    Notes 
    • He went to Norway, Me., about 1804; he had a good education for the times, and taught school in winter, engaging in other business in summer, until 1810, when he taught the public school in winter and a private school in summer until 1815. He began clearing his farm in 1810, the location being near the center of the present town site. He was a surveyor of land, some of his surveys are in the county records. He was also a Justice of the Peace, and a conveyancer of real estate; and served as county commissioner for Oxford County.

      Late in his life he published a history of Norway, the first history of an Oxford county town. It was a volume of 214 pages. Its array of facts and incidents does much credit to his observation and memory, of men and things, although the matter was crudely put together. The facts are not arranged in chronological order and not being indexed the work is not of easy reference. It speaks well for the town of Norway, for Mr. Noyes' book was written by a resident of Norway, printed upon Norway paper (manufactured at Steeps Falls) and bound in Norway by Noyes and Beals. (The Noyes book binder was Robert Noyes, also president of the Norway Savings Bank.)
