About Joseph Noyes, Sr.

Savage, Vol. 3, p.297: Shattuck, in Farmer, says he was selectman 28 yrs. from 1662, yet we find not his name among the freem. of the Col. He was appointed constable 1667 and 1668, justice of the peace in 1679, and many other offices. He was a man of considerable property, owning a number of slaves.

First appears in Sudbury records, February 16, 1662.

Since Joseph, son of James and Sarah (BROWN) NOYES, was born in Newbury 14 Oct 1637 (Newbury VR) and his birth was, therefore not on the town records of Sudbury, and as he settled in Sudbury (where the Joseph, son of Peter lived at about the same time), it was thought that he was the latter Joseph, son of Peter. The record, however, shows that Peter's son, Joseph, was a merchant in Charlestown, in 1660. In a letter received at the Probate Court with a will dated Dec. 31, 1659, proved 2nd of April 1661, he mentions brothers Thomas and Peter of Sudbury, and sister Abigail, so this must be the son of Peter and not the Joseph NOYES of Sudbury after 1662 who married Mary Darvell, as some writers have claimed. Joseph, son of Peter, was on a voyage to Barbadoes when he made out his will and died there. [NEHGR 47:72].

The earliest mention of Joseph, son of James, in the Sudbury records is 16 Feb 1662 when he was chosen one of the selectmen, which office he held over 28 years. He was appointed constable 1667 and 1668; justice of the peace in 1679 and to many other offices. He was a man of considerable property, owned a number of slaves, and died 16 Nov 1717 in the Bermuda Islands.

First Son Of Rev. James.

2-Joseph2, son of James and Sarah (Brown), was born in Newbury, 15 Oct., 1637. As his birth was not on the town records, and as he settled in Sudbury (where another Joseph Noyes lived at about the same time), it was thought that he was the latter Joseph, son of Peter, as shown in Chapter IX. But the record of Peter Noyes' descendants shows that his son Joseph died before April 2,1661, when his will was probated. (He died in Barbados ; see Hist. Gene. Register, Vol. 47, page 72.) The earliest mention of 2-Joseph in the Sudbury records is 16 Feb., 1662, when he was chosen one of the selectmen, which office he held over twenty-eight years. He was appointed constable, 1667 and 1668 ; justice of the peace in 1679, and many other offices. He was a man of considerable property, owning a number of slaves. His views on the temperance question can be seen in the following communication :—

" To the Mlddleeix County Court :—In answer to warrant received, I have used what means I could to get the selectmen together, but by reason of one trobel and another, it has been neglected. It is the minds of most of us that the г should be none to rétale drink amongst us by the reason of the growing of the sin of drunkness amongst us.

Our fathers came into this wilderness to enjoy the gospel and its ordinances in its purity, and the conversion of the heathen, but insted of converting them, amongst other sins we have tought them to be drunkards, which we may have cause to fear God has permitted them to be such a scourge as at this present. There be thos that desir lecenses, but such as cannot command themselves ar not fit for such an imploie or trust. Verbum sapienti satis est quod suffizit. All things considered, it is not mine one mind only, but of some others, that Col. Samuel Horr is best accommodated and the most sutable man that presents himself willing to undertake to entertain travellers, wich, as I understand, is the only, or at least the chief end of a house of entertainment, and not Tonn drunkards. Plain dealing I think is best. I pray pardon my boldness. Your servant, Joseph Noyes, selectman. Sudbury, Febr. the 29, 1692."

He married Mary Darvell (or Davrell), 1662, who died 24 Sept., 1667. He married, second, Mrs. Mary (Dunster) Willard, 1680. He died 16 Nov., 1717. His birth date was found on the Newbury church records.

From findagrave.com:

Birth: Oct. 14, 1637 Newbury Old Town Essex County Massachusetts, USA Death: Nov. 16, 1717

Eldest son of James & Sarah (Browne) Noyes, born at Newbury, 14 Oct 1637. He married (1) Sudbury, 12 Nov 1662, Mary, daughter of ROBERT DARVELL {1939, Subbury}. Mary (____) Willard married (2) at Sudbury, 14 July 1680, Joseph Noyes, son of JAMES NOYES {1634, Ipswich}.

Find A Grave contributor Ken Smith adds: Joseph was born in Newbury, Massachusetts on October 15, 1637. He was the first child of James Noyes and Sarah Brown. His birth is not found in the town records, which has caused some confusion between him and other men of the same name, but the birth record was later found in the Newbury Church records. By 1662 he was in Sudbury, where he was elected selectman, an office he held for over twenty-eight years. He also served as constable, justice of the peace and other offices. He was a man of considerable property, and owned a number of slaves. He was a man of temperance, as he opposed the issuance of a license from the town to sell liquor.

He married Mary Darvell on November 12, 1662 in Sudbury. She was the daughter of Robert and Esther Darvell, born in Sudbury on May 10, 1642. Joseph and Mary had eight children, all born in Sudbury. Mary died in Sudbury on September 24, 1677. Joseph later married Mrs. Mary Dunster Willard, a widow, about 1680. Joseph died in Sudbury on November 16, 1717.
