From Little's State of Maine
"Deacon Nicholas, fourth son and child of Rev. William and Anne (Parker) Noyes, was born in England, in 1615-16. Rev. James and Deacon Nicholas Noyes, Brothers, in March, 1633, embarked form New England in the "Mary and John" of London, with their cousin, Rev. Thomas Parker. No record has been found of the place and date of the landing of James and Nicholas, but it was probably on the bank of the Mystic river, as the records show that they settled in Medford in 1634, and that they moved to Newbury the following year. On arriving, they sailed up the Parker river (then called the Quascacunquen) to a point a short distance below where the bridge now stands. Tradition says that Nicholas was the first to leap ashore. He walked 40 miles to Cambridge to qualify as a voter when he was made a freeman, May 17, 1637. He was a deputy to the General Court at Boston from Newbury, Dec 19, 1660, May 28, 1679, May 19, 1680, and Jan 4 1681. He was chosen deacon of the First Parish, March 20, 1634, and died November 23, 1701, at Newbury. His will was made July 4, 1700, and approved Dec. 29, 1701. The personal estate was 1531 pounds, and the real estate 1160 pounds. 'In 1652 many were brought before the court for not observing the sumptuary laws of 1651.' The records say 'Nicholas Noyes' wife, Hugh Marches' wife, and William Chandlers' wife were each prosecuted for wearing a silk hood and scarf, but were discharged on proof that their husbands were worth 200 pounds each. John Hutchins' wife was also discharged upon testifying that she was brought up above the ordinary rank.' Nicholas Noyes married about 1640, Mary Cutting, daughter of Captain John Cutting (a shipmaster of London), and Mary, his wife. John Cutting in his will mentions Mary, wife of Nicholas Noyes. Their children were: Mary, Hannah, John, Cutting, Sarah, Timothy, James, Abigail, Rachel, Thomas, and three who died young."
