Philippe de La Noye

b. 7 December 1602, d. before 4 March 1681/82
Biographical Info* The Delano family in America was founded by Philippe Delano (de la Noye), a 19-year-old Huguenot Pilgrim who arrived at Plymouth, Massachusetts on November 11, 1621 on the ship Fortune. He was born December 7, 1602 in Leiden, the Netherlands, the son of Jean de la Noye (1570-1604) and Marie le Mahieu. The family were Protestant refugees who had fled from persecution in the Spanish Netherlands. Living in Tourcoing in what was then known as French Flanders, the family name of 'de Lannoy' was derived from the small town of Lannoy, east of Lille.

A teenage Philippe Delano became a member of the Leiden Walloon church and joined the congregation established by the Pilgrims from Plymouth, England. Following the emigration to America of church members aboard the Mayflower, the Fortune was the second ship to arrive at the Plymouth Colony with thirty-five new colonists to join the fifty survivors of the Mayflower.

On his arrival, Philippe Delano lived with his uncle, Francis Cooke, and his cousin, John Cooke, who had arrived the previous year aboard the Mayflower. In 1623 Philippe Delano received a land grant in Plymouth but sold this property in 1627 and moved to Duxborough where in 1634 he married Hester Dewsbury (1613-1657). There, Delano prospered and was part of the group of men who organized the construction of highways and bridges around the village.

A volunteer, Philippe Delano served in the Pequot War of 1637. In 1652 he joined with 35 other colonists to purchase what was then called Dartmouth Township from Massasoit, the leader of the Wampanoag Indians. Philippe gave his portion of the acquisition, amounting to 800 acres (3.2 km), to his son Jonathan Delano who later fought in King Philip's War. Following the death of his wife, Philippe married a second time to Mary Pontus.

Philippe Delano died on August 22, 1681 in Bridgewater, Massachusetts. A great many of his offspring would become prominent mariners, whalers, and shipbuilders. The family's success was such that they would become part of a Massachusetts aristocracy, sometimes referred to as one of the Boston Brahmins or one the 'First Families of Boston.'

Over time, family members migrated to different States including Michigan, Maine, New York and as far away as Chile where the descendants of Captain Paul Delano can be found today holding important positions among the aristocracy of that nation. From the New York clan, Sara Delano married James Roosevelt and their only child, Franklin Delano Roosevelt became President of the United States.
Birth*7 December 1602Philippe de La Noye was born on 7 December 1602 in Leyden, South Holland Province, Holland.
(Original Proprietor) Land Grant1656Philip Delano was among the fifty-four Duxbury men listed in 1645 as original proprietors for the development of the town that would become Bridgewater, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts (Plymouth Colony). Two others, Reverend James Keith and Samuel Edson, were added to the group later, and when the town of Bridgewater was actually incorporated in 1656 there were a total of fifty-six. Of these proprietors, only eighteen, about one-third, actually relocated and became residents of the new plantation. Philip Delano was one of those who never relocated his family and moved to Bridgewater.

The area known as the Bridgewaters was originally inhabited by Wampanoag who called it Saughtuchquett (Satucket). In 1642 when the township of Marshfield was separated from Duxbury and became its own distinct entity, Duxbury petitioned the court for additional land “to the westward” in compensation.

The General Court granted their petition in 1645 and six trustees, Captain Myles Standish, John Alden, George Soule, Constant Southworth, John Rogers, and William Brett were appointed to divide the land. The action by the General Court was primarily an authority to purchase land, and Captain Standish, Samuel Nash, and Constant Southworth were appointed to make the purchase. The deed was signed on 23 Mar 1649.

The Bridgewater lands were divided among the inhabitants “by an agreement among themselves”. Unfortunately, there is no record to tell us how the town proceeded to agree to their division, or how, by whom, or when it was determined what residence or other circumstance should entitle anyone to a share.

(Grantor) Land Transfer1660George Soule, Moses Simmons and Philip Delano never moved to Bridgewater and in 1660 sold their proprietor shares to Nicholas Byram who settled there soon after.6
Death*before 4 March 1681/82He died before 4 March 1681/82 in Plymouth Colony.
