  • Name James NOYES  [1, 2
    • Rev. James Noyes came to Stonington to preach on an invitation of the town in 1664. The meeting house in which he preached was a short distance southwesterly of the present residence off Mr. Henry M. Palmer, west of Montauk avenue. Traditionally, we learn that he resided in the family of Thomas Stanton, Sr., until he was ordained Sept. 11, 1674, and the next day he was married to Miss Dorothy Stanton, daughter of Thomas and Ann Lord Stanton. He made his permanent place of abode upon a large tract of land in Stonington, Conn., which he purchased of Samuel Willis of Hartford, Conn., where he erected him a dwelling house on the site of the present first house, south of Anguilla on the highway from there to Wequetequock, which became the first parsonage of the First Congregational Church of Stonington, where he lived the remainder of his life, dying Dec. 30, 1719. For the first ten years of his ministry he preached as a licentiate, and the last 45 years as an ordained clergyman. He was chaplain with Capt. George Denison's expedition that captured Canonchet, chief sachem of the Narragansett Indians, April, 1676. [1]
