Fitzgerald and Hassett state that the Noan estate of the Taylor family was sold to Stanley Black in 1853. Lyons records that he paid £20,300 for it. Black's only daughter and heiress Harriet maried in 1860 Dr Thomas R. Armitage and the Noan estate passed to the Armitage family, who were still resident in the mid 20th century.
