Peter1 Noyes, bp. (Andover) 30 Aug. 1590 (the immigrant); d. 23 Sept. 1657 at Sudbury, Mass. … Peter Noyes left Southampton, England, 24 April 1638 on the Confidence of London, John Jobson, Master. The families of John Bent of Weyhill and Walter Haynes were also on board. Peter Noyce of Penton [Weyhill], yeoman, aged 47, Thomas Noyce, his son, aged 15, and Elizabeth Noyce, his daughter, accompanied him, with three servants: Robert Davis, 30, John Rutter, 22, and margarett Davis, 26. Peter returned to England shortly thereafter, coming back to New England in 1639 on the Jonathan from Southampton with Peter, Nicholas, Dorothy, and Abigail Noyes. (The prevalent assumption that they were all Peter's children is an error. The Testimony of Nicholas1 Noyes of Newbury, in 1652, shows that it was he who sailed on the Jonathan with Peter1 Noyes, not a hypothetical Nicholas, son of Peter1, for whom no baptism has been found.
