Danyell Noddell, born 1611 probably in Misterton or Beckingham, died 1672. He must have had some formal education, as is shown by his legal expertise and knowledge of Latin, but there is no record of his having been at University or having been admitted to an inn of court. When examined in the Exchequer in July 1647, his status was given as "gentleman" and his residence as Owston in the Isle of Axholme. After Edgehill, he raised local forces to oppose Sir Ralph Hansby. Noddel was spoken of as a staunch parliamentarian, and combined his allegiance to Parliament with persistent championing of the cause of the Epworth commoners, to whom he was attorney and solicitor from about 1642 to 1662.
