Bean Noble

Nothing has been found regarding the subject of this air, but the families of the same name were mostly located in Tyrone and Fermanagh in Carolan's time. There was a Captain Noble among the Williamite forces besieged in Derry in 1689, and on the 25th April he distinguished himself in a sortie. Carolan's Miss Noble may have been a descendant of this officer. ...O'Sullivan p. 261 2001 edition.
