FDR Library presentation/discussion about Delano ancestors.

On Wednesday, October 27, 2021, cousin George English discussed our Delano ancestors, the de Lannoys and the Mahieus, with FDR Library's Education Specialist Jeffrey Urbin. The session was recorded, and is available for viewing using the link below.

The story of the English Pilgrims on the Mayflower is well known. Much less so is the fascinating story of survival in 4 different countries within 50 years of the Reformation of FDR's ancestors -- the de Lannoys, and Mahieus. They suffered from Spanish persecution in Flanders, then fled to England while the Separatist movement gathered pace. Then to Leiden, where they had lived for 18 years before John Robinson and the English Separatists arrived. Their descendants, Philip Delano and John Cooke, would leave on the Fortune and Mayflower to build new lives for themselves in New England. Watch FDR Library Education Specialist Jeffrey Urbin as he speaks with genealogist and historian (and Delano/de Lannoy/Mahieu descendant) George English.
