First Generation

Philip (Philippe) de la Noye (Delanoy, Delano) was baptized at the Protestant Walloon church in Leiden, Holland on 6 Nov 1603[1], son of Jan (Jean) Lano[2] of Tourcoing (Wallonia, later annexed into Spanish Netherlands now part of France, bordering Belgium), and Marie Mahieu of Lille (Flanders, later annexed to France).[3] His parents were married at that church some time after the date of their betrothal, 13 Jan 1596.[4] He was the nephew of Hester Mahieu, the wife of Mayflower Passenger, Francis Cooke. Philip originally intended to migrate with the pilgrims in 1620, but due to the inadequacy of the ill-named Speedwell, he was left behind. Philip did emigrate to New Plimouth Colony in 1621 aboard the Fortune.[5].

Previous Y-DNA testing

The Delano DNA Project lists twelve individuals who have STR tested and match each other. One of these individuals has done 111 STR tested and also a SNP test and been found to fall under R-U106>>L48>Y37962>S23189>A6706>S19342>S18372>Y22517>BY12202>BY11429>FGC60412.

Further needed testing

We need additional direct male-line descendants of Philip Delano to WGS/NGS test to both confirm the lineage as well as to refine the haplogroup further and delineate descendant clades.
