In 1687 Philip Delano is mentioned in the renting of the common meadows of Duxbury. Due to his opposition and that of 32 others, measures to further divide the commons were deferred. On 12 Sept. 1707 it was voted that every freeholder and housekeeper was to receive twenty acres of the Commons. Those of the Delano family listed in the division of 5 June 1710 were Philip Delano, dec.; his son Philip, Jr.; Samuel Delano, Sr.; Dr. Thomas Delano; Benoni Delano; Joseph Delano; John Delano, Sr. and John Delano, Jr. They all received an additional share in the next division of marshland on 16 May 1711. Philip Delano gave his son Ebenezer the deed to land on which to build a house, "which my father, Philip De-La-Noye, deceased, gave me at Pine Point."

The will of Philip Delano, dated 11 Dec. 1708, devised all his lands and moveable goods and cattle to son Samuel except what was left "unto my three Daughters (viz) 'I give unto my Daughter Harlow one cow; Daughter Jane one cow; Daughter Martha Dolino widow

(wife of his son Ebenezer) one cow & one swine'."
