History: Franklin D. Roosevelt's mother was a Delano, descended from Philippe de la Noye or de Lannoy (1602–81), born in Leiden in the Netherlands, who arrived at Plymouth, MA, in 1621 on the Fortune, one year after the Pilgrim Fathers. — This surname is listed along with its original forms de la Noye and de Lannoy in the (US) National Huguenot Society's register of qualified Huguenot ancestors, referring to Jan or Jean de la Noye or de Lannoy from Tourcoing in northern France, the father of Philippe mentioned above. The same ancestor is also listed (as Jean de Lannoy) in the similar register of the Huguenot Society of America, besides Abraham de la Noy and Philippe de la Noy.
