    Cutting Noyes gravestone
    Cutting Noyes gravestone

    Located within five feet of the Northeastern-most corner of the cemetery. This is presumably not the actual resting place of Cutting Noyes, as several stones like this are laid flat with only inches between them. There are additional headstone remnants leaning vertical on the perimeter chain link fence within feet of these. As of April, 2012, the cut on this headstone looks recent, leaving speculation if the second half is in the nearby storage shed. [Ryan W. Noyes]

    Notes 
    • 1780 - "History of Brunswick, Topsham and Harpswell" reports Cutting Noyes in a list of early settlers and land owners on p. 868, residing in the village "about 1780." He came to Brunswick with his youngest brother, Thomas, and Amos Lunt; purchasing a portion of Fort Right and living in it until construction of his house was completed (p. 868).

      1795 - He was one of twenty proprietors of a toll bridge to Topsham. URL to activity concerning this matter in the January session of the state legislature (link/URL: goo.gl/QikiLJ). The bridge was destroyed in 1814. A page in "History of Brunswick" concerning this viewable at: goo.gl/jthzKz . Toll rate regulation for the replaced bridge occurred in Feb. 1815, after Cutting's death; goo.gl/7xpgv8.

      1798 - Saw mill land boundaries marked on record; “Cutten Noys mark of mill Loges X. N. Gurdle cut round the log. Recorded Octr 20 1798. [Anderson, Joseph Crook II. Vital Records of Brunswick, Maine, 1740-1860 and The Forsaith Book. Rockport: Picton Press, 2004, p. 106]

      1800 - Reports 8 members of household in census. Males under age 10; 1. Males 10-15; 1. Males 26-44; 1. Females under age 10; 4. Females 26-44; 1. Household members under 16; 6. Household members over 25; 2.

      1802 - A map drawn in 1802 which appears on p. 72 of "History of Brunswick" indicates location of his home as #51 on this map (link: goo.gl/qdDBxY), wide-view (link: goo.gl/VUTz3e)

      1803 - He sells his inheretance in Back Cove Farm to James Deering, marking the beginning of the Deering section of Portland (link: goo.gl/TsmTZR)

      1798 - Taxed with brother Thomas Noyes for vestature in a saw mill. Web link/URL: goo.gl/8g2pCs

      1804 - Additional saw mill land boundaries marked. “Cutting Noyes’ Mark of Logs of Mill log L N X Recorded May 17 1804” [Anderson, Joseph Crook II. Vital Records of Brunswick, Maine, 1740-1860 and The Forsaith Book. Rockport: Picton Press, 2004, p. 106]

      1810 - His home was nearby Fort George (goo.gl/cpFQ6c).1825 - If Cutting Noyes homestead remained at Lot #51 (1802 map linked above), Anne (Martin) Noyes likely lost the home during the "great fire" in December 1825. The home of a "widow Noyes" is referenced in addition to a number of mills in its vicinity. Link to article: goo.gl/v85S8D "

      He deeded one-eighth of the homestead [Cumberland Deeds 40:125].
