It’s Going to Get Real Noisy in Newbury!

375th Anniversary Newbury Mass The Mass Flow of Pilgrims. Although Roanoke, Jamestown, and the Plymouth Colonies preceded the Puritans, the Puritan immigration was the first “en masse” immigration to the America’s. It was spearheaded by Winthrop’s Fleet in 1630 of 1,000 souls. The population of the other settlements in America probably didn’t exceed 2,500 souls before they landed. Two hundred people died the first winter, two hundred gave up and went back to England the next spring. In the next 10 years, 20,000 Englishmen immigrated to Massachusetts, primarily fueled by the Puritan exodus.

In human genealogy

In England and Wales pedigrees are officially recorded in the College of Arms, which has records going back to the Middle Ages, including pedigrees collected during roving inquiries by its heralds during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The purpose of these heraldic visitations was to register and regulate the use of coats of arms. Those who claimed the right to bear arms had to provide proof either of a grant of arms to them by the College, or of descent from an ancestor entitled to arms. It was for this reason that pedigrees were recorded by the visitations. Pedigrees continue to be registered at the College of Arms and kept up to date on a voluntary basis but they are not accessible to the general public without payment of a fee.

More visible, therefore, are the pedigrees recorded in published works, such as Burke’s Peerage and Burke’s Landed Gentry in the United Kingdom and, in continental Europe by the Almanach de Gotha. Due to space considerations, however, these publications typically use a narrative pedigree, whereby relationships are indicated by numbers (one for each child, a different format for each generation) and by indentations (each generation being indented further than its predecessor). This format is very flexible, and allows for a great deal of information to be included, but it lacks the clarity of the traditional chart pedigree

Mitochondrial DNA regulates the body’s energy production, as well as muscle power and endurance, among others. Findings of a pronounced frequency of this haplogroup in Viking and Iron Age Danes.

Origin of Surname Noyes

Latin Banner on the Coat-of-Arms. Nuncia pacis oliva Translated: A message of peace.

First found in Wiltshire where they were seated from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

William was of Viking origin. Though he spoke a dialect of French and grew up in Normandy, a fiefdom loyal to the French kingdom, he and other Normans descended from Scandinavian invaders. William’s great-great-great-grandfather, Rollo, pillaged northern France with fellow Viking raiders in the late ninth and early 10th centuries, eventually accepting his own territory (Normandy, named for the Norsemen who controlled it) in exchange for peace.

Knights of Christ / Knights Templar

Recorded as Noyce, Noyse, Noice, and Noyes, this is an English medieval surname. However spelt it is a patronymic form of the biblical male given name Noah from the word “noach” meaning long-lived. The are two possible origins for the surname. The first is as an Introduction into Europe by the returning Crusaders knights of the 12th century, fresh from their many attempts to rescue the city of Jerusalem from the hands of the Muslims. It became the fashion for these returning warriors to christen their subsequent children with biblical or hebrew names, which later developed into surnames. The second possibity is the name of an actor who played the part of Noah in the medieval miracle plays based on the story of Noah and his ark. The forename is first recorded as Noe in the Staffordshire Chartulary of the year 1125, whilst the surname is well recorded in the surviving London church registers from the Elizabethan times. These recordings include those of Alice Noyes who married an Edmund Holmes at the church of St. Katherine by the Tower (of London) on June 16th 1661, and Richard Noice, who was christened at St Peter-le-Poer, on July 5th 1730. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Simon Noysse. This was dated 1327, in the Subsidy Rolls of the county of Suffolk, during the reign of King Edward 111rd of England, 1327 – 1377. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to “develop” often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling Migrated from the land of Norman, the NOYES family was listed on the rolls of King William DE NOYER  (William the Conqueror) some believed lived on the estate and found in the rolls of the King. May have fought in the Battle of Hasting in 1066. Today Norman is Normandy France.  The Noyes family are likely of Nordic , Dane descent via the nomadic Vikings.

Ancient Noyes Family From Paul Noyes

Ancient Noyes Family

By Paul Noyes

The surname NOYES is rare. It may have originated in East Anglia at a very early period. Land held by Walter Noyse was mentioned in a fine concerning land in ‘Scroteby’, Norfolk, on 10 May 1209. William and Simon Noysse were both listed in the Ville of Laxfield, in Hoxne Hundred, Suffolk, in 1327. There were six Noyse wills proved in the Court of Archdeacon of Suffolk before 1600: Robert Noyse, of Fressingfield, 1463; Agnes his widow, of Fressingfield, 1464; William, of Ubbeston, 1469; Robert, of Wingfield, 1471; William, of Laxfield, 1510; and Robert, of Laxfield, 1510.

The adjoining parishes of Laxfield, Fressingfield, Wingfield, and Ubbeston lie in the north-central part of the county. The chief landholder in the region then was the de la Pole family, first Earls, then Dukes of Suffolk. The land came into their family through the marriage of Katherine, heiress of Sir John de Wingfield, to Michael de la Pole, first Earl of Suffolk. The manor of Ramridge, Hampshire, had also been acquired through the Wingfield marriage. For this reason it is possible that the Duke sent one of his Suffolk men to oversee the distant Hampshire manor, founding the Noyes family in that county. Ramridge was important as one of the greatest fairs in England was held partly on its lands.

Ramridge was held by the first Earl of Suffolk at his death in 1391. The Wingfield estates passed to his eldest son, Michael, who succeeded as Second Earl (d. Sept. 1415), but, importantly, Ramridge was settled on the male heirs of his younger brother, Sir Thomas de la Pole. On Thomas’s death (21 Aug. 1420), it passed to his son Thomas, who died seised of ‘Ramrugge’ on 27 July 1430. Because he died without male issue, Ramridge passed to his cousin, William de la Pole (son of the Second Earl), who was created first Duke of Suffolk. Thus Ramridge was reunited with the Wingate estates in 1430. The first of the Noyes family in Hampshire may have arrived as servants of the first Duke of Suffolk at his manor of Ramridge about 1430-32. The court rolls of the manor of Ramridge record that Robert Noys was farming the manor (rendering its accounts) in 1432-33.

The Duke and his wife, Alice Chaucer, granddaughter and heir of the poet, were granted license to found God’s House, better known as Ewelme Hospital, in 1437, but it was not endowed with the manor of Ramridge until 1442. It was during this short period between 1430 and 1442 that a Noyse/Noyes from Laxfield or Wingate, Suffolk, might have ended up on the distant manor of Ramridge, as the Hospital would have had no Suffolk interests by which to draw a Noyes from that county to Hampshire.

The Noyes family continued as farmers of the manor of Ramridge for at least two more centuries. The court rolls are intermittent, so the line of descent in the earliest generations in Hampshire is not clear. Robert Noys is recorded as rendering accounts for the manor of Ramridge in 1432-33. John Noyse was the farmer of Ramrugge on 26 November 1476, 28 November 1477, 1478, 1482/3, and 1484. He likely died in the next few years, as Robert Noyes was farmer of Ramrugge in 1493 and 1497. The abstract under date 21 May 1 Henry VIII [1509] states, “To this court came Thomas Noyse and took of the lord a cottage called the Saynte with lands and one acre of meadow … to hold to the said Thomas and Agnes his wife and the longer liver of them – to pay heriot on death. And give as fine 20s. Same paid 19 Henry VIII (1503/4) [sic].” The entry for 27 September 4 Henry VIII [1512] reads, “presented that Thomas No[y]se farmer of this lordship and his predecessors, time out of mind, had amongst other things a parcel of land called the “Stallys” and “Bothis” lying on the King’s way leading E&W as appears by metes and bounds.” On 16 September 9 Henry VIII [1517] the Master of Ewelme granted Thomas Noyse the lease of the capital messuage of his manor of Ramrugge with the lands thereto belonging, courts, etc., excepting the advowson of Wee [Weyhill] Church, for a period of 50 years at a rent of £8 6s 8d. Another lease, dated 21 June 10 Henry VIII [1518] granted the same, at the same rate, for a period of 40 years. Thomas Noyse was farmer of the manor on 6 October 20 Henry VIII [1528] when he made agreements with his tenants This last Thomas Noyes is certainly Thomas Noyes (b. say 1488), from whom descent can be traced with certainty.

There are two likely scenarios by which Ramridge might have descended through the earliest generations of the Hampshire Noyes family. The first scenario assumes a direct descent through [1] Robert (b. say 1390), [II] John (b. say 1415), [III] Robert (b. say 1440), [IV] Thomas of Andover (b. say 1465), to [V] Thomas (b. say 1488).

The second scenario takes into account the possibility that the Robert who farmed Ramridge from 1493 to 1497 might have been Thomas’s uncle Robert, who later acquired the lease of the manor of Littleton, and may have held Ramridge during the minority of his nephew Thomas as guardian. The earliest [I] Robert (b. say 1390) who farmed Ramridge in 1432-33 would again be the first generation, then the second generation would be unknown. [III] John (b. say 1440) who farmed Ramridge from 1475 to 1484 would be next, and father of both [IV] Thomas (b. say 1465) mentioned in the court rolls of Andover 1490-1491, and Robert, of Kimpton, who farmed Ramridge from 1493 to 1497 during the minority of his nephew, [V] Thomas Noyes (b. say 1488).

But as only names and dates have been gleaned from the manorial records, no specific relationships are known with certainty until we reach Thomas Noyes (b. say 1488). It is impossible at this point to determine which descent is correct. [Excerpted from “The English Ancestry of Peter Noyes” by Paul C. Reed and Dean Crawford Smith, NEHGR 152:259, July 1998].From this family descended Nicholas, son of Robert and Joan (Mondey) Noyes, who was on a 1545 list of taxpayers for the benevolence of Cholderton in the county of Wilts. This Nicholas had a son, Robert, who was the father of William, rector of the church at Cholderton in 1601. Two of William and Ann (Parker) Noyes’ sons, James and Nicholas were the immigrant ancestors in 1634 of nearly all families with the Noyes surname existing today in the United States.

The other Noyes immigrant at this time was Peter who arrived in New England in 1638 and settled in Sudbury. The line of Peter Noyes ended when there were no sons born to the third generation. Until only recently, Peter was suspected to have been a cousin of James and Nicholas. That relationship has now been proven.

Remembering my Aunt Estelle Bishop- The Tamborine Girl age 99

Aunt Estel

Here is one woman that I know will be in Heaven to greet me. One of Gods finest person’s he ever created. My sister Carol can tell the story better than me. She was volunteering at the old folks home in her 90’s and lived at home until she past away a 99 from an elective surgery. Yes, that’s what she wanted. When you get to be her age, you can do what ever you want.  Praise God for her and Earl in my life. I still think about my uncle Earl and Estel fondly, helps me go to sleep at night. She reaches down from heaven and pats me on the head and says she loves me.

Uncle Earl Bishop and “Little Al”  in 1960. My dads Ford station wagon in the background. Note the dented fender.  I did that when I pulled the emergency brake, the car rolled down the hill and hit the cabin.  If I had not hit the corner of the cabin, it was steep roll into the lake.

No one was really mad I remember, but they had to take a sledge hammer to beat the logs back into place and I think my dad did some bumper tweaking  as well. Earl was so grateful that I was OK, my dad was just serious dad, but also grateful.
