    Notes 
    • Nicholas was listed at Cholderton in the subsidy rolls of 14 & 15 Henry VIII [1523-4], 10 Jan. 16 Henry VIII [1525], 8 Oct. 32 Henry VIII [1540], 12 Oct. 35 Henry VIII [1543], and 2 Elizabeth I [1559/60]. (Subsidy Rolls, E179/197/156; E179/197/184; E179/197/241; E179/197/275). In 1523/4 he was taxed 21 shillings on goods valued at £21. In 1527 in the Hundred of Ambrysbury "In the parishe of Chalderton [which at that time contained only 57 persons] first Nicholas Nowyse hath whett for the allowance for thye feyndyng of his houssold xvj quarters and to sell vj quarters .... in barley, besydes to sow xxx quarters and for the feynding of his houssold xx quarters and to sell xiiij quarters." (Wiltshire Notes & Queries, 2 (1896-1898): 68-69).

      He is on the list of taxpayers for the benevolence of 1545 for Cholderton and was probably the Nicholas Noyes who was named overseer and witnessed the will of Cicilia Noyes of Shipton, widow, in 1546. ("Two Sixteenth Century Taxation Lists", G.D. Ramsay, ed. (Devizes, 1954) p.2. Consistory Court of Wincester, Unlisted Wills and Administrations, U. 129).

      At the dissolution of the monastaries, the manor of Littleton passed from the Abbot of St. Peter's, Gloucester, to the Bishop of Gloucester, who soon released it to the King, who then granted it to Sir John St. John. Disputes with tenants ensued. ("The Victoria History of Hampshire and the Isle of Wight", William Page, ed. (London, 1911), p.374; for the St. Johns, see S.T. Bindoff, "The History of Parliment[:] The House of Commons 1509-1558, vol. 3" (London, 1982), pp. 254-255, and "Wiltshire Visitation Pedigrees 1623" (London, 1954), p.168) In 1552, Nicholas St. John claimed that he had purchased two ninth parts of a lease of the manor of Littleton, a property originally leased in 1516 by Nicholas Noyes' parents. The claimants actually came to blows when St. John and his servants came to mow the pasture and were met by the servants of Nicholas Noyes' brother. (REQ2/14/71)

      John St. John, Esquire, apparently entered into the manor of Littleton by force after the elder Robert Noyes' death.

      In an undated Chancery Proceeding between 1558 and 1579, son Robert Noyes stated that his father had owned a barn and some land in Cholderton and that Nicholas entered into the premises and for divers years solely and alone did enjoy the same until about four years since being a very old man did set and assign the premises amongst divers [other] things to be occupied by the defendant [Robert] and that Nicholas' son Thomas Noyes, yeoman, sold his portion of the interest in the property to Robert Noyes.

      Nicholas' son Robert had land in Cholderton that was described in the Patent Roll of 1581/2 as "now or lately in the occupation of Nicholas Noyes or his assignes."
