I found the word noise four times in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. This quote is from Chapter 6: Pig and Pepper.
"There's no sort of use in knocking," said the Footman, "and that for two reasons. First, because I'm on the same side of the door as you are; secondly, because they're making such a noise inside, no one could possibly hear you."
