About Deacon John Noyes

   [From Miss Wheeler's "Old Homes in Stonington"]
   "Dea. John Noyes, brother of Capt. Thomas, built the house near Westerly, now known as the "Moss House", in 1714. Dea. John's second wife was a great-granddaughter of Gov. William Bradford, second governor of Plymouth Colony. This house is large, with a square roof, and spacious rooms are on both floors. It has no cellar underneath, being built upon a ledge, though the cellar stairs go down the front hall and end upon a flat rock. This farm was included in the grant of land from the State of Connecticut to Thomas Stanton, the Interpreter General of New England, and by his will it was given to his son-in-law, Rev. James Noyes, and from him to his son, Deacon John, and to his son Joseph Noyes, and from him to his son, Deacon John, and to his son Joseph Noyes, who lived and died there. He sold it to Nathaniel Palmer, and from him it descended to his son Luke, who lived here.
   There were two race courses, eighty rods long, on the farm, where hundreds of people used to assemble to witness the races often held there. Still later Mr. Jesse Moss owned and renovated the house, so that it is now in good repair, and looks as if it would remain habitable a century more. Some of the land about the house has been sold within the past few years, so that the farm is reduced in size, but the new and commodious houses which have sprung up all about here, show that many houses have taken the place where used to be but one, which at the time this house was built was without neighbors. Mr. Moss was interested in making the land about the place beautiful to the eye as well as productive, and the broad and beautiful fields lying before the door will probably soon find a dividing line between them, where now the acres are without fence or wall, or even a stone upon their smooth surface."
