Status summary

Completed as of August 29, 2020:

  • Recruiting additional direct male-line Delano descebdabts for further SNP testing - anyone interested in submitting their DNA for testing should contact Raymond T. Wing (email: wing.genealogist AT gmail DOT com)
  • Y-SNP tested to R-U106>>L48>L47>>FGC60412.

Still to do as of August 29, 2020

  • NGS/WGS test multiple descendants of Philippe Delano to firmly place family clade as well as test descendants to discover any subclades unique to descendants lines


First Generation

Philip (Philippe) de la Noye (Delanoy, Delano) was baptized at the Protestant Walloon church in Leiden, Holland on 6 Nov 1603, son of Jan (Jean) Lano of Tourcoing[1] and Marie Mahieu of Lille (Flanders, later annexed to France).[2] His parents were married at that church some time after the date of their betrothal, 13 Jan 1596.[3] He was the nephew of the wife of Mayflower Passenger, Francis Cooke.[4] 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].

He was likely one of the first individuals who was allowed to farm on land now in Duxbury (circa 1624) and was granted property there the same year it was incorporated (in 1637). Philip was married twice. His first marriage was recorded in Plymouth on 19 Dec 1634 to Hester Dewsbury. She died sometime between 1648 and 1653. He next married (likely at Duxbury) sometime between 1652-1659 to Mary PONTUS Glass, daughter of William Pontus and widow of James Glass. Philip died at Duxbury sometime shortly before the inventory of his estate was taken (4 Mar 1681/2).

Philip and his first wife Hester had the following children: 1) Mary, born about 1635. She married Jonathan Dunham, but they never had any children 2) Philip, born about 1637 (see below) 3) Thomas, born about 1639 (see below) 4) Esther, born about 1641. Not named in her father's estate, so presumably died unmarried, and likely died young. 5) John, born about 1644 (see below) 6) Jonathan, born about 1648 (see below)

Philip and his second wife Mary had the following children 7) Jane, born about 1655. Last mentioned in her father's 1682 probate record 8) Rebecca, born about 1657. She married John Churchill and had five children. 9) Samuel, born about 1659 (see below) 10) a daughter, born about 1661. The wording of Philip's probate record inferred this daughter's existence.

Second Generation

Philip married Elizabeth Samson about 1670 and had five children

Thomas married Rebecca Alden (daughter of Mayflower Passengers John Alden & Priscilla Mullins) by 1667 and had nine children

John married Mary Weston by 1679 and had six children

Jonathan married Mercy Warren (granddaughter of Mayflower Passenger Richard Warren) 28 Feb 1677/8 and had thirteen children

Samuel married Elizabeth Standish (granddaughter of Mayflower Passenger Myles Standish) by 1679 and had nine children

DNA results

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 be FGC60412.[1].

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.
