The name des Noyers by first dropping the article became Noyers and later was corrupted to Noyes.

"In 1896 a letter was was received from Col. Henry T. Noyes, of Rochester, N.Y. from which the following extract is made: 'In 1883 I visited Choulderton, Wiltshire, England, and found some interesting facts. Rev. William Noyes' family at one time owned the living in Wiltshire, but their lands were confiscated by the crown, on account of the dissenting views held by them.
'I have a sketch of the old church, which, however, has been remodeled and a part made over into a parish school. The wife of Rev. WIlliam Noyes was a sister of the scholar, Robert Parker, whom mather called one of the greatest scholars of the English nation, and was, in a measure, the father of all "non-conformists."'
"The old church at Choulderton, of which Rev. William Noyes was rector, as shown in the cut was forty feet two inches in length, by sixteen feet three inches in width. It was said to have been torn down, or remodeled to a parish school, in 1850."
