    Notes 
    • Savage, Vol. 3, p.297: Shattuck, in Farmer, says he was selectman 28 yrs. from 1662, yet we find not his name among the freem. of the Col. He was appointed constable 1667 and 1668, justice of the peace in 1679, and many other offices. He was a man of considerable property, owning a number of slaves.

      First appears in Sudbury records, February 16, 1662.

      Since Joseph, son of James and Sarah (BROWN) NOYES, was born in Newbury 14 Oct 1637 (Newbury VR) and his birth was, therefore not on the town records of Sudbury, and as he settled in Sudbury (where the Joseph, son of Peter lived at about the same time), it was thought that he was the latter Joseph, son of Peter. The record, however, shows that Peter's son, Joseph, was a merchant in Charlestown, in 1660. In a letter received at the Probate Court with a will dated Dec. 31, 1659, proved 2nd of April 1661, he mentions brothers Thomas and Peter of Sudbury, and sister Abigail, so this must be the son of Peter and not the Joseph NOYES of Sudbury after 1662 who married Mary Darvell, as some writers have claimed. Joseph, son of Peter, was on a voyage to Barbadoes when he made out his will and died there. [NEHGR 47:72].
      The earliest mention of Joseph, son of James, in the Sudbury records is 16 Feb 1662 when he was chosen one of the selectmen, which office he held over 28 years. He was appointed constable 1667 and 1668; justice of the peace in 1679 and to many other offices. He was a man of considerable property, owned a number of slaves, and died 16 Nov 1717 in the Bermuda Islands.
