    Notes 
    • Aaron and Betsy were from NH. They moved to Tunbridge sometime around 1774. Aaron is credited with service in the Revolutionary War. He was a private from NH. His residence was given as both Pembrook NH and Chelsea VT (the town north of Tunbridge). On 23 Dec 1775 Aaron was signed up by Lieut. Samuel Carr to serve in the Continental Army in Capt. Erza Badlam's Company in Col. Loamni Baldwin's 26th Regiment. He was paid in advance in Jan 1776. He was in the same company and regiment in Feb and Mar 1776 and was paid in New York. He was reported discharged on 27 Mar 1776. His war service is often confused with another Aaron6 Noyes (Jona5, Jos4, Thos3, James2, Wm1 - pension #S29349) of Newbury and Methuen MA. This Aaron was born 17 Feb 1758, married first Phebe Morse, married second Betty Johnson and died 23 Oct 1724. He was in John Davis' Co. - James Frye's Regt., John Peabody's Co., - Ebenezer Francis' Regt. and Joshua Abbot's Co. - Samuel Gerrish's Regt.. Aaron (above) became a farmer next. He was one of the first settlers of Tunbridge VT. Tunbridge was granted by NH Gov. Benning Wentworth on 3 Sep 1761 to a group of 65 investors, many of whom were from Salisbury CT. The town was 6 square miles and located on the first branch of the White River. On 16 Oct 1780 much of the town was destroyed when it was attacked by British Lieut. Horton and 300 Indians. Tunbridge was organized as a town in 1786. Aaron first shows up on Tunbridge deeds in 1787 when the town records started. On 15 Jun 1787 he bought lot #119 from Nathaniel Kingsbury for L41. On 16 Oct 1787 he sold the same lot to David Knox for L40. The next year he bought the adjacent lot to the west (#118) from Samuel Brown for L60. This lot, located on the East Hill, became his home lot for the next 40 years. Aaron bought and sold a number of town lots: 50% of lot #165 from Amos Allen for L20 on 14 Apr 1789 which was sold to Joseph Standby for L25 on 8 Oct 1790; lot #211 from Hezekel Hutcthnson for L45 on 30 Dec 1793 sold to brother-in-law Joel Emery for the same; 50% of lot #149 from brother-in-law Jonathan Ladd for $300 on 9 Mar 1801 sold to his son Aaron on 9 Apr 1805 for the same. He also bought lot #212 from Alexander Steadman on 5 Jan 1793 for L40. Aaron sold off parts of his home lot (#118): on 9 Apr 1805 to son True W. for $300; on the same date to sons True W. and Aaron for $900; and on 18 May 1808 to John Moody for $150. Sons Aaron and True W. sold their parts to Aaron on 22 Oct 1810 for the same money. Aaron's farm was passed between his sons over a number of years. On 14 Sep 1813 he sold the entire lot (#118) to True W. for $700. Aaron still lived on the farm there. On 9 Apr 1818 True W. sold it to brother Enoch for $500. On the same day Enoch sold it back to Aaron and Betty for " good causes ". Enoch was to support his parents with provisions, clothing, lodging, nursing and medicine and take care of his parent's farm and buildings during the rest of their natural lives. The farm was to revert to Enoch after his parents died but Aaron sold the farm to son Cyrus on 14 Feb 1822 for $150. Aaron was living here at that date. Court records show that Betsy was destitute and a pauper living in the care of Tunbridge in Jun 1836. She died shortly after. Aaron and Betsy are buried in the East Hill Cemetery which is located south of the Tunbridge - Stratton Road, about 3 miles from Route 110.
