...to the DELANO KINDRED Web Site!
The DELANO KINDRED was founded in 1991 for the purpose of exploring the ancestry and genealogy of our common ancestor, Philippe de Lanoy. Philippe was born to Jan and Marie de Lanoy around 1602 in Leiden, Holland, and was baptized there on the 6th of November, 1603. In 1621, Philippe arrived in Plimoth (now Plymouth, Massachusetts) on the ship Fortune and some time later changed his name to Philip Delano. He is the progenitor of the Delano family in America.
We sadly announce the passing of Dr. Jememy Bangs on August 26, 2023, in Leiden. Dr. Bangs was a giant in the world of genealogy, a good, dear friend, an artist, an author, a scholar, and a strong supporter of the Delano Kindred. The drawing of the ship "Fortune" that is often seen on the Delano Kindred website and merchandise was done by Dr. Bangs.

OUR DELANO and COOKE ANCESTORS:
The INTREPID de LANNOYS and MAHIEUS from FLANDERS
(The extraordinary story of these unique MAYFLOWER and FORTUNE Pilgrims)
A Presentation and Conversation with Author George Philip English
followed by a Brief Discussion of the 2023 Delano Kindred European History Tour
Hosted by Delano Kindred Board Member Col. William English, CBE
About this presentation: The European Ancestry and History of Francis Cooke and Philip Delano/Philippe de Lannoy is, possibly, the most unique among the first Pilgrims on the Mayflower and Fortune to New England. The de Lannoys and Mahieus came from French-speaking Flanders. Their extraordinary and fascinating story was very different to that of the English Pilgrims. Persecuted by their Spanish Catholic rulers for their religious beliefs, they fled to Canterbury in England. Later, they went to Leiden, Holland, nearly 20 years before the English Separatists arrived.
Join our host, fellow descendant and Delano Kindred Board member Col. William English, CBE, as genealogist, historian and de Lannoy/Mahieu descendant George English presents the fascinating, evidence-based family history in his book The Delano and Cooke Ancestors, with the family members, historical and social information, pictures and maps to bring them to life. The Delano and Cooke Ancestors is available for purchase on the Delano Kindred website.
Following this presentation there was a brief discussion and Q&A about the Delano Kindred European History Tour which starts on September 19, 2023 in Amsterdam, continues for 10 days, and concludes in London.
THIS DELANO ANCESTRY AND HISTORY IS SHARED BY 5 US PRESIDENTS, WINSTON CHURCHILL AND A MILLION DESCENDANTS.
