Noyes Surname Origin

Noy is an abbreviation for Noah. 'In England, in the seventeenth century, Attorney-General Noy was succeeded by Sir John Banks, and Chief-justice Heath being found guilty of bribery, Sir John Finch obtained the office; hence it was said: 'Noy's flood is gone, The Banks appear, Heath is shorn down, And Finch sings here.'--Lower. In the Cornish British, Noi is a nephew, and Noys night.
