NOE Family History

Recorded as Noe, Noy, Noye, Noyce, Noyse, Noice, Noyes, and possibly others, this is an English medieval surname. However spelt it is a patronymic form of the biblical male given name Noah from the Hebrew word "noach" meaning long-lived. The are two possible origins for the surname. The first is as an Introduction into Europe by the returning Crusaders knights of the 12th century, fresh from their many attempts to rescue the city of Jerusalem from the hands of the Muslims. It became the fashion for these returning warriors to christen their subsequent children with biblical or hebrew names, which later developed into surnames.
