Best Answer

For a long time, Delaware the colony was part of Pennsylvania. It was owned and governed by William Penn, the Quaker owner of Pennsylvania. He had troubles governing both colonies, so he tried to merge them, but then settlers from both places denied him to do that and Delaware and Pennsylvania became different colonies. It depends on what time you are referring to, because at one time Delaware wasn't and was a separate colony. Delaware was also the first colony to become a state. Delaware was a Royal English Colony, meaning that England taxed Delaware and collected money from them.
