough.

There is no probate record for Philip Delano. An inventory taken and exhibited to the Court on 4 March 1681/2 on the "oath of his son Samuel" mentions only the personal estate with no real estate involved. On 5 July 1682 Thomas and Samuel (only son of the second wife) Delano agreed to follow what they knew to be the intent of their father "do mutually agree to pursue the Reall Will of the Deceased according to a Memorandum." A comparison was made bet. 2 memoranda, - - one dated 22 Aug. 1681 and the other "now drawn." Administration on the estate of "Phillip Delano of Duxborrow" was granted on 7 July 1682 to Samuel Delano.

Only six of Philip's children are named in the memorandum: Philip, Thomas, John, Samuel, Jane, and Rebecca. His wife (not named) was to have a cow and the free use of 1/3 of the orchard and land, both upland and meadow, during her life. Five shillings apiece were bequeathed to his seven eldest children; "two (viz) - Phillip and Thomas - have received theire proportions." All the moveables at his wife's death were to be disposed of amongst his four youngest children.

BIRTH: Baptized Walloon Church, Leiden, 7 December (or 6 November) 1603 [NS], son of Jan de Lannoy and Marie Mahieu [TAG 52:91-92, 53:172-73; see also NEHGR 143:197-98]. DEATH: Between 22 August 1681 (date of memorandum serving as will) and 4 March 1681/2 (date of inventory). MARRIAGE: (1) Plymouth 19 December 1634 Hester Dewsbery [PCR 1:32]; she died between about 1648 and 1653.

  (2) By 17 January 1653[/4] Mary (Pontus) Glass, born by 1622, daughter of William Pontus ([MD 5:92]; "... Phillip Delanoy, who was then present, and with the consent of Mary, his wife, the other daughter of the said William Pontus" 3 May 1664 [PCR 4:58]), and widow of James Glass ("Phillp Delano Senr. aged 74 years or there about testifieth and saith before he married Mary Glass the relict of James Glass deceased...," 3 March 1676/7 [MD 14:64, citing PCLR 6:93]).

CHILDREN: With first wife

i MARY, b. say 1635; m. Plymouth 29 November 1655 Jonathan Dunham [PCR 8:17]; she d. soon and had no children [TAG 36:243-49].

ii PHILIP, b. say 1637; m. say 1670 Elizabeth Sampson, daughter of Abraham and _____ (Nash) Sampson (called Elizabeth Delano in her grandfather Nash's will [NEHGR 52:76; TAG 15:165-67]).

iii THOMAS, b. say 1639; m. by 1667 Rebecca Alden, daughter of JOHN ALDEN ("Thomas Delanoy, and his now wife, for committing carnal copulation before marriage, fined" at October Court, 1667 [PCR 8:122]).

iv ESTHER, b. say 1641; on 1 October 1661 Abraham Pierce Jr. confessed that he had falsely accused "Rebeckah Alden and Hester Delanoy" of being pregnant [PCR 4:7]; probably m. (1) by about 1670 Samuel Samson, son of Abraham and _____ (Nash) Samson, and if so m. (2) by 1679 John Soule [Muriel Curtis Cushing, Philip Delano of the "Fortune" 1621 ... (Plymouth 1999), pp. 4-5 and arguments presented there].

v JOHN, b. say 1644; m. by about 1679 Mary Weston, daughter of Edmund Weston of Duxbury [NGSQ 71:41-43].

vi JONATHAN, b. about 1648 (d. Dartmouth 28 December 1720 in 73rd year); m. Dartmouth 28 February 1677/8 Mercy Warren, daughter of Nathaniel Warren and granddaughter of RICHARD WARREN [MFIP Warren 35-36].

  With second wife

vii JANE, b. say 1655; living 1682 (settlement of her father's estate); no further record.

viii REBECCA, b. about 1657 (d. Plymouth 7 April 1709 "aged 52 years" [Bradford Kingman, Epitaphs from Burial Hill, Plymouth, Massachusetts (Brookline 1892), p. 9]); m. Plymouth 28 December 1686 John Churchill [PVR 85].

ix SAMUEL, b. say 1659 [adult 1682]; m. by 1679 Elizabeth Standish, daughter of Alexander Standish (in his will of 21 February 1701/2 Alexander named "my daughter Elizabeth Delano the wife of Samuel Delano" [MD 12:101]).

ASSOCIATIONS: In the land division of 1623, MOSES SIMONSON was joined with PHILIP DELANO in a grant of land, suggesting that they may both have come from Leiden. Also in the land division of 1623, and in the tax lists of 1633 and 1634, EDWARD BUMPAS is adjacent to PHILIP DELANO. The two men at a later date held adjacent land [PCR 1:59, 66, 67]. The last three sons of Bumpas were Philip, Thomas and Samuel, names also used by Delano. These items suggest that Edward Bumpas came from Leiden with Delano in 1621, and that the two may have had some association there before that date. COMMENTS: In a deposition of 1641 "Phillip De Lanoe of Duxbury planter" stated that he was "aged about thirty-six years"; he at that time owned a boat which he used in catching mackerel [Lechford 420].

  On 3 March 1676/7 "Phillp Delano Senr" gave his age as "74 years or there about" [MD 14:64, citing PCLR 6:93].
  Some sources claim that Philip Delano lived in Middleborough and Bridgewater, but this merely misinterprets his holdings of lands granted in those locations.
  The number of children born to Philip Delano and their allocation between his two wives remains a vexed problem, due to the vagueness of his "will" and the almost total lack of chronological checkpoints among his children and grandchildren. In the settlement of his estate six children are identified by name: Philip, Thomas, John, Samuel, Jane and Rebecca [MD 11:250-51]. Several additional statements assist in our analysis: Samuel was the "only son to the relict of the deceased"; house and land given to "his 3 eldest ... and John hath 25 acres more at Namassakett"; five shillings apiece to "his seven eldest"; and at wife's death moveables to "his 4 youngest children."
  Three additional names are known from other records: Mary (who predeceased her father, without leaving issue), Esther and Jonathan. The bequest to the "seven eldest children" implies eight or more living in 1682, and the six named in the agreement, with Jonathan and Esther added, brings us to this number.
