Reverend William Noyes was rector of diocese at Choulderton in Wiltshire in 1602. Resigned in 1621.

Born ca 1568 at probably Choulderton, Wiltshire.52 William died at Choulderton, Wiltshire, in Apr 1622. Buried on 30 Apr 1622 in Choulderton, Wiltshire. Education: Oxford 1592.


The best information I have found so far about William Noyes’ wife is from “Genealogical Record of Some of the Noyes Descendants of James, Nicholas and Peter Noyes”, vol. 2, collected and compiled by Col. Henry Erastus Noyes, U.S.A. and Miss Harriette Noyes, members of NEHGS, Boston, MA 1904.

pg. 86 states that William’s wife was the sister of Rev. Robert Parker

pg. 416 (index of marriages) shows Anne Parker married Rev. William Parker

pg. 45 states that “The statement that Rev. William Noyes married Anne Stephens, daughter of Nicholas Stephens, Esq., of Burdrop Manor, Wilts, England, and that she was the mother of James and Nicholas Noyes, had been admitted to be undoubtedly incorrect.” This page also shows a copy of Anne Parker’s will. has a copy of vol. 1 of this book. Vol. 1 also states that Rev. William Noyes married Anne Parker. It also states that she was named administratrix of his estate after his death and that she was buried 7 March 1657 at Cholderton (per parish register).

Anne Parker is also shown as the wife of Rev. William Parker on page 571 of "Hudson-Mohawk Genealogical and Family Memoirs A Record of Achievements of the People of the Hudson and Mohawk Valleys in New York State, Included Within the Present Counties of Albany, Rensselaer, Washington, Saratoga, Montgomery, Fulton, Schenectady, Columbia and Greene", Prepared under the editorial supervision of Cuyler Reynolds, (New York: Lewis Historical Publishing Company, 1911)

However, page 335 of the same book states that William’s wife was Ann Stephens,


"History of Newbury, Massachusetts 1635-1902" by John J. Currier states that the marriage to Ann Stephens is probably incorrect.

Most sources state that Anne Parker was his wife; some sources state that he married Anne Stephens. Most sources refute the marriage to Anne Stephens, even those that cite that marriage. However, not all agree, and most of them were written in the early 1900s.

Therefore, Anne Parker will be the acknowledged PROBABLE mother of William's children. It is possible, but unlikely, that Anne Stephens may have been the mother of some of his children.
