He was a descendant of Philippe1 de Lannoy, who was baptized at Leyden, Holland, 7 December 1603, arrived at Plymouth in New England in the Fortune 9 November 1621, and married Hester Dewsbury, through Jonathan1 and Mercy (Warren), Thomas* and Jane (Peckham), Ephraim4 and Elisabeth (Cushman), Warren* and Deborah Perry (Church), and Warren6 and Catherine Robbins (Lyman), his parents. His father was born in 1809 in what is now Fairhaven, Mass.

He received his early education at Brattleboro, Vt., 1864-65, at Cambridge, Mass., 1865-1867, and at Celle, Hanover, Germany, 1867-1870. He was graduated from the Lawrence Scientific School, Cambridge, in 1874, receiving there the degree of S. B.

He followed the profession of mining engineer, acting at various times as superintendent, manager, and, more recently, as coal operator and railroad director. He had large mining interests in Pennsylvania, and was president of the Delano Coal Company, with offices in New York City .

He was a lover of horses, and his stable at his Barrytown summer home was one of the finest in Dutchess County. He made a specialty of breeding Norwegian and Swedish horses. He was one of the directors of the Springfield Park Association, and maintained that the draught horse would never be supplanted by the automobile for short-distance hauls.
