2004-2005: Birth, Zoe Tate and leaving the village Edit

Charity went into labour whilst she was serving time in prison for murdering her ex-husband Chris Tate. She was rushed to hospital where Noah was born three months prematurely via emergency cesarean, weighing only two pounds two ounces. Charity planed to have her baby adopted as she could not offer him a future whilst in prison. She initially didn't know who her baby's father was after she slept with her cousins Cain and Marlon Dingle as well as Chris, so Cain's father Zak Dingle ordered a DNA test convinced that the baby was his grandchild. Noah's sister Debbie Jones was against Charity having the baby adopted like she was and named him Enoch, which means the son of Cain in the bible. Charity didn't like the name and they agreed to name the baby Noah. Whilst waiting for the DNA test results Noah was diagnosed with Necrotising Entercolitis. He didn't respond to treatment and needed surgery. As the Dingles prepared for Noah's surgery the DNA results arrived and everyone was shocked when the results revealed that Chris was Noah's father. Chris' sister Zoe decided that she would get custody of Noah and Charity agreed in return for the evidence that would

Zoe was able to take baby Christopher home to Home Farm when he was two months old. Christopher was christened in St. Mary's Church with Scott Windsor as his godfather. Debbie attended the service despite Zoe not wanting her there. Zoe relented and admitted that Debbie should be a part of Christopher's life. Zoe planned to adopt Christopher but Social Services did not allow it to go ahead due to Zoe's previous mental health problems and already having her hands full with her daughter Jean as well as Chris's other son Joseph. Charity changed her mind and asked for baby Christopher back so Zoe reluctantly handed him back to Charity in July 2004. Charity changed his name back to Noah and he moved into Holdgate Farm with her and her fiancé Tom King as well as Tom's family.

Noah left the village to live in Spain in March 2005 with Charity after her relationship with Tom broke down.

2007-2013: Return to Emmerdale and numerous step-dads Edit

By 2007 Charity and Noah had returned to England and had moved in with Michael Conway, who Charity later got engaged to. Noah believed Michael was his real father. Debbie and Cain gatecrashed Charity and Micheal's wedding and revealed Michael and Debbie's affair as well as Charity lies about being pregnant and lying about her past. Michael said a heartfelt goodbye to Noah. Charity and Noah returned to the village and moved into Tug Ghyll with Cain, Debbie and Debbie's daughter Sarah. Charity and Noah briefly left the village but they returned and move in with Marlon at Tall Trees Cottage. On Christmas Day 2009 Charity and Cain got engaged and they moved back in together.

In February 2010 Cain arranged for a Emmerdale Haulage lorry full of sat-navs to be hijacked, unaware that Carl King has asked Charity to do the run. Noah was in the cab with Charity when it was hijacked, leaving him terrified. A few day after the hijacking Noah told Charity that he saw Cain during the hijacking. Charity was furious and called off their wedding, although they stay together. The following month Cain secretly arranged for he and Charity to get married. Charity doesn't go through with the ceremony in part due to Noah not being there.

In early 2011 Charity and Noah moved into Holdgate Farm with Jai Sharma after Charity and Cain split up. Charity and Jai began a relationship and Noah eventually warmed to him. They married in January 2012 and soon after Jai wanted he and Charity to have a child of their own. Charity didn't want anymore children so Jai asked to adopt Noah. They ended up just changing Noah's name to Noah Christopher Sharma. In November 2013 Charity discovered that Jai had a secret son Archie with the cleaner Rachel. She was furious and filed for divorce. Noah was devastated to have lost another father figure. Jai and Charity tried to make a go of things but they didn't work out so Charity and Noah moved in with Debbie, Sarah and Jack at Debbie's new house Mulberry Cottage.

2013-2015: Declan Macey and living at Butler's Farm Edit

On Christmas Day 2013, Charity gave Declan Macey an alibi after he set fire to his house, Home Farm. In April 2014, Charity discovered that she was pregnant with his baby. She planed to have an abortion but Declan found out and proposed to Charity and told Noah that he was to be a big brother. Charity and Declan married the following month, and they changed Noah's surname to Macey. Charity aborted the baby and pretended that she had a miscarriage, and blamed Declan's sister Megan, after she pushed her. In September, Charity stopped Jai from taking Noah to football as he wanted to take Megan as well. Annoyed at Charity, Noah took a bottle of her wine out to play with best friend Jacob.

Jacob refused to take a drink of the wine but Noah took a swig. Noah collapsed and was rushed to hospital, where Charity and Declan were told that Noah was in a critical condition. They learned that the bottle of wine that Noah drank from was spiked with pesticides, and that Noah had taken an allergic reaction to pesticides. Megan was arrested attempting to murder Charity, as it was Charity's bottle of wine. After Noah was released from hospital Charity left him with Debbie as, Declan planned to Charity to a secluded cottage to relax and get away from everything that had been going on. Whilst at the cottage Declan tried to murder Charity but she escaped onto a boat in the middle of a lake. Declan managed to get aboard the boat and aimed a flare gun at Charity but he ended up shooting Megan's son Robbie. Charity hit Declan over the head with the gun and he fell into the water. When Chariy got home she broke the news to Noah that Declan wouldn't be coming back. Charity and Noah moved back into Home Farm alone and Charity reverted she and Noah's surname to Dingle. Declan returned briefly in October 2014 and told Jai about Charity blackmailing Rachel to leave, as well as sending a confession of the truth about the fire and Charity's involvement in it. Due to the video, the insurance company reposed Home Farm. Jai kidnapped Charity and locked her in a container to try and make her tell him where Rachel was with Archie. Noah thought that Charity abandoned him so he asked Debbie if he could stay with her instead. Charity moved in with Cain and his wife Moira at Butlers Farm and persuaded Noah to move in too.

Noah started to bully Jacob in November, because he felt like Charity hade abandoned him. Noah wrote 'MURDERER' on the front of Wishing Well Cottage, using spray-paint. This made Belle Dingle's name stand out because she pushed her friend, Gemma Andrews and she hit her head off some rock, dying later in hospital. He also made Jacob use spray-paint on and trash Bernice Blackstock's beauty salon. Noah got Jacob to steal money from the church, but was caught in the act by Kerry Wyatt and vicar Harriet Finch. They took Jacob to his adoptive mother Alicia Metcalfe, where they explained everything. Alicia found spray-paint in Jacob's bag, so Kerry assumed that Jacob hade vandalised the salon, so she started to shout at Jacob, unaware that Noah made him do it. Jacob confessed the following morning about Noah bullying him, to Alicia and her husband David. Jacob refused to take the bus to get to school because Noah was also getting the bus. Alicia and David told Charity. Charity punished Noah by not allowing to go on a skiing trip, that Connelton Primary School were offering to students in Noah's year group.

In January 2015, Charity was sent to prison for perverting the course of justice. Noah was originally going to be staying with Zak and Lisa at Wishing Well Cottage, but he asked to stay at Butlers with Cain and Moira as he looked to Cain as a father figure. Cain took Noah to visit Charity but she stopped sending her family visiting orders, which left Noah heartbroken. In June, Charity sent Debbie a visiting order. Whilst Debbie was visiting Charity, Charity went into labour, without any of her family even knowing she was pregnant, and gave birth to a baby boy. Charity had hoped that having a baby would reduce her sentence but it didn't so she handed the baby over to Debbie to look after. Noah was not happy with Charity, and thought that she stopped seeing him because she was more interested in her new baby. He was also frosty towards the baby, who the Dingle's name Moses and asked to stay with Cain and Moira for good. Charity told Moses' father Ross Barton that she wouldn't tell anyone that he was the father if he split up Cain and Moira for her. Ross suggested to Noah that Charity was sending him visiting orders but Moira was not telling him about them, but Moira managed to convince Noah that that was not true.

2016 -: Living at The Woolpack Edit

In January 2016, Noah overheard Moira talking about Charity selling him as a baby, he was upset, and after a phone call to Charity, Noah ran away. Emma Barton found Noah wandering the streets and hid him in The Grange B&B overnight. Moira and Cain were frantic with worry but Noah turned up the following day. Charity was released in March 2016, and she and Noah moved into The Woolpack, after Charity had bought Diane Sugden's share of the pub.

Noah's relationship with his mother continued to be strained, and when Moira's daughter Holly died suddenly in September 2016, Noah, eager to help, started to help out around the farm. However, Moira persuaded Noah to try and bond with Charity instead of her. In October, Robert Sugden found out that Noah was sending crude anonymous texts to Liv Flaherty claiming to be her deceased father Gordon, who sexually abused Liv's half-brother, Noah's cousin Aaron, when he was a child. Possessing a nasty side himself, Robert agreed to keep Noah's secret to himself, and simultaneously warned him off tormenting Liv any further.

In 2018 Noah met his half-brother Joe Tate who had returned to the village and started seeing Debbie under the alias Tom Waterhouse. Noah began skipping school to visit Joe at Home Farm where they played chess and poker together. Charity found out and reluctantly agreed to let Noah keep seeing Joe. In October 2018, Joe disappeared leaving Noah devastated.
