DE LANO. The descendants of the Pilgrim ancestor Philip De Lano, have the satisfaction of tracing their ancestry in the old country for a dozen centuries. They have established the full right to bear the arms of the De Lano family, which could be of no better stock, and which embraces a host of distinguished men in its numbers.

The name is derived from the town of Lannoy, a few miles from Isla, now Lille, France. Away back in A. D. 863, this town was called Alnetum, later L'Annois and Lannoy. It has been spelled L'Annois, Leanne, L'Aulmaiss, L'Auloy, but more often Alnetum. To-day, Lannoy is a small manufacturing town, seven miles from Lille, with a population at the last census of 1,904. The first Lord of Lannoy, progenitor of the family, was Hugues de Lannoy, mentioned as a knight of Tournai D'Auclin in 1096. On the same list was Simon de Alneto. A charte des Chanoines (cannon) de St. Pierre at Lille mentions Gilbert de Lannoy in 1171 and Hugues de Lannoy is mentioned in 1186. It is impossible to present in there seems to be no flaw in the this place an extended history of the family in its early days in France. That has been done with remarkable care and apparent accuracy in the genealogy, which is authority for all said here about the origin and early history of the family. there seems to be no flaw in the following pedigree in the direct male line of the immigrant, Philip Delano, or Delaney.

It is shown that the Delaney family for all these centuries remained pure Norman and Flemish blood, never intermarrying with the French race. The following lines of descent show some of the royal ancestors of Philip Delano.

(I) Huolf, first Duke of the Normans, a Viking, A. d. 860. 2. William Longsword, Duke of the Normans. 3. Richard, the Fearless. 4. Richard, the Good. 5. Robert I, the Devil. 6. William, the conqueror, King of England, Duke of Normandy. 7. Henry I, "Beauclerc." 8. Matilda, married Geoffrey Plantagenet. 9. Henry II, King of England, 1154 to 1199. 10. Matilda, married Henry V, Duke of Saxony and Bavaria. 11. Henry VI, married Agnes, daughter of Conrad, son of Frederick I, a descendant of Alfred the Great (849), Cerdie (495) and other ancient English noble and royal personages. 12, Agnes, married Othon, Duke of Bavaria. 13, Agnes, married Hellin de Franchmont. 14, Hellin II. 15, Jean de Franchmont, born about 1300. 16. Hugues de Lannoy, born 1311, died 1349. 17, Guillebert. 18, Baudouin, Le Begul. 19, Baudouin. 20. Phillippe. 21. Jean, died 1560. 22. Gysbert, born 1545. 23, Jean, of Leyden. 24. Phillippe, the emigrant mentioned below.

The line of Philip Delano is traced to Charlemagne and his ancestor to the year A. d. 611, viz.: 1. St. Arnoul, (611). 2. Ansegise, A. D. 679. 3. Pepin, Le Gros, 714. 4. Charles Nartel, Duke of the Franks, 768. 5. Pepin, "the short" King of France, 768. 6. Emopirer Charlemagne, 800. 7. Pepin, King of Italy. 8. Bernard, King of Italy. 9. Pepin II. 10. Pepin, Compte de Vermandois. 11. Beatrix, married Robert, Duke of France. 12. Hugue the Great. 13. Hugue Capet, King of France. 14. Robert, the Saint, King of France. 15. Alix de France, married Boudouin, fifth count of Flanders. 16. Judith, married Guelph, Duke of Bavaria. 17. Henry III. 18. Henry IV.. 19. Henry V. 20. Henry VI, where the line connects with the one previously given.

Another pedigree connects Philip Delano with Priam, King of the Franks, in 382, and still another with Guelph, Prince of the Scyrri, A. D. 476. Of course, the royal ancestors of any family are legion in case any connection is established, for the constant intermarriage connect the ruling families of all nations to some extent. The royal and some of the noble family genealogies are available, of course.

(I) Philip Delano, immigrant ancestor, was born in Leyden, Holland, 1602, and baptized there, 1603. His parentage and ancestors are given above. The Delano family went to Leyden to escape persecution in France, where the Catholic party was in power and the Inquisition active. They were French Protestants or Huguenots. Philip grew up under the teachings of the separatists of the established church of England, who fled to Holland in 1608 to abide in Leyden. Thus he became affiliated with the Pilgrims who came over in the "Mayflower," and it is believed that he started in the first company that came to Plymouth in that vessel. He is supposed to have come in the companion ship, the "Speedwell," which sailed from Southampton for amber, but had to put into Dartmouth on account of a leak. She sailed again, August 31, after repairs were made, but sprung a leak once more, and returned to Plymouth, England, where the voyage was abandoned and eighteen of the passengers who could not be accommodated on the "Mayflower," including Robert Cushman, remained in England until the "Fortune" sailed next summer. At any rate, Philip Delano came to America on the ship "Fortune" in 1621; then aged nineteen years. In 1624 he had an acre of land granted to him at Plymouth, but gave it up as he settled in Duxbury. Winslow is authority for the statement that the name was formerly De La Noye. The records also give five more spellings: Dillanee, Dillnow, Dilnow, Dillno, and Delanoy. The correst form of the name given by the genealogist is Delano de Lannoy. The arms of the family: Argent, a chevron between three boars' heads, sable.

LOCKWOOD. The name of Lockwood is of very ancient origin, and is found in Domesday Book, England's oldest book of records, that was ordered by William, the Conqueror. Burke's "General Armory" gives the Lockwood arms, as derived from the Rev. Richard Lockwood, rector of Dingley, Northampton, England, in 1530, thus: Arms: "Argent a fesse between three martlet sable;" crest: "On the stump of an oak tree, erased proper a martlert sable;" motto: Tutus in Undus" (Secure against the waves). "Ne Cede." (Break rather than bend). A detailed history of the family in America would show many names of men and women eminent in the professions, the public service, civil and military, and in the world of business.

In the Historical Records in Connecticut it appears that many Lockwoods were in the wars Colonial and Revolutionary. Forty-two officers of this name were in the Revolutionary War, besides many privates in the Army and Navy. The Tories in and about Norwalk, Greenwich and Fairfield said "They could not endure the notoriously rebellious Lockwood tribe," but after years a grandson and granddaughter healed the breach. These same Lockwoods had been burned out, plundered, and had their harvests destroyed by the British and distressed. The record adds the general assembly reported their taxes abated. They were called the "Fighting Lockwoods."

(I) Robert Locoweed came from England about 1630 and settled in Watertown, Massachusetts, where his first six children were born and births recorded. He was made a freeman March 9, 1636.

He sold to Bryan Pendleton all the land granted him by the town, also four acres of remote meadow and one acre of patch meadow, September 29, 1645, to Edward Garfield, ancestor of the late President James A. Garfield. He let no will, and his estate was administered by his widow Susanna. There being no will, the court decided that the widow shall have one-third of the estate, the ten children the remainder. The inventory showed property to the value of four hundred and sixty-seven pounds. Susanna Lockwood gave evidence in a witch case May 13, 1654, at a court held in New Haven, and stated she was present when Goodwife Kemp was hanged for a witch. She subsequently married Jeffrey Ferris. She was daughter and heir of Richard Cutts, Esq. She died, December 23, 1660, at Greenwich, Connecticut. Children of Robert and Susanna Lockwood: 1.
