  • Notes 
    • Muriel Cushing notes (January 2006):

      "...the Delano Kindred has taken the stand that until there is proof we only feel we can claim descendancy to the proven Guilbert, grandfather of Philippe."

      From John R. Bradfield May 1979:

      "Born at Toureving [Tourcoing], Flanders, became a Protestant and due to persecution moved to Leiden."

      Notes from delanoye.org:

      "Jan's father was Gysbert Lano (ca. 1545- ); Jan's mother is unknown. Ancestry beyond this point is not proven at this time. [Dr. Jeremy Bangs, NEHGS Register Vol. CXLIII], [City of Leiden Judicial Archives #89, Vol. C, folio 142]."

      George English notes:

      "In the last few months Jan 2008, new findings include that there were de Lannoys living in 20 of the 80 districts and hamlets of Tourcoing in the mid 16th Century. So, the only noble de Lannoy who could have been the father of Guilbert de Lannoy (Philippe's grandfather) was Jean's brother, Baudouin but that is very unlikely. The likelihood is that the father of Guilbert was one of the de Lannoys living in the districts/hamlets, whose ancestors probably moved from the nearby town of Lannoy many years before. At first, they would have been known as 'X of (de) Lannoy', and eventually this last name would be passed down from father to son."


      "Guilbert/Gysbert de Lannoy as son of Jean de Lannoy. No genealogically acceptable proof has been found of this claim made in the 1899 Genealogy, History and Alliances of The American House of Delano, 1621-1899"

      "...Tourcoing is not in Belgium...but neither was it in France in the 16th Century. It was in Flanders which was then part of the Spanish Netherlands. The French-speaking Protestants there were called Walloons (as opposed to the Huguenots from France), and suffered persecution from Charles V which got worse when his son Philip II succeeded him."

      "..they went first to England..'Received as a member of the Walloon Church of Leiden, Easter 1591: Guillebert de Lannoy, his wife and their daughter Marguerite, by deposition of the Church at Canterbury' - G.A. Leiden, Archives de L'Eglise Walonne de Leyde, inv. nr. 40, [Actes du consistoire 1584-1611]."

      "...this makes them the only family I know (apart from the Mahieus) who lived in 4 different countries during the Reformation." [5, 6, 7, 8]
