From "Ye OLD BURYING GROUND OF FAIRFIELD, CONN." by Mrs. Kate Perry, p. 147: "Rev. Noah Hobart, suggested as a colleague to Rev. Joseph Webb, in his old age, was called to be his successor by vote of the society. Mr. Hobart was well versed in the learned languages, deeply read in history, philosophy and and theology. His preaching was sound, experimental and instructive. He published treatises in regard to several controversies which agitated the Chruches. His works now extant prove him to have been among the most eminent divines and controversialists of his time. He was also a Fellow of Yale College. During his ministry, the meeting house was built which was consumed at the burning of the town. This was his only pastoral charge. In the church record is the following: "The Rev'd Noah Hobart was born in Hingham, in the Massachusetts Jany. 24, 1705-6, old stile and was ordained to the pastoral charge of this church, Feby. 17th, 1732-3. There were baptised during his ministry, 909 persons."
The son of David Hobart, he graduated from Harvard in 1724, married (1) Ellen Sloss on Sept. 22, 1735 in Fairfield, and (2) Priscilla Thomas in 1758.
