Hannah had been baptised at Castle Combe on 14th August 1681 and some of her siblings were baptised at Castle Combe from as early as 1661.

HESTER NOAD, Great IV Grandmother of Richard Barton

Daughter of William Buckle and Betty (nee West)

Wife of Isaac Noad

Mother of James Noad

Also Mother of Thomas, Isaac and Henry

 Hester the eldest daughter of William and Betty Buccle was baptised on 4th June 1770 at Nettleton.

There is an entry in the baptism register at Nettleton recording the baptism on 18th April 1790 of William the base born son of Hester Buckle, the child having been born on 27th December 1788. As yet I have found no further reference to this child.

Isaac Noad married Hester Buckle at Nettleton on 30th September 1793. He was described as being of West Kington and he made his mark in the register and she was described as of Nettleton and she too made her mark. The witnesses were James Clack who made his mark and Edith Bullock who signed the register.

They had four sons – Thomas, James, Isaac and Henry who were born between the years 1794 and 1803. By the year 1799 Isaac Noad and his family had moved to Leonard Stanley where their son Isaac was baptised on 3rd or 9th February 1800 and where they were in receipt of poor relief:

‘In the first half of 1799 Isaac Noad received seven shillings and sixpence and later a “Bush of flower” worth thirteen shillings. In the second half of the same year we find that he had one pound two shillings and a penny in “monies etc.”, two shillings and sixpence for his settlement examination and finally fourteen shillings and nine pence for “Removing his goods”. The last item tells its own sorry tale. Isaac and Hester Noad were very poor, they needed help but Leonard Stanley was under no obligation to give it.’

 By October 1800 they had settled in Slimbridge where they were once again in receiving poor relief and this continued until at least 1823. Their third son, Isaac Noad, was buried at Slimbridge on 10th April 1802 and their youngest son, Henry Noad, was born there in 1803 and baptised at Slimbridge Parish Church on 7th August 1803.

Hester Noad was buried on 18th January 1829 in Slimbridge aged sixty-two-years.
