      It is said that Judge Noyes "was a tall, grave man, the terror of Sabbath-breakers. He never allowed a traveler to pass through Lyme on the Lord's Day without some extraordinary excuse. He was strictly conventional. When on horseback with his grown-up sons, the latter never presumed to ride on a line with him, but always at a respectful distance behind."

    Located further south on Lyme Street in Old Lyme from the house of William Noyes, Jr. is a house built the same year (1817) and designed by the same architect (Samuel Belcher). The Federal style house, whose original carpenters were shipbuilders, was constructed for John Sill, a “customs runner” who secreted his smuggled goods in hidden closets in the house. With Sill’s arrest in 1820, the house was bought by William Noyes and in 1822 by Charles Johnson McCurdy, a Yale graduate, politician, ambassador and judge. In 1944, an extensive restoration was undertaken by owner C. Whitney Carpenter with the local architect, Robert I. Carter, who later bought the home. In 1983, the house was sold by Carter’s children to the Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts. It now houses offices and gallery space.

    Amid the recipes, medicinal cures, and obituary clippings pasted into a simple string-bound scrapbook appears a hand-written list of Judge William Noyes’ (1728–1807) slaves. Kept initially by his great-granddaughter Mary Ann Noyes Learned (1818–1875) and later maintained by her cousin Martha Noyes (1833–1874), the scrapbook documents the family’s Negro servants over four generations.

    Martha’s older sister Ellen Noyes Chadwick (1824–1900) had known the last of them, a “good Christian woman” called “old black Jenny” (1748–1832)
