HIS WILL IS DATED APRIL 10, 1590, AND PROVED JULY 28 1600. HE AND WIFE SYBIL HAD 4 SONS AND 1 DAUGHTER. ELEAZER HAD NO ISSUE BUT THE OTHERS SON'S PROGENY, IN WHOLE OR IN PART SETTLED IN NEW ENGLAND. AT THIS TIME IS A SEASON OF GREAT RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION. FROM THE "MAGNA BRITTANNICA" WE LEARN THAT WAYBRED IS A TOWN IN SUFFOLK COUNTY, ENGLAND...
JOHN NOYES, OF LAXFIELD, SHOEMAKER, WAS BURNED AT LAXFIELD SEPT. 21, 1557 (VOL. V. p. 305)

OF THIS NAME, SOMETIMES SPELLED WITHOUT 'E', 20 HAD MANY YRS. AGO BEEN GR. AT HARV. OF WH. 7 WERE CLERG. AND 20 AT OTHER N.E. COLL. OF WH. 9 WERE CLERG. THAT THE COLL. CATAL. CAPRICIOUSLY DIVIDES THE FAM. IS PLAIN ENO. AS REV. MOSES HAS THE AUTHENTIC ENG. LETTERS, AND HIS S. REV. SAMUEL LOSES THE FINAL LETTER. MUCH OF THE FOREGOING IS DERIV. FROM A VERY VAL. TRACT ON SUFF. EMIGR. BY REV. JOSEPH HUNTER, F.A.S. IN 3 MASS. HIST. COLL. X 158, WH. INFORMS US, THAT, AT THE HERALD'S OFFICE IT APPEARS, IN EARLY TIMES, THIS FAM. WAS ENTIT. TO COAT OF ARMS.
