    • Jeremy Bangs notes:

      "The Mahieu family came from the area of Lille....Formerly it was part of Walloon Flanders. Heavily Protestant, the area was captured by Catholic armies under Parma in 1578, and many Walloon Calvinists fled to England directly, while others fled north towards the Protestant cities of Bruges and Antwerp. When those cities fell in 1585, refugees went across to Englandor north to Zeeland and Holland. We may assume that Hester Mahieu's parents were among these refugees, taking with them their young daughters Mary and Francoise. Hester was evidently born in Canterbury, although the Walloon Church records there do not contain references to the family. It is quite possible that her father was Jacques Mahieu.... Jacques Mahieu and his, whose name was not recorded, were received into communion in the Leiden Walloon Church on 10 June 1590, with letters of transfer from the Walloon Church in London...." [6]

    Marie de Lannoy
    Marie de Lannoy
    Painting of Marie de Lannoy, wife of Jan Pesijn, the founder of the Jan Pesijnhof. (This is NOT Marie Mahieu as is sometimes mistakenly claimed)

    Documents
    T.N. Schelhaas letter
    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 
    • Lille, formerly a part of Walloon Flanders, now lies in northern France

      Please note the confilct below between the Bradfiedl and Schellas notes.

      John R. Bradfield notes:

      "Marie de Mahieu of Brabant who on Jean's death, married Jean Psyn (    -1650). Portraits of Jean Pesyn, Marie and daughter are in a Walloon church alms house in Leiden."

      T.N. Schellas notes:

      "The painting often claimed to be of Marie Mahieu, mother of Philippe Delano is not her.  Instead the painting is of Marie de Lannoy wife of Jan Pesijn, the founder of the Jan Pesijnhof."


      Jeremy Bangs notes:

      "Because Hester Mahieu's mother's name was also Jenne (Jeanne), and because Hester's husband François acted as a baptismal witness for Philippe de Lannoy, a role that was frequently given to relations, it may be concluded that Mary Mahieu was almost certainly Hester's sister.  In other words, Francis and Hester Cooke were the uncle and aunt of Philip Delano."

      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.2 Only two children are recorded to this couple as the baptismal registers of the Walloon Church begin in the year 1599 and there may have been older siblings of Jenne, bpt. 6 Nov. 1601 and Philippe, bpt. 6 Nov. 1603.
