    Notes 
    • The small book Descendants of Walter Haynes and Peter Noyes, of Sudbury, Mass., is a reprint for Frederick Haynes Newell’s article in the New England Historica and Genealogical Register for January 1893. It was published at Boston by David Clapp & Sons, 1893

      From page 3:
      The following facts were obtained for the greater part from a copy of an old manuscript, the original of which was written by John Haynes (b. 1684) describing the families of his great grandparents Walter Haynes and Peter Noyes, who came to this country together and located in Sudbury. This was written later than 1772, since it gives that date, and was probably prepared when the writer of the original was nearly 90 years of age. The manuscript was found among the papers of his grandson Samuel Haynes (b. 1737) by the latter’s grandson Wm. F. Haynes, and a copy was made by his cousin Clark Lewis Haynes (b. 1807) the grandfather of the present writer, Frederick Haynes Newell.
      Savage’s Genealogical Dictionary gives many of the more important of these names and dates, and a comparison shows a remarkably close agreement in details. The old manuscript, however, gives much information of the fourth generation and children succeeding — facts not otherwise recorded so far as has been ascertained. For historical narrative concerning Walter Haynes, Peter Noyes and their sons, reference should be made to the History of Sudbury, Mass., by Alfred Serano Hudson, published by the town in 1889.

      More from the Descendants of Walter Haynes and Peter Noyes:
      Walter Haynes was born in England in 1583, in the town of Sutton, Mancleville, county of Wilts. ([Footnote:] The will of widow Alice Haynes of Semley, Wilts., mother of Walter Haynes, is printed in the Register, vol. 39, pp. 263-4.) He also owned a house and out-buildings in the village of Shaston, situated in the island of Purbeck, in the south-eastern portion of Dorsetshire. He, with family and servants, arrived in Boston in 1638, in ship Confidence (see Savage, also Register vol. ii. p. 108). In the same ship came Peter Noyes, yeoman, of Penton, county of Southampton, with children and servants.
      Walter Haynes was a linen weaver, and was 55 years of age when he came to this country. About a year after his arrival, he with others removed from Watertown, having obtained a grant for a township named Sudbury, where they settled Dec. 22, 1639. He was made freeman 1640, was representative in the years 1641, 1644, 1648 and 1651, and was one of the Selectmen of Sudbury for ten years. He died Feb. 14, 1665, aged 82. (See Whitman’s History of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company, 1842, p. 97.)
      Nothing is known of his wife Elizabeth.

      Some excerpts, page 13:
      Walter Haynes was born in Old England in 1583, but we have been unable to find the exact locality. He had been living in Sutton Mandeville, County of Wilts, before he sailed for New England. ... He had the means to pay the fares of himself and six of his family, and also of the three men designated in the ship’s papers as “servants.” The term probably means they bound themselves to give a period of service in the new land, in return for the advance of their passage money. He also owned a tenement in Safton, now Shaftesbury, in Dorsetshire, which by his Will, he later devised to his married daughter, Elizabeth, the wife of Roger Gourd, who remained in England. ...

      The passenger list of the Confidence, Southampton 24 Apr 1638, includes Walter Hayne of Sutton Fandefield in the County of Wilts, linnen weaver, and Eliz his wife, ages 55; their sons Thomas, John, and Josias under 16 years of age; their daughters Suffraine and Mary; and their servants John Blanford age 27, John Riddot age 26, and Rich. Biddlecomb age 16.

      Walter Haynes of Sudbury signed his will 25 May 1659. He mentioned his wife Elizabeth; sons Josiah, John, and Thomas; son-in-law Thomas Noyes; daughters Suffrance Treadway and Mary Noyes; son-in-law Roger Gourd in Safton, Dorsetshire; executor son John Haynes; witnesses Jno. Blanford, Thomas Goodenow, Thomas Plimpton, & Edward Wright. An inventory was taken 28 Feb 1664. The will is transcribed on pages 19–21 of Walter Haynes of Sutton Mandeville. [2, 3]
