Hello, I have looked high and low but can find NO real information as to the date and place of the birth of Lt. Jonathan Delano.I dismiss the information contained in " The History House...." ab Mort Delano. NO sources are given. Can anyone give us a source for the birth?Here are some notes that I have in my GEDCOM file about the Delano family. While the use of Arms is not always a sure thing in research, I do find a link to the Surrey Family of Delanno as shown in the Visitation of Surrey, 1662 - 8, page 71 of Harl. Vol. LX. The arms of this family are the same as Lt. Jonathan Delano.NOT DeLannoy from Belg. and France.
Here are the notes. ** Jonathan Delano d. 28 December 1720, aged 73 years. Source: Dartmouth, MA, vital records,gravestone in Acushnet Cemetery. Jonathan m. Mercy Warren 28 February 1677-78 Source: Dartmouth vital records, ( De La Noye)(De La Noue)Lt. Jonathan Delano:
Some qustions have been raised as to the parentage of Jonathan. Further research will prove or disprove both theries.Jonathen used the Coat of Arms ofthe famous Calvinist Caption FrancoisDe La Noue, surnamed "Bras de Fer"of Briord France, or "Iron Armed" and the arms of Odet De La Noue, these being the same arms as used by Claude De La Noue. NOT the arms of his "family" de Lannoy-DeLano, or the armes of Barbacon, as used by Gysbert and his father Lord Jean de Lannoy or Gysberts mother Jeanne de Ligne de Barboncon.On the 102nd page of the book "Precis Genealogique de la Maison De La Noue by Le Vicompt Oscar de Poli, 1886 has a foot note: Translated reads: ".... in the Nat. Bibl.[National Library] is a portrait of Francois de la Noue surnamed Bras de Fer, with the legend: Francoys De Lannoy. when the head of the Nat. Library was asked about the mistake in listing the name as DeLannoy and not De La Noue as it should be written, he repled: " Traduttori, Traduttori Traditori!!" Tradition. Could this be the start of a incorrect family genealogy?
Lt. Jonathan is NOT the son of Phillip Delano. No facts support any pedigree that shows Jonathan as son to Phillip.
Jonathan is said to have arrived from Brittany, France via England, landing and thensetting up house in Connecticut. (CGA) Crozier's General Armory: This Armory states on page Viii : " The descriptions of the arms, and the data, carefully collated and verified, have been inserted ONLY when actual examination of the necessary records has shown the family to be entitled to the distinction. ".Bolton's American Armory: " Arms brought over by Jonathan DeLano, to Tolland Connecticut in 1722." Vermonts American Armory, pp. 47 & 163," same statement."Matthews American Armoury and Blue Book,1907: "Philippe De La Noye, from Leydon, Holland, to Plymouth Mass. His Grandson Jonathan de Lano settled at Tolland, Conn., 1722, same arms. My copy of "Armorial Du Poitou,... 1866 sites on page 35, : " Claude De La Noue, Porte: d'argent frette de sable au chef de gueul charge de 3 testes de loup d'or posee en pal gueules beantes" Thes are for the most part the SAME as the arms used by Lt. Jonathan.
