Noah Mann
Half Moons most famous landlord
The official cricketing sites list 2 Noah Manns. It became obvious that his son also was a great cricketer.
Noah Mann
Born 15 November, 1756, Northchapel, Sussex
Died December 1789, Northchapel, Sussex [aged 33 years]
Major teams Hampshire
Batting style Left-hand bat
Bowling style
Left-arm bowler [underarm]
Noah Mann [Jnr]
Born 1783, Northchapel, Sussex
Died 1825, London [aged 42 years]
Major teams
Marylebone Cricket Club
The skills were obviously inherited as he was only aged 6 when his father died.

The public house in nearby Lurgashall is named The Noahs Ark and although no mention is made of him in their pub history the name seems more than a coincidence. If anyone knows better....let us know.
