Death: May 30, 1770

John Noyes was born April 7, 1720 at Abington, Plymouth County, Massachusetts to Samuel and Hannah Poore Noyes.

At the age of nine years, John's father died and his uncle Samuel Poor was appointed his guardian in 1736.

In 1741, John married his first cousin, Abigail Poore, and their children were: Benjamin, John Jr., Samuel, Daniel, Enoch, Aaron, Moses, Moses (again) and Nathan.

The family moved to Suncook (Pembroke), New Hampshire in the summer of 1742 where they were among the first settlers of that town. August 25, 1745, John received a deed for 18 acres of land in Suncook, agreeing in 1742 to settle in town and work as a blacksmith for 10 years in return for the land. Until 1763, he was referred to as a blacksmith. He was also called a yeoman, a physician, a gentleman, an innkeeper and a Justice of the Peace. He received a license to run a tavern on April 5, 1754. After 1763, he was referred to as Esquire.

In January 1757, John presented a town petition to the New Hampshire General Court asking that the land east of the Merrimack River be renamed Pembrook. The request was granted. Just before his death in 1770, He moved to the west side of the river to Bow in 1769.

After his death on May 30, 1770 in Pembrook, Merrimack County, New Hampshire, an inventory was taken of his estate August 25, 1770. The estate was valued at 386 pounds, 10s, 8p. It consisted of his homestead in Bow, a farm in Penbrook, an island in the Merrimack River and personal property. Some of the animals he owned were: horses, oxen, 6 cows, 2 calves, pigs and 22 sheep. His tools included hoes, spades, a pitch fork, hammers, a grindstone, a loom, a spinning wheel and spools. He owned equipment for farming: yokes, plows, harrows, saddles and bridles. Household items included kitchen utensils, clothes, furniture and bedding. Other items listed were: a large Bible, law books, hymn books, a clock, a canoe, tin ware, pewter, a hat and a wig, a writing stand 4 bells and 10 bottles of liquor.

He is presumed buried in the Bow/Pembroke area of New Hampshire. (poss the Pembroke St Cm. There are other NOYES buried there.)
